I simply love their fried shrimps. And their greek salad. So simple and yet so delicious. Yes, it's far from Athens' center, but it would be a pity not to go. I've impressed a Greek friend by taking her to this place.

Limited selection of menu; only red mullets, shrimps and greek salad. NO french fries. Very tasty. Good quality ingredients. Can be quite busy on weekends. Definitely pay a visit.

This place serves all kind of fried fishes and shrimps. Simple but pretty effective. It's also a big plus that the owner and the staffs are extremely friendly :) He took us to the kitchen and show us all the fresh ingredients they have. I especially like the fried shrimp, very crunchy and tasty.

Well not much to say, my title covers it all. One of the oldest places in Piraeus. I live near by the place (very near in fact). I've been there numerous times and every time seems like the first. Simple delicacies that accompany great retsina wine... chips,shrimps and if you're lucky red mullets... That's Greece over here.. Visit it.. you... More

Its far from central Athens its in pereas which is half an hour drive but its worth the trip. You only get one choice of fish but it's always fresh and tasty. You dont have a variety of dishes as they believe that you have to eat your dish and not the dipes. I cant remember if there is even... More

The food is simple here in the heart of Pireaus. Simply delicious! Fresh red mullet, prawns, chips and the mandatory Greek salad just don't get any better. This part of Pireaus is far removed from the normal hustle and bustle of the port and city. You might even think you are on an island given the decor and the peacefulness... More

It s a very special restaurant because you can have only shrimps and Greek salad. Sometimes they serve fish. Very crowded place that especially at weekends you wait to find a free table. It s very clean and stuff is very professional. Don't miss it.
