An interesting story is about the chef of the restaurant, Lefteris Lazarou. His father was a cook on a Greek fishing boat and gave his son the special love for cooking and fish in particular. Lefteris went to study in Italy and when he returned he set up a small restaurant on the water in Piraeus. After moving to several different neighborhoods, the restaurant won one Michelin star. The great advantage of Varoulko stems naturally from its proximity to the sea and the quality raw materials that come from it.
In the first years, the restaurant won publicity, especially thanks to squid soup with leeks prepared by the talented chef and thanks to the Kalamari dish in Pesto. But in addition to the octopus and squid soup, you'll find plenty of great fish and seafood dishes here. Freshly baked sea fish, excellent fish soup, grilled octopus salad and similar dishes are also served here, mostly based on the Piraeus fisherman's sea. Along with all these, the desserts in the restaurant are tasty and some will even say amazing.
