i was trying to find one more place in Athens that values the sea and what it has to offer. and yeah i found it! it is one of these neighborhood friendly places with its yard and trees and wooden chairs. “thalassinos” (which in Greek means someone who lives or was raised near the sea) restaurant is more than twenty years old yet the creations it offers always manage to stay fresh. imagine tasting the sea through a fresh fish salad, a colorful lobster spaghetti, some heavenly crayfishes, some savory steamed mussels, some golden crispy red mullets and crayfish bites. the pictures that follow will help you get the idea. you can also try some other interesting plates like the small garlic flavored pita breads with shrimps or fish soup. of course do not even think of leaving without tasting the freshly baked bread offered there. as always i would suggest sitting outdoors under a tree of your choice.
so go my friends, let the sea breeze reach you even though you will be far away from the shore.
“thalassinos” 32 Lisikratous street, Kallithea, Athens, Greece, tel. +30 210 9404518
