Excellent food and service and fantastic sunset views.

We ate here several times during our stay. A family run restaurant with excellent greek food, the courgette pie was my favourite. Nicos and Maria made you feel very welcome and they were very helpful with information about the surrounding area.

Amazing food, view and service. By far the best food here in Petra, lovely moussaka and pasta. Served by a great waiter called Nickos, extremely friendly and efficient!

Petra has a number of good places to eat but for my wife & I Thalassa is our favourite. Not only for the fabulous food, variety & quality but for the atmosphere created by Maria and Nico, It is almost like being at home with friends for a family meal, relaxed & warm. If you are staying in the Petra... More

A very busy taverna frequented by tourists as well as local greek people. An extensive menu with a choice of local dishes. Meat, fish, vegetarian. Cooked, grilled or from the oven. All at very reasonable prices with free sunbeds and umbrellas on the beach. We visited this restaurant many, many times and have by now probably tasted every dish on... More

We have been coming here for many years, the food, the view, niko and his family are the most welcoming and friendly people you could ask for. It's a must to visit even just once, I recommend the prawn saganaki.....amazing is all I can say!

We have just returned from a 7 day holiday to Petra and ate 3 times at Thalassa - I'm not really sure why we didn't eat there the other 4 nights to be honest!! The food is absolutely delicious - please try the pickled anchovies or the Giant Beans to start, which are simply fabulous. For main course, the Stifado,... More

Delicious food and most importantly service is great :)) one should keep in mind that this is a family owned restaurant and delay in service is the spice of the food :))

Oh my God! Amazing food and great service. We could not believe our eyes when we saw the bill! So good and still reasonable (cheap!) prices. Do not miss this excellent restaurant! Also the wine was dryer and better tasting than in many other restaurants...

The plate of mixed dips were delightful - very tasty. My wife then had squid, stuffed with rice and orange. I was only allowed a small taste unfortunately - it was delicious. I chose the mixed plate which, again, was delicious. A great restaurant, which I would recommend to anyone.

I really don't get how this place is ranked third in Petra... I am positive that our food was not homemade and definately not freshly cooked. I had the most terrible moussaka ever - it was like eating jello with a slight hint of moussaka flavour. My wife had a sandwich that was made with a hotdog bread of a... More
