A tasty fish cone

I visited this place once because I was in the area and wanted so badly to eat fish & chips again after my visit in London. So I ordered the small cod. I was really surprised when a quite big cone with two pieces of fish and loads of chips arrived. The fish was tasty, but somehow reminded me of... read more

Don't buy food from here, both myself and a friend had food poisoning from this place, we ate here on different days and the next day both had food poisoning, which had us in the bathroom for an entire day afterwards. When I recovered I went to go complain to only be laugh out of the cafe, and the employee... More

Had a large serving of the fish & chips for dinner and it was great! Decided to stop by again for brunch. Had cheese omelet for breakfast and waited for awhile til it hits lunch time to have the fish & chips again! Good tasty food, and reasonably priced too. Highly recommended!

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 crunchy salad completed the beautifully... More

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!

Staying in Thissio / Makriyanni

Neighborhood Profile
Thissio / Makriyanni
Named after the well-preserved Thission (ancient temple of Hephaestus), Thissio is blessed with a small wooded park and some less frenetic streets that offer numerous quieter places to stay and eat. Largely pedestrianized Apostolou Pavlou Street runs between the Acropolis and forested Filopappou Hill, well worth climbing for more great panoramas, until it merges with Dionysiou Areopagitou Street. This leads to the up-and-coming area of Makriyanni, whose centerpiece is the magnificent new Acropolis Museum. Opposite the museum is the entrance to the southern slopes of the Acropolis, while the eponymous metro station nearby is at the top of Makriyanni Street, another strip of touristic cafés and restaurants.
