Most excellent seafood dishes, close to Thessaloniki

Spent an excellent evening with a party of 15 guests. Ate in the new part of the restaurant across a small path from the original buildings. Slightly austere and dated decor but if it had not been raining the sea views would have compensated, so will have to return on a sunny evening. Service... read more

I remember Hamodrakas since I was little, was a legendary restaurant with the best seafood in the city, only for those that could afford to visit. Things have obviously changed. The restaurant itself looks very old and tired. The location remains fantastic. Menu was satisfying and staff very courteous and professional. Prices were way better than the old days given... More

This has got to be one of the best places in Thessaloniki. First of all, the location is awesome and the view is breathtaking! In addition, the restaurant offers a great atmosphere with quality and creative dishes; not to mention the great service and the knowledgable staff. Our waiter Zack was attentive and personable and made the dinner absolutely terrific.... More

This was a quick drive into Thessaloniki as we were staying overnight at an airport hotel and the Kalamaria area is on the airport side of the city. Lots of restaurants to choose from but this had good reviews so we picked it as wanted somewhere a little special for the last night of a month in Greece. It didn't... More

We stopped by in March after a month of being in Greece on the way home, we had read the earlier reports and quite liked what we read. Needless to say we were not disappointed, it was a little difficult to find, but well worth the hunt. The food was outstanding and service was great. It is quite a typical... More

Like great seafood? Like great service? Like tiny bills? This is your place. Try the scallops. They are massive and come in the original shell.

We had a business dinner at this place and had a very good time. What I personally disliked was the heavy smoking going on. It is hard to find restaurants in Greece that actually have banned smoking. Other than that, the place is a good choice for dinner. Food was very tasty. I liked the rice with mussels a lot... More

I used to go to this restaurant with my father decades ago when it was a simple fish tavern. Hamodrakas is a typical case of a restaurant that re-invented itself and is now a trendy fish restaurant. I have been there several times in recent years, especially in the summer. All my experiences were good. The food was delicious, on... More
