Margaro – The tastiest shrimps in Athens

Margaro fish restaurant is one of the most important constant values of Piraeus gastronomy. It has been located in the same place for years on end – next to the Naval Academy.

Forget gastronomic excesses! No octopus here, not even french fries. At Margaro you can taste the tastiest shrimps in all of Athens. THE TASTIEST! Apart from that, you can only order Greek salad and “koutsomoures” – a kind of fish. Simplicity can be really delicious sometimes.

Margaro is located close to the sea, and is ideal for a Sunday walk! Be patient – as you have to wait a bit in order to find a place to sit as it always overcrowded!

A useful tip: if you want to use a means of transportation, other than a taxi, take the train until Piraeus station and you can find the bus 904 outside. Ask the driver to tell you where to stop for Naval Academy (“sxoli naftikon dokimon”) and go for it!
