Reviews on Greek food in Sounio, Attica, Greece. Sunset is the best time to arrive at the 5th-century-B.C. Temple of the mythical sea God Poseidon. Perched on cliffs above Cape Sounio, the temple ruins, surrounded on three sides by sea, have stunning views out over the Aegean. It was mentioned in Homer's epic poem, The Odyssey. More recently, English Romantic poet Lord Byron visited this atmospheric spot in 1811 and inscribed his name at the base of one of the temple's Doric columns.

This place is on a fairly quiet pedestrian street in central Lavrion. It features all the Greek fish taverna fare, without flashy innovative additions. The quality of the food was good, as was the service. Surprisingly, the restaurant-name fish (atherina - smelt) was not on the menu.

Stopped for a quick bite enroute to temple of Poseidon. Wonder selection of tasty meat on stick... chicken, pork, veal, lamb, sausage... and all were excellent. Great food and great value!

I have eaten in this restaurant twice. Food is really good and the atmosphere is very relaxed. Too relaxed sometimes :) at least once we had to wait a while for the food but it is worth and on the positive side, when you have finished you can stay and chat nobody bothers you to leave the table or else. So overall a very good experience. But I would not advise this restaurant if you are in a hurry :)

We went to this restaurant after having visited the Poseidon temple in Cape Sounio.After having seen the menu, since there were too many options, I asked the owner to suggest something... he told me: follow me!He brought me to the kitchen and showed me a sea bass and suggested to have it grilled!We followed the suggestion and we had some salad and other vegetables, including fried zucchine and eggplants as side dish.Everything was very delicious and the man was very kind with us.At the end they also offered the dessert.

Enjoyed a hot Greek coffee prior to walking up to the Temple of Poseidon. It was a very wind and cold day, so the coffee and protection from the elements were much appreciated.

Discovered Artemis on the very first day of our stay in Kato Sounio and ended up having lunch & dinner here every single day of our holiday. The food is fresh, atmosphere very relaxed, music is on point and the people..the people are just amazing. Everyone here has been nothing but friendly and courteous, helping us with with information, travelling around and more. These guys give a whole new meaning to Greek hospitality.

Our first visit was in the deli at the entrance of the restaurant. A deli full of very interesting products from several places and producers in Greece. As we had promised to ourselves, we returned to this cozy restaurant to be served, by warm people, gourmet dishes in reasonable prices. We will certainly go back soon.ÎÏ ÏÎ±ÏÎ¹ÏÏÎ¿ÏÎ¼Îµ ÏÎ¿Î»Ï ÏÏÎ¿ÏÏÎ±Î¸Î¿ÏÎ¼Îµ Î³Î¹Î± ÏÎ¿ ÎºÎ±Î»ÏÏÎµÏÎ¿ ÏÏÎ·Ï Î³ÎµÏÏÎ·Ï Î¼Îµ Î±Î³Î½Î¬ ÎºÎ±Î¹ ÏÎµÎ¹ÏÎ¿ÏÎ¿Î¯Î·ÏÎ± Ï Î»Î¹ÎºÎ¬ ÏÏÎ¿ÏÏÎ±ÏÎµÎ¶Î¹ ÏÎ±Ï Î³Î¹Î± Î¼ÎµÎ³Î±Î»ÏÏÎµÏÎ· ÏÎ¿Î¹ÎºÎ¹Î»Î¯Î± ÎºÎ±Î¹ ÎµÏ ÏÎ±ÏÎ¯ÏÏÎ·ÏÎ·,Î³Î¹Î± ÎµÎ¼Î¬Ï ÏÎ±Ï Î²Î»ÎÏÎ¿Ï Î¼Îµ ÏÎ¹Î»Î¿Î¾ÎµÎ½Î¿Ï Î¼ÎµÎ½Î¿Ï Ï ÎºÎ±Î¹ ÏÏÎ¹ ÏÎ±Î½ ÏÎµÎ»Î¬ÏÎµÏ Î³Î¹Î± ÏÎ·Î½ ÎºÎ±Î»ÏÏÎµÏÎ· ÎµÎ¾Ï ÏÎ·ÏÎÏÎ·ÏÎ· ÏÎ±Ï."Î¦ÎÎÎÎÎ Î ÎÎ¡ÎÎÎÎ£ÎÎÎÎÎ Î¦ÎÎÎÎ¤ÎÎ ÎÎÎÎÎ©Î"

almost 70 km from Athens centre- approachable either through Laurium (Attiki Odhos) or the coast driveway, a little gem. Actually not a little but a multi chamber eatery with a slightly pernicious drive to and parking to go with it. It is among the best in the secluded winding in coast Laurium-Sounion road. Laurium offers a lot in a different character. This location combines wilderness (a leafy villa across) overlooking in a sliver the sea as well a the different eating verandahs. The food is fresh, well prepared, not over-whatever (e.g. overbuild villa or badly fired calamarakia). Exquisite in that. Fine beer selection. Good service. Owner managed and a bit of a place where you may meet someone you know. Despite the seclusive impression it is not an inconspicuously located unit where you will not meet someone you know.

Marida is easy to find, located right next to the Athens-Sounio road. The sea is a bit far away, but from our table we had at least a partial view to the distant Mediterranean and were conveniently located so that the traffic did not disturb us. The restaurant was full of mostly Greek customers and unfourtunately we had to wait a bit particularly for the souvlakis. The catch of the day was for customers to see next to the kitchen, where we were invited to take a look and make our selection.The Greek salad was served with an ample amount of feta and zucchinis proved to be really crispy and nice, but the souvlakis were a bit tough. As for fish, we really enjoyed the seabass, grilled to be perfectly juicy. The red mullets were not that much to our taste, but there was nothing wrong with them, itâs just a matter of taste. One good thing with seabass is, that it was clearly less expensive than other fish, presumably because it was not wild, but cultured. We could see a facility for this when driving to Sounio. Coming from Finland, where trout is cultured customarily, this was not a problem for us and we did very much enjoy the seabass.
