Ammos is a quaint fish tavern located at the beachfront of Perivolos in Santorini. A typical fish tavern, the main theme at Ammos is fish. Owned by Angelos and Olina, the tavern is tastefully decorated and every single adornment, from the wooden boat-fridge, and the hand painted oil-vinegar bottles, to the charming little courtyard made from local building materials and painted in Cycladic colors, all reeks of good taste. The most popular item on the menu is, of course, the staggering choice of local appetizers and a variety of Greek salads prepared from fresh Santorinian ingredients, like the tiny cherry-red tomatoes, caper, zucchini, or cheese. The salads are best enjoyed with traditional cheese and white table wine. The fluffy zucchini balls are a pretty common item of a tavern menu.
At Ammos, a variety of keftedes (balls) are made with locally grown vegetables such as aubergine, tomatoes, wild green or sometimes, even chicken, beef or minced lamb. Some innovative twists to the cuisine has taken the form of little shrimp and cheese pie appetizer. The main course has the light moussaka with white eggplant, or the succulent steamed mussels with garlic. Although the main theme is seafood, the Ammos menu also includes a variety of meat and vegetarian dishes, as well as special dishes for children. To end the meal, there is the famous dessert of grilled apple steeped in Vinsanto, a dessert wine and served along with ice cream. The tavern is open for lunch and dinner.
