Varoulko

80 Piraeus
Athens , Greece http://www.varoulko.gr/
30 210 522-8400

Varoulko's reputation as one of the best seafood restaurants in Greece stems from the creativity of chef-owner Lefteris Lazarou, who changes his menu regularly based on handpicked ingredients from local markets. Depending on the day, the menu might include smoked eel with basil pesto, followed by red snapper with black truffle and aubergine mousse. Also inspired by the sea, the dining room is designed with warm oak accents, blue painted glass, and dark blue curtains framing tall windows. During warmer months, however, the rooftop terrace is often in higher demand thanks to expansive nighttime views of the illuminated Acropolis.
