Welcome letter from the owner
Having the privilege of working in an industry that I love and in an area so special to me, makes every day a memorable one.
At Ammos Estiatorio, we have put a great deal of energy into assuring that our guests are welcomed and treated as family while dining at our establishment. The feeling of warmth we create stems from my family’s roots in the hospitality business.
Starting from day one we set the bar of having the most exquisite Mediterranean and Atlantic jewels on your plate, and we are committed to keeping up to our standards for years to come.
I thank you for helping Ammos Estiatorio to grow and become what it has and for allowing us to share the joy of all things Greek.

We import many of the fine ingredients
directly from Greece
We import many of the fine ingredients directly from Greece, such as sea salt, dried oregano from mountain Taygetos, capers and caper berries, many of the staples used in the dishes-like first and cold fresh extra virgin olive oil, selected honey, strained Greek yogurt and of course the barrel-aged feta cheese produced on family farms.
Our sea salt is from the Greek isles and is bright white in colour (thanks to the sun). It is a coarse salt high in salinity (or salty flavour) without a heavy mineral taste.
Our ground oregano comes from hand picked herbs from Greece’s Mt. Taygetos, the tallest mountain on Peloponnese. It is ground from naturally sun dried and is 100% pure.
Greece is where the caper plant (Capparis spinosa) is thought to be endemic. Capers have been harvested and preserved in Greece for millennia.
Greek EVOO. Exceptional quality, aroma and taste. The oil is from the first pressing of the olives with no chemicals or hot water added during processing.
Believed by many as the best tasting honey in the world, Greek honey is very unique due to its diverse flora, abundance of sunshine and dry climate.
Greek yogurt is one of those foods that contradicts the saying “if it tastes good, it must be bad for you.” It is heavily strained to remove liquid whey and lactose, leaving behind a tangy, creamy product.
Greek Barrel Aged Feta, matured in wooden barrels, is made from fresh sheep’s milk from free grazing animals. The natural aroma of mediterranean grasses in combination with the aroma of the wood, gives a unique rich flavour.
Saffron, the gold of Greek land as it is called, is one of the most beloved and precious spices of ancient cultures because of its aroma, colour, pharmaceutical and aphrodisiac properties.
