Psaromezedes (“fish mezes”) offers some of the best fish I’ve had in Athens. Marilena and I chose this restaurant to take out our parents for dinner a few days before we got married. None of us had ever been there and we were just looking for a decent place to have good fish and seafood without breaking the bank. What we got was way more than what we had bargained for.
I’ll try to list what we ordered that day: a big, 1.2 kg sea bream – a tsipoura (pictured), octopus in vinegar, fresh baked squid, a dish of small fry (I don’t remember what kind), two dishes of horta (greens), two dishes of French fries, a dish of fava, a small bottle of ouzo and three half-liter bottles of white house wine.
The total amounted to less than 22€ per person and we were more than satisfied with all of our choices – everything was very tasty and the fish was as fresh as advertised.
The cherry on top, to put it lightly, was the dessert. What a way to finish a perfect meal – and on the house, as it should be. The staff was also very polite, helpful and the right amount of informal.
This restaurant is on the main commercial street of Moschato, so you can very easily get there by metro. Moschato is just two stations away from Piraeus, so a visit to Psaromezedes could easily be coupled with a metro ride to, or from, Greece’s main port.
