Fodor's Expert Review Papadakis
Picture this: it's twilight and you're sitting under bitter-orange trees at one of Athens's best fish restaurants, in the heart of Kolonaki, overlooking the Parthenon as you sip a perfectly chilled glass of wine and wait for your order of succulent seafood to arrive. There's muted conversation at the gleaming white-tableclothed tables around you, where opinion makers, theater directors, and loyal customers relax. You may start with a bowl of thick and flavorsome kakavia fish soup that the elegant and attentive waitress pours out of a large silver teapot, and then progress to steamed mussels and chili-fried shrimps with feta, before digging into a beautifully baked fish like white grouper with summer truffles. Indoors, the cool in summer and cozy in winter interiors have walls covered by giant, colorful paintings and a silver wall sculpture of fish.
