Go here. It's great. The best taramusalta we had in all of Athens. Excelled squid and sardines. I think they are remodeling their old place but have opened up their menu at the adjacent Butcher Shop. It's a two minute walk from the Gazi metro station.

We were in Athens just for 1 day, and a friend recommended Sardelles! This is just awesome! The freshest fish I have ever had in Athens. The sardines were good, but the grilled octopus was just extraordinary! But do not miss their fava and the politiki salad. On top of that the service was perfect. Do not miss it.

During our visit, in early April 2013, Sardelles was still functioning from the next door restaurant (Butcher shop). I have been coming to Sardelles for many years and even in the current situation I think it's worth it. We went during the day and had lunch menu of grilled sardines and kalamari and as appetiser smoked herring. All was a tiny bit salty but otherwise very tasty.

I preferred the atmosphere of original Sardelles with its light island inspired decor but butcher shop is good looking place as well.

We were told by a very good Swiss cook, that Sardelles has the only very fresh fish of Athens. And so it is.We were there several times and what we ate was always of best quality, although not cheep, but fish is nowhere cheep any more in Greece.The service is excellent , the decor very modern and stylish, and you get even a small pot of Basilikum as a gift. We have taken our guests several times there and they were always pleased.

We went to this restaurant and found out that it's in renovation (march 2013) but the closer Butcher Shop is handling also the clients of the Sardelles. We ate verybadly: there was only a limited selection of available fish dishes and the ones we choose were very small and salty! We must say anyway that when we complained with the main waitor he apologizes and offered some cakes and liquors. For the moment we think it's not worth to go there for eating fish unitil Sardelles will open again.
