For an escape from gyros and souvlaki

The fish cafe has great cheap food, and everything on their menu is worth a try. The Quesadillas, the burgers, the fish and chips and my go-to; the 4 euro chicken wrap!

Really disappointing and certainly not worth the price we paid.. We stayed in the Athens hostel and missed the complimentary breakfast by 20 mins as I thought that it ends at 10am but it finished at 9.30am. So i ordered the English breakfast for 6 euros and ice chocolate for 2.5 euros. The ice chocolate was one of the most... More

Tasty, simple food. We were staying in the Athens Studios above and lived on the Greek Salad here. The quesadillas and fish & chips are also great.

Amazing fish and chips, share the seafood platter for €14 to try a bit of everything! Burgers are good too but I found the buns a little more dense that I'd like. Eat in the sports bar next door. Service is absolutely lovely, everyone was friendly every time we went.

My boyfriend and I went to fish cafe for lunch and we ordered the fish and the fried squid. It was super yummy and the price was very reasonable for the area! Service is fast which suited us as we were in a hurry to catch our tour bus! I can't recommend this place enough :) it's not Greek but... More

Stumbled onto the Fish Cafe, which was actually quite close to our hotel. Quick service, pretty good fried fish- reminded me of a famous U.S. seafood fast food chain. It is attached to a sports bar that has a number of screens.

This place is great. Tasty simple food. Ready fast, and all at a reasonable price. I love the simplicity of it! Even though it says fish cafe, they also do amazing burgers and quesadillas. Just off the main restaurant strip it's a lot quieter than the really touristy haunts. On a side note, it is right beside a laundrette and... More

Long trip, needed to do laundry. On one side a lively local tavern and on the other side The Fish Café. Raj and Alex are the animated pair of operators of The Fish Café, in Athens. They made our dining experience fun and satisfying. The food was good and the beer was cold. What more could you ask for. Oh... More

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.
