We randomly ended up taking part in the pub quiz next door but needed some food. I had a scout on Trip Advisor and this place had good reviews so we decided to order from here, they served us at the pub next door. The food is just functional. I had the fish burger and my fella had the chicken... More

We took a take out order from here and the food turned out to be very good. Of course its a bit greasy as it is supposed to be, but the taste and the portion sizes were very good. Particularly the prawn and chips were particularly good. They stated that there is no animal fat in their frying oil -... More

We had a simple salad , fish in batter for my husband and grilled prawns and chips... More

Being Italian, when I go abroad I like eating fish and chips because it is something not so common in Italy, even if it is a simple dish. In this place I tasted the real fish and chips, well prepared and served. The place is really simple. Staff is very kind. Affordable price. Not the typical greek food but recommended... More

We have been there once. Seafoods were fresh. Kalamari, fish, prawn, patetos, salad, beer etc. For a rich fed up, we paid very reasonable price.

Thank Aykon

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.
