Very nice meal here. We had pastitio which was lovely. Very popular, you may not get a table straight away. We were given a place to wait together with a glass of ouzo. We also had free dessert.

We stopped in here as it was one of the few places that was busy on the strip. We initially had to wait 30 mins as it was full, (it was raining so the outside tables weren't available). We picked a few dishes from the menu but the standout was the kleftiko, it was really good! Friendly hosts and you... More

We were there for a dinner on a friday night. Service was excellent and we loved everything we ate. Their smoked mackerel was my best in life; I strongly recommend it. Besides that, octopus in wine was perfect, zucchini flower dolmaki was not the best I have eaten but was delicious. I can say all of the mezes were above... More

This is a "Must Visit" restaurant if you are in the Petra area of Lesbos. We have travelled all over Greece and this is best one ever! This family run place with Maria (always a smile) Nikos and Elina with it's home cooked menu is a treat. The food is terrific and great value. The stifado, meat balls and grilled... More

Our second year at the Thalassa and we were just as happy as last year. Maria and Nikos remembered us and greeted us like old friends. Food is wonderful and needless to say we will be returning again next year

You can stop by here for swimming, and eat very delicious food. Courgette dolma was legendary. Meatballs and musakka were also very good. The prices for 3 were about 30 euros.

This is our second visit to the island. We always eat at Thalassa, as the food is consistently excellent. Stuffed tomatoes and courgette flowers are two of my favourite dishes. Great value for money too and the owners are lovely people. Highly recommended!

Popular restaurant on the sea front so you may have to wait for a table in high season but the food is worth it. Great service from Nikos and Maria.
