This is the second time we've visited this great little cafe, after discovering it shortly before leaving Athens on our last trip. We had the sharing fish platter with prawns, squid and fish all done in a tasty crispy batter, with tartare and sweet chilli sauces to dip in to and chunky herb-sprinkled chips.

A small, industrial-looking palce with great grilled kalamari. Situated conveniently next to a coin laundromat, and a sharming bar that caters to foreigners, all owned by the same folks. There is also a tourist office that offers luggage storage if you are traveling outside Athens.

This place is recommended by Rick Steves. The name is not actually fish cafe although the location is correct. Food was amazing.

This is nice little place to get out of the hustle and bustle of the main tourist drag which only a block away. There's a laundromat next door so travellers like me can do our washing while having a meal.

The waitress was nice and fast. Free drinking water was at our table immediately :-) the food was great and cheap. They have not only fish, but also really tasty burgers. The fish was good, but fried, hence fatty. Their yoghurt desert is soooo good! It is definitely worth a visit after visiting the Akropolis!

Chips were good, but the fish was super soggy and not flavorful. The greek salad was good, but it is everywhere in Athens. It also wasn't as affordable as it is touted here.
