Excellent tavern next to the sea

Hamodrakas is one of the oldest taverns in Kalamaria, Thessaloniki. It is directly next to the sea, ideal for lunch or dinner. Whenever I have visitor from abroad it is my first choice. We were three, and had squid, muscles, small fish (koutsoumoures), Greek salad, tsoukini with tzatziki, and they... read more

A very good place to enjoy a dinner either business or with friends. Excellent and fresh seafood, perfect service, pricey enough.

I was very fortunate during a recent trip to Greece to be taken to Hamodrakas for lunch by a friend who lives in Thessaloniki. This fantastic restaurant is located away from the usual tourist sites so had it not been for our friend we would not have been lucky enough to enjoy the ambience & beautiful setting of this lovely...

I've eaten here twice and had a great meal each time. Ask the waiter what is fresh - he or she will bring you a platter of available fish to choose from if you want. I've ordered the brancine (sea bass) and zubatac (dentex), grilled, with wild spinach.

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 outstanding, multilingual staff gave great recommendations... More
