Having spent a good deal of time in Greece i fell in love with the culture, the people but above all the food. I love Greek food but have found that my enthusiasm is not shared by everyone. Too greasy, too boring, too unhealthy… But who knows, maybe you like Tzatziki and Dolmades as much as i do. If you do, then i am sharing some of my favourite Greek restaurants with you. If you don’t then you have eight new places in which to discover Greek cuisine. καλή όρεξη!
Oh My Greek: Zorba The Newcomer
Every time i see the food truck of Oh My Greek at the Zurich Openair or the Christmas village on the Sechseläutenplatz a smile immediately crosses my face. My taste buds go into overdrive with anticipation of the delicious Pita Gyros and the Halloumi fries. Recently owner Nikos and his son Alexandros opened their first restaurant in Lochergut and I think I will soon be a regular guest. See you there.
I still haven’t worked out whether this Greek taverna is called L&P oder Le Beaujolais but, as the latter would be a strange name, i think i’m just going to think of it as L&P. What is important is that there a very varied menu which caters for every palate and the portions are huge. I recommend trying the appetiser plate which gives you a chance to try the spectrum of greek cuisine.
When I visit Nikos Taverne in the Letzigraben I feel as if I am taking part in a Greek family dinner. Landlady Voula and the rest of the team are very hospitable and always available for a short chat (for example about the most beautiful spots in Greece or the new look of her restaurant, which has recently been completely renovated). My favourite dish is the Pita Gyros and the grill dishes. If you fancy a cheap meal out, the lunch menu is a very reasonable 16 to 20 francs.
«Live today, because tomorrow is another day.» With this motto the Taverna Apollo welcomes its guests from Thursday to Sunday in Schwamendingen. I have to agree with this because, with a glass of ouzo (usually offered if you behave nicely) in your hand, it is very easy to forget everyday worries. I especially recommend the lamb racks, which, if the weather is nice can be enjoyed in the garden.
If you fancy a romantic dinner then i recommend the Ynos in Europalle. Although it is more expensive the dishes taste great and look fantastic, if you are the type of person that likes to instagram their food. If the restaurant is full and your lust for Tzatziki and Souvlaki needs to be slaked then the Bistro Yamas is next door. Don’t worry, it’s run by the same people.
Whether you want to take away or eat in the restaurant eating at Mythos in Stauffacher is tasty and inexpensive. Furthermore, you have come to the right place if you are in the mood for a glass or ten of greek wine. Not only is the selection great but starts at a very reasonable 5.50 CHF per glass.
At .P. Catering in District 4 you will not only find Greek food, but also the perfect place to enjoy it: a very cosy garden terrace. If you like, you can also order the individual dishes to take away and with the selection of local specialities (oils, wine, etc.) you have the chance to take a taste of Greece home with you.
A wise man once said, Never judge a book by its cover! This restaurant does not have a website, nor does it look particularly inviting from the outside. Nevertheless, a visit to the Tavernaki Kalymnos is well worth it. Here you'll find well seasoned and authentic dishes, served in decent portions. If you're out with friends, I recommend the large meat or fish platters for sharing.

Over 144,000 private homes in Ukraine have been damaged so far by Russia's brutal war of aggression. And, unfortunately, more and more are being damaged every day. Windows have been broken particularly frequently, as they burst even in distant explosions due to the resulting shock waves.
Before the arrival of winter, we would like to bring as many windows as possible to Ukraine so that they can be quickly installed there and people do not have to freeze in their homes. After all, winters in Ukraine are usually long and cold.
While prices for building materials in Ukraine have skyrocketed since the Russian invasion, thousands of high-quality used windows are disposed of in Switzerland every year.
In close partnership with the Basel-based association RE-WIN, we collect these used but still fully functional windows in Switzerland and bring them to Ukraine in the spirit of the circular economy. There, the windows are then quickly installed.
Libereco is recognized as a non-profit organization and will gladly provide all crowdfunders from Switzerland and Liechtenstein with a donation receipt for their tax return for their contribution to the window transports.
