We visited the place for the first time during our stay to athens! We wanted a traditional and affordable fish tavern! The hotel suggested us "to ouzeri tou laki". It lies downtown in Victoria's square. Everything we ate was very delicious. Fresh fish, squid, shrimps,...More

This restaurant is some distance away from the main tourist areas of Athens. The advantage is that you then get a much more authentic local atmosphere than in most places closer to the centre. They specialise in fish dishes, and the fish can be picked...More

This cozy local gem quickly became our favorite restaurant in Greece. The owners graciously welcomed us nightly and cooked delicious family-style seafood meals with fresh-caught delicacies. Our family loved trying the many different types of fish from sardines to squid and cuttlefish. It is well...More

Booked a table on a Friday at 6.00 via phone for 9.00 that evening, when we arrived it was closed. Nobody answered the phone when I called back so I never got an explanation. Lousy way to treat people.More

This restaurant is hidden away behind Victoria Square, but well worth finding. The fish is as fresh as you can get - everything served is in season. It's a family run place. Friendly and relaxed. They'll make a dish as you like - e.g. spicy...More
