A few days back, we wanted a break from the usual offerings in Plaka. We took the metro from Syntagma to Megaro Moussikis, and walked around the corner from the United States Embassy. There is an authentic, off-the-tourist-map Athens neighbourhod with hidden gems. The Fish...Market is THE place to go for fresh, well-presented seafood in Athens. The owner, John, knows the inside of the fish business. He sources his produce from the first-rate suppliers. The quality of the seafood is obvious and comes through in the palatable taste. He will take his time to explain the various foods. He is highly knowledgeable with pairing wine to the meals. Grab a table outside on the sidewalk. Indulge in the slower pace of the Athenian lifestyle. Order a couple of appetizers and share them with your table-mates. Have a second glass of wine and prepare yourself for the best meal you will have in Athens.More

If you are in Athens and like fresh fish, this is definitely the place you’re looking for. Went to the restaurant with best reviews closest to our hotel on our first night in Athens and SO glad we did. The food is just great with...modern twists to dishes like the salmon tartar which is served in black cones and the oysters which comes with four different toppings. Luckily we managed to have dinner there two times during our stay and all of the dishes were great, you can tell that quality of the ingredients are a top priority by just looking inside at the frozen fish display. You can also see when the chefs are preparing your food. The dishes we tried were the oysters, lax tartar, ceviche, carpaccio, fried cod in tempura, salmon with quinoa and spaghetti with salmon. The staff is really friendly and attentive, and great at recommending which wine that goes best with your food. The waitress even remembered our previous order from a few days before including which wine we had with it. The place is not that big but cosy and has three tables outside which is lovely for a late summer night dinner. Didn’t see any other tourist but it seemed really popular with the locals and from what we could figure out they also do home delivery.More

We went here twice on our 4 day trip to Athens, and it was the best 2 meals we had. A bit on the pricey end, but you get way more than you pay for! Well balanced and interesting dishes, especially the appetizers, considerate and...thoughtful staff. Only negativ is the atmosphere with tables placed at the pavement, which is not very nice.More

Even though we came from vacations on an island, where the fish is supposed to be at it's best, I can say with certainty that the flavors and the freshness I tried in this restaurant was miles better. As an artist myself I can guarantee...a very pleasant atmosphere, background music and great aura.More

We have chosen a fish from the counter. The waitress said it was served with vegetables. These were also very good. When we asked to serve the dish also with potatoes, rice, pasta, ... she said this is only possible for other dishes. She proposed...potato chips instead, we agreed, but this was a stupid combination. The fish, the vegetables (and the pasta the girl-friend have eaten) were excellent.More

Prices: reasonable Food: delicious fish BUT if you order fish from the counter you only get vegetables with it. No pasta, french fries or rice. Location: feels cheap, not much roam. Serving: friendly but they wouldnt serve us anything else with the fish except of...the dirty chips.More
