The restaurant is located 30 mins outside of Athens, on a beautiful seafront in Piraeus. It is run by a famous celebrity chef Lefteris Lazarou and serves fresh seafood dishes. It was awarded Michelin star in 2002 and maintained it ever since. We opted for Chef's recommendation menu and we simply loved it. Fish, clams, prawns risotto, selection of desserts... More

I stumbled upon this place due to ferry strike for the last four days. It's a high end place with nice views, great service and most importantly fresh seafood (taste and presentation are both very pleasant). I ordered a seafood course meal and every fish was excellent.

There is nothing wrong with this restaurant. It was just that it did not meet my expectations at all. There was nothing wrong with the food, the service or location, but there was nothing extraordinaire with it either. And the toilet facilities were horrible. Dirty toilets were you could not close the doors... not what I expected. We went to... More

We were in Piraeus for 2 days on a cruise and opted to go to lunch at Varoulko on day 2 instead of going into Athens. We were not disappointed. The restaurant is in a great area by the sea so plenty to walk around and see and the food is amazing. We chose the set menu and every single... More

Every dish was better and better... What a subtle and well balanced ceviche, the best I have ever tried out of South America. And the Dorado... Ohhh God! I think I will always remember that crunchy sensation in my mouth, my tongue, followed by that unique texture of a fish like Dorado. I am sure I have never tried such... More

Dinner was excellent. Particularly enjoyed the delicious filet psariou appetizer, and a fresher than fresh fish. The wfact nes were excellent and the young wine mailer was particularly well-informed on our choices to a depth that included climate, picking season, regions, etc. impressive. Both wines, a Mavrotragano and a sigalas cavalieros were excellent. The view, the warm breeze, it was... More

Our cruise stopped in Athens in the day of a special occasion for us... Heard about Varoulko and decided it was the place to celebrate it. Yes it is expensive, but the food is so good.
