Seafood Restaurants on the Sea

Seafood Restaurants on the Sea, Athens, Greece (B)

The small port known as Microlimano is known for its expensive fish restaurants. In fact there is a popular scam going on where a taxi driver takes you to one of these restaurants and you end up paying a fortune and he makes a hefty commission. Remember that in Greece some sea food is very expensive and in many restaurants that is the fish they push. If you do want to go to Microlimano, since it is a pleasant place where you can have a fish meal surrounded by fishing boats, the Fish Taverna Botsaris is one that was not over-priced and the food was good. And according to the business card I got from them "the Chef is the Captain himself". Also Capt John's, Vaggelis and Irini's had inexpensive fish. If you do go to one of these places and order fish try to be present during the fish weighing ceremony. A half kilo of barbouni was a lot smaller in Microlimano than it was in Anavissos. But really a more sensible thing to do is go to the area of Periaki which is where the Greeks go to get good seafood. Try Diasimos which is one of the most popular and one of the best. But there are many along the coast and the area is much more open to the sea than Microlimino where you can't even see the sea until you sit down in one of the restaurants.
