Fodor's Expert Review Garbi

$$$ Vouliagmeni Seafood

This esteemed seafood restaurant first opened here in 1924, and it's aged well. Athenians flock year-round to share a seafood platter and bottle of white wine or feast on tongue fillets stuffed with fresh shrimp, or an appetizer of scorpion-fish croquettes. There's meat on the menu, too, but most opt for the fresh grilled fish that is brought daily from Kalimnos, Patmos, and the Leros islands. Oysters and prawns are also a specialty. But it's not just the food that attracts locals to this family-run restaurant: there are also elegant wood-beamed ceilings (the ceiling is partly retractable, so on a good night you can dine under the stars) and a superb view of the coast, all just 35 minutes' drive from downtown Athens. Reservations are essential during weekends.
