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.

You can sit in the bar next door to eat and drink if you wish, the owner is the same. This place is great and located right near the Acropolis and what appears to be a decent hostel although I wasn't staying there. If you are in the mood for fish and chips and perhaps some onion rings, then I... More

Great quick breakfast near the Acropolis. We were staying at nearby Hotel Tony & this was an excellent breakfast option. Small good value for money menu...their website shows current menu. After 9.30am it is not as busy as the "in-house" guests [backpackers] service finishes then.
