Come and taste the Fagri (Mediterranean Snapper) and the Barbounia (Red Mullets).Join us for drinks during our lounge hours - the perfect place to unwind after work before heading home on the train, and a great setting for a meet-up anytime.Ammos Estiatorio will dazzle and delight guests with two stunning venues for dining and entertaining.
