This restaurant - taverna is very cool. Fast service and amazing fried shrimps. They have only salad with feta cheese except of the fish (not always) and shrimps as I already said. Not cheap but it is worth a visit.

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.
