“Bravo !!”
Reviewed March 5, 2013

Wow, Visited Margaro on Sunday 3rd March 2013 with 5 friends. It was my first vist but i was blown away by the quality of their fish. The menu is limited (Red mullet, jumbo prawns, greek salad and bread). The mullet and prawns come one way only - deep fried but they are delicious. They practically melt in your mouth. The salad was fresh and refreshing and their bread freshly baked and absolutely yummy.
We had 2 kilos of mullet and 1 kilo of prawns, 2-3 salads and load of bread. We also have a mixture of wine and beers and the bill came to around the 170euro mark. Not the cheapest meal we had but it was certainly the best and whenever in Piraeus again I will go.

“Hidden gem”
Reviewed November 7, 2012

What can i say... I have been a loyal and happy customer of Margaro since 1994. Its not a restaurant its a fish institution ! A cult fish taverna, hidden in the suburbs of Piraeus , serving just 3 dishes (huge greek salads, fried prawns or langoustines, and fried red mullets) since the beginning of time. Always fresh and fried to perfection. Its family run and the guys who have it are originally from Mykonos and great fun too. Unmissable.

“A classic restaurant”
Reviewed September 14, 2012

It has only 4 things: bread, greek salad, fried shrimps & fried small fishes (always only fresh)
But it's the best restaurant you could go!
Peaceful, with helpful staff & excellent food!
Enjoy your ouzo & use your bare hands to taste the shrimps!!!
