Great traditional Greek food – but you have to be patient: Palia Taverna tou Psarra (14. September 2017)

| December 26, 2017 | 0 Comments

The Palia Taverna tou Psarra is located in a rather touristic area of Athens but still worth visiting. If you know you’re going here, call before and book a table on the roof top terrace. The view must be even more amazing and right onto the Acropolis. However, as we had not reserved beforehand, we were seated in the more general area where you still have a nice view.

Once seated you have to be a bit patient – at first, it seemed, no-one was responsible for our table which led to us waiting like 10 minutes for the menu to be brought. But finally the waitress showed up and from then on, actually did a good job. I went for the “Dolmades (stuffed wine leaves with rice and minced meat with egg-lemon sauce)” (EUR 9.00) which was overall quite tasty – I especially liked the thick lemon egg sauce.

As a second dish, I went for the “fried anchovies” (EUR 7.50). The portion was huge. That is definitely something to share between at least three people – and then on the other hand, it would be lovely to have some kind of dip or more lemon so the fried anchovies wouldn’t be that dry (which they became after having had like 5-6 of them). Other than that, lovely.

Finally, I had the idea to have the “eggplant au gratin with seafood” (EUR 14.50) as a main course. And I must say that it was absolutely delicious! One of these dishes you eat when you are looking for comfort food – and in combination with the seafood (which was mainly prawns), it made a great dish. But it was definitely way too much in combination with what I’ve had before.

As mentioned, the view is quite lovely – and imagine how it is if you are on the terrace (of which you can see a small part in the picture). All in all, the place is also in that sense amazing as it is incredibly cheap for what you get.

We were three people and we had ordered like 8 dishes and drank some beers and water – and ended up paying like EUR 135.00 including tip. And the food was absolutely great! So, if you’re in Athens, this is definitely a “can do” and a “must do”.
