The restaurant looks like the type for tourists and normally I wouldn't go for these ones without reading reviews. But this restaurant turned to be much better and we went back for our last meal in Greece. I especially liked the fish soup. And my fiancé liked the codfish. The restaurant also gave us some complementary pudding.

We came across Kastella by chance and had a superb experience.

It’s superbly located overlooking the sea and the fort and attracted us in with a superb well priced menu.

We were not disappointed by the food or the excellent value although one of the highlights was the front of house staff. They clearly loved their job, interacted superbly with us and has a few tricks up their sleeve to make our lunch a really fun experience.

Highly recommended.

This is a fun restaurant located by the water west of the fort. We greatly enjoyed the view and the food, but the differentiator from all the other great Greek restaurants was the genuine sense of fun and enjoyment of our hosts. It's hard not to feel like another cog in an enormous tourist wheel in Europe at this time of year, but you walk out of here not only feeling sated but almost special.

We read that this restaurant is highly rated, so we tried it in our last night before boarding the ferry back to Athens. So glad we did! The vine leaves were tasty and the house wine inexpensive and good. I had the grilled octopus that was so flavorful. My wife had the seafood spaghetti. Delicious but such a large portion I had to help. The complimentary desert and ouzo was a nice touch, too.
