Laurium or Lavrio or Lavrion (Greek: Λαύριο; Ancient Greek: Λαύριον; before early 11th century BC: Θορικός Thorikos; from Middle Ages until 1908: Εργαστήρια - Ergastiria) is a town in southeastern part of Attica, Greece. It is the seat of the municipality of Lavreotiki. Laurium was famous in Classical antiquity for its silver mines, which was one of the chief sources of revenue of the Athenian state. The metallic silver was mainly used for coinage. The Archaeological Museum of Lavrion shows much of the story of these mines.

Right in the middle of the cental fish market of Lavrion, a wonderful place in its own right, this ouzo-and-meze place attracts quite a crowd, especially during weekends. Unsurprisingly, it specializes in fish and seafood meze. The menu is rather limited and all fish/seafood is fried. This is a pity, as some charcoal-grilled octopus or sardines would really be in order at a place like this. Certainly worth a visit, but in need of menu expansion.

I was invited to this restaurant by friends for a birthday celebration. It is beautifully located in the pedestrian area of Lavrio. The food was just excellent; home made Greek cuisine, great variety of food, either seafood or meat, and lots of traditional dishes. I will definitely visit this restaurant again. Now I understand why this place is always full.

We went there Saturday evening and they were out if stock on most of the ice creams. They had just a few simple flavors. And it was nothing sooo amazing as most of the reviews claims.

Pezodomos is a restaurant with Greek & Mediterranean cuisine. Meat and seafood variety of plates. Located behind the fish market of Lavrio with tables also out in the courtyyard in the beautiful pedestrian zone.
We went here to taste some sea food. grilled sardines were the best, you have to try also the fried feta - excellent taste!! We’ve paid 40€ for 4 dishes and two coffees. The waitress was extremely polite and friendly!

If you're a meat lover you definitely have to try this place. Excellent quality, delicious dishes and friendly service at a traditional tavern. We ordered a salad (politiki), pork with mustard, grilled cheese (Mastello), fried sun dried tomatoes and fried potatoes as starters while our main courses were the "ladokolla" (it's their specialty, pork baked in the oven), steaks and burgers. Everything was so tasty and we were surprised by the quantity! Not to mention that prices are sooo low! We really had a great meal and we'll definitely come back. It's worth the 5-10 minute walk from the harbor.

The remodeled old bus station of Lavrio is now another fish and seafood restaurant, with ample outdoors Seating space. Competition among fish tavenas is intense in Lavrio, and this one managed to impress during its first months of operation. Went there twice and particularly savored the steamed mussels (really succulent) and the fried whitebait. On the contrary, the cuttlefish casserole was rather thin and watery. Service was good and the surroundings fairly pleasant.

Quite hard to find as the IOS app shows wrong location. Definitely worth looking for it! Very good quality, unpretentious Greek food at great prices. The "Greek salad" is totally wonderful. Good for children too :)Thank you very much for the comment! We will be glad to see you again!!! The location on the map has been corrected.
