- After 10 years of serving happy clients on the island of Paros, famed fish taverna Papadakis closed its doors only to open them in 2005 to the same faithful clients in the chic Kolonaki neighborhood of Athens. Tables have rarely been empty. Chef-owner Argyro Barbarigou, a Paros native, and chef George Kostas prepare innovative Greek dishes using fresh ingredients with a twist. The octopus simmered in a honey-wine sauce is a favorite along with the Papadakis salad and a number of the seafood-based risotto dishes. They have a good wine list and even make their own ice cream. A hit is the halva (sesame and honey) ice cream. Order the dessert first! Reservations recommended.
