Seafood meal for two. Great selection of fish cooked perfectly. Chef made a hot sauce from scratch that blended with the sea bass. Sides were excellent, Great wine selection

Complete satisfaction … Grilled Octopus appetizer wonderful! Fish any way you like it …grilled , sautéed, blackened all fresh.. Pick your own from the iced display and it is perfectly prepared… Great Wine list and Greek deserts worth the calories

Varka is very overpriced. The service is pretty good, but it should be for what the waiters make 💰that work there, haha. I was not impressed with the food. In this area you can get fantastic meals at half the price.
