“A classic value for over 30 years”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 25, 2012

You want to eat fish ? You dont want to be taken for a ride ? Try diasimos. Its a no frills taverna with just fish. Excellent service, good honest quality fish, as he will present a frozen fish as a frozen fish and a fresh as a fresh ( you make your pick) . I have been a regualr patron for over 30 years , as i find it the best value for money fish taverna in Athens.

“authentic fish taverna with excellent food and very reasonable prices!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 4, 2011

This is our favourite fish taverna in and around Athens. It is a taverna, so nothing fancy, but it is the best place for basic, authentic, well-cooked fish! (Better than anything in Mikrolimano for sure!) We have been coming here for years and also like to take friends and family when they are visiting Greece. Highly recommended!

“Plenty of better choises down the road.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 1, 2010

The first thing to get you suspicious is that there's always some guy hired from the restaurant who's job is to wave to passing by cars and motos in order to make them come round and dinner there. That alone is not a fair way to get customers. But let's move on. Prices are not touching the sky, ok, but quality ain't either. Personel could be more polite too. I can't say i'm pleased from how clean the place is. The only reason, in my opinion that people go and have dinner there, is that it's eye catching and quite big a place for a tavern. It's only irony that "Diasimos" actually means "Famous" in greek.
Bottomline, avoid Diasimos, there's plenty of better choises down the road.

This is one of our neighbourhood tavernes. One night we ordered a grilled squid from fresh fish counter. I am pretty sure they served much smaller squid than the one we chose and we ended up in paying in 17 euros for a small squid, as we could not prove they cheated. We know they thought we were tourists (as the waiter said so). So, if you are not local or you do not look like local, avoid this place.
