Michelin Star seafood at the marina
Sample the delectable seafood creations of Lefteris Lazarou, the first Greek chef to receive a Michelin Star, with views to match over Mikrolimano Marina at his waterfront restaurant in Athens.
One of the best known chefs in Greece, Lefteris Lazarou established Varoulko in Piraeus, more than 30 years ago, before moving to Mikrolimano Marina in 2004. He was awarded his first Michelin Star in 2002, and his creative take on traditional Greek seafood has won worldwide acclaim.
If you are spending time in Athens at the beginning or end of your yacht charter vacation in the Aegean, be sure to book your table with a view of the marina at Varoulko Seaside and sample the wide variety of fresh fish dishes on the menu for yourself.
Fine Cuisine and Fine Views
Varoulko Seaside lives up to its name, with an enviable location right on the waterfront of the pretty Mikrolimano Marina, a small, almost perfectly circular yacht harbour in Piraeus, enjoying glorious, typically Mediterranean views over the sea. It's the perfect spot for a light lunch on a sunny day or a romantic dinner in the evenings.
The emphasis at Varoulko Seaside is on freshness, and the menu changes according to the latest local catches, but there is always an enticing variety of dishes available. A five-course set menu offers a taste of the chef's specialities, while the extensive a la carte menu includes vegetarian options.
Inventive dishes using locally sourced ingredients include cuttlefish ink soup, smoked octopus, sea bream, grouper and oysters, while the head sommelier, Alexandros, is on hand to guide you through the restaurant's comprehensive list of Greek wines.
As a major hub for superyacht charters, Athens is an ideal place to take a break either before or at the end of your yacht vacation, and with its convenient location in the picturesque Mikrolimano Marina, Varoulko Seaside is the ideal place for you and your guests to enjoy authentic Greek seafood at its very best.
