This was our first visit to a restaurant in Drosia, we didn't book it and it wasn't recommended, we just picked it at random. We we're disappointed, it proved to be an excellent fish restaurant with some fine dining. We did not choose one of the fixed price menus. The first treat was to choose our own fish from the...

Delicious salad, good wine, fresh fish, outstanding service. No wait, no reservation. It was a wonderful meal, and always fresh salad and fresh fish, well-prepared with loukoumades that follow.

We were warmly greeted by the members of staff, and were taken to our table. The most important part of fish tavern is the fish itself. Here, Koursaros comes no where short of excellent! The fish was fresh and cooked to perfection. Furthermore, the shrimp pasta was one of the best I have ever had, since the shrimps were properly... More

Very beautiful and very fresh fish. Nice seeting outside and inside. You can go to the kitchen and pick the fishes you like fresh from the ice. Wines are good as well

Koursaros is one of the few seafood restaurants that remain open in the Athens metropolitan area. They fill the gap between a tavern and a gourmet restaurant and they are doing a very good job at it. They have reasonable prices and the fish is fresh. More interesting to me is their appetizers' selection, which shows that they care about... More

Been there with family and friends. The fish served was average to say the least. Little shrimps dish was very nice and the "karavides" also. Wouldn't go there again, the place was once known for its quality fish but not anymore. Very pricey for what it is, look elsewhere

We ordered sea buss carpacio ( very small portion), salmon tartar (the fish sauce was covering any other teste) , crab ( from a small crab not so tasty) ,fried lagostino tales (best plate) big fish slightly overcooked , decent white wine (house wine). To summarize I can say that there is no need to pay another visit .

A great restaurant with a good variety is sea food and fresh fish. We can taste the sea flavor in re grill fish they serve. I strongly recommend the salad as a starter, it is a intense flavor with re correct vegetables and the proper olive oil. Just to finish, don't leave the place without try the local liquors. Just...

Yes there is another one in Mykonos, but this one is close to Athens, do not mix it. This one is in Marathons 2 street. It's a very good fish restaurant. I've been here during the lunch time and it was veeeeery nice.
