Had dinner at this restaurant and the overall experience was great. Superb seafood, especially the octopus. However, the foods were out a little bit fast and it seems like they are rushing you to finish your meal fast so that they can turn the table around.

The owner/chef of Varoulko likes relocating every ten years. This latest venue is certainly an improvement on the previous one and very pleasant. The quality of the food and service are, as always, consistently good. A great combination of traditional and more imaginative meals on the menu - the sourcing and quality of the fish and seafood are impecable. Experienced... More

Great location and really great food. Mr. lazarou, the Chef, is always innovative in his proposals and the food is excellent. The awards on the wall give away the fact that this is not your average upscale restaurant. The location next to the marina is of course fantastic. One unique point is that you don't order, but the Chef proposes... More

We had chef's choice but even tho the owner was there and stopped by many tables around us, we were not privliged enough to rate a visit. Our food was wonderful, but it was almost like we had been forgotten. I love good food, but when spending $150 euros, I do like to feel appreciated- which did not happen tonight.... More

This was my first time in this place and I had great expectations post the old Varoulko at Pireos street. The ambience, atmosphere is amazing as this is situated on top of the sea overlooking the marina with sailing boats. The service is more than attentive and you feel very welcome the moment you step into this place. We visited... More

The food here is good and certainly different to the average Greek taverna or any tourist place in Plaka. However, if you go expecting Michelin star level food, you will be disappointed. Despite the interesting flavour combinations promised that (mostly) works, the food fails to "wow" despite the kitchen clearly having more finesse than average in Athens. Desserts were the... More

Great menu, not your typical taverna food, a little upscale. We loved the appetizers and the ability to share a large fish at a reasonable price.
