“Fresh and cheap see food”
Reviewed July 1, 2014

If you want to eat really fresh fish and prawns and don't spend a fortune, this is the place. You can order only prawns, Greek salad and fish of the day, whatever exists! It's only one choice of fish but you can rest assure that it will be fresh.

I have been there many times during the years. It's all time classic, for Greek people and a very good kept secret from tourists. The area is not touristic at all, is a residence area. The restaurant is located just in front of the Greek military navy academy!

“Margaro”
Reviewed March 11, 2014

Classic Greek taverna, located just outside a navy school. Cheap but excellent food, very friendly people. They will not try to sell you, they have what they have and that's all. Quality and value for money. Just Lovely especially in Summer.

“Very good , once again”
Reviewed November 30, 2013 via mobile

We have been going to this place for about four years since a neighbor
suggested it . Very limited menu, Shrimps , Red Mullets Fried and served hot without much ado, and Greek salad is about it .

Simple and consistent. Plus their bread is delicious and the after dinner
comped desert, is a nice touch.

Very clean open kitchen. good service but not fawning .

“Have people gone mental??”
Reviewed August 11, 2013

A modest plate of fried shrimps and another one with three red mullets. Thats it. All fried with no mercy with the oil driping down my throat. The feeling was not pleasant, im sure you can imagine. That and a small bottle of beer was the reason for a bill that had a total sum of 35 euros. Shrimps, three mullets and a salad. So beyond the obvious comment about the quality and the prices id like to say something about masive acceptance!! I dont know how and i dont really care why so many people speak with so much enthusiasm about that place but i feel that common sence has no place to all that flattery. Everybody seems to be seeking a really graphic place with some pinch of imagination close to a childhood warm feeling of acceptance. Margaro sounds like the aunt we wound visit and she would feed us like there is no tommorow and pet us in the head like aunts do. It is really really sad that this is not the case.....
