Seafood Binging in Central Athens!

Updated: Mar 29, 2021

Marios (Head Waiter ) showing us the Catch of the Day!

If seafood binging is high on your agenda you might want to check out the Psarochori restaurant . . . . one of my favorite places in Athens for eating some of our ocean’s gifts!

Simple but comfy decor

The restaurant’s winning combination is a relaxed, comfortable and unpretentious environment together with its simple & delicious food, based on product driven cooking that keeps patrons, including me, coming back for more.

Getting ready to serve the fish

Fresh fish is always on offer and cooked pretty much any way you want. I highly recommend, the salt baked whole fish (your budget allowing), served with fresh veggies and latholemono (lemon/oil dressing), which is truly awesome.

Apart from Marios' (head waiter’s) entertaining service presentation, the salt crust (a mixture of coarse sea salt and egg whites) ensures the fish is cooked evenly and gently without added cooking oils . . . giving superb results and well-seasoned moist fish that I’m sure will tickle your taste buds!

The catch of the day cooked in a salt crust

If the catch of the day is not for you . . . don't worry! The menu offers a variety of flavorful options and starters as well as several daily specials with some innovative twists.

The fish soup is about the best I’ve had, here in Athens, and if you like pulses make sure to try the delicious and nutritious three bean salad topped with yogurt dressed up with freshly chopped dill and drops of extra virgin olive oil . . . or the chickpea salad with pesto, sun-dried tomatoes and fresh cheese (when available).

To be totally honest, everything I’ve tasted in this restaurant has been well cooked and prepared by Chef Dina and her kitchen team whose strength lies in a well organised kitchen and what I call “light touch cooking” that allows their classic seafood and other inspired creations to shine!

Homemade lemon sherbet

For the finale you will be offered really tasty homemade lemon sherbet but if you get a chance, make sure to try the house specialty; a scrumptious tasting, flaky version of the traditional Greek galaktobouriko (milk pie) served with a scoop of Ice-cream . . . which I promise you is another true sweet delight!

I hope the photos included in this post . . . are worth a lot more than a thousand words . . . and will tempt some of you to visit Psarochori . . . the fish village (in English).
