I have visited Varoulko Seaside more times than I can remember. Last Thursday though, I was just walking around the area and, totally unexpectedly, I was starving… Hence, Varoulko was a perfect option!
In an unique location with unforgettable view, the Varoulko Seaside in Mikrolimano stays faithful to its gastronomic history and philosophy.
Additionally, the team of this award-winning restaurant, Lefteris Lazarou and Yannis Parikos, recommend a new menu with great flavors that praise the treasures of the sea. They have managed to introduce the public to less known and previously neglected types of fish. To sum up, many of their dishes have become very successful and are still recognized as all time classics.
Open from noon, it welcomes its guests in a very friendly atmosphere. Unique flavors, excellent raw materials and emphasis on Greek products are the main characteristics of their dishes worth the Michelin star the restaurant keeps for almost 15 years.
It was in 1987 when Varoulko Seaside was born in Piraeus.
When the sun embraces every corner of the restaurant, one can enjoy a variety of eight appetizers. Suggestions often vary, because the daily renewal of raw materials bring new inspirations and challenges to the chefs. No doubt though, the friendly personnel is always there to suggest dishes that suit your mood.
For your everyday lunch break, you may enjoy dishes such as the grilled lettuce and ouzo jellies, or the grilled calamari with spread. The mango and shrimp risotto is spectacular! Their Greek spirits will provide you with the perfect pairing. If you prefer wine there is also a great wine list which includes a variety of Greek labels and wines by the glass at affordable prices. Should you opt for the fine dining experience? You may try exciting dishes such as the grilled cuttlefish with caramelized lentils and orange sauce or the fish patties with a sweet and sour pepper sauce.
The restaurant is easily accessible from the center of Athens. Visit Varoulko Seaside and let them be your guides into an amazing seafood experience.
