“do not miss the gyros, is uniquely grilled and superb in taste!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2013

we went for an afternoon business lunch. This restaurant has mainly grill specialties in the unique Thessaloniki way. Apart form gyros, sausages rustique style are a must. Table wine was also good. Salds are Ok, and sometimes the ingredients products of imagination. Fairly priced as well

“THE MEAT EATERS PLACE”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2012

TIGANIES & SCHARES (fullname), meaning ALL FRIED AND GRILLED, is the chain's name as it operates 3 Restaurants in Thessaloniki city. Last Sunday my family and our friends (4 children in total) visited the restaurant which lays in Sofouli str, in the east part of the city, ofering a seaview. Despite the sunshine, we chose to sit indoors, and the atmoshpere was very clean, as all windows were open. We ordered a variety of grilled meat dishes, like small burgers, kontosouvli (smal pork skewer) and lamb chops with fries. We escorted our meat dishes with green salads and grilled manouri cheese, and we selected the house red dry wine for our drink. The service was quick and very polite, the food was very well cooked and tasty and the wine great. According to the house tradition, we were offered chocolate and cheesecake after lunch. We enjoyed our lunch there, and will definitely visit the restaurant again, although I have a feeling that it was somehow overpriced...!

“Enough is enough!!!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2012

the room was ful of smoke. The meat was bad and the house wine of lowest quality. Leaving the restaurant I had to take a shower and change clothes as the ones I was wearing were stinking. Sorry that kind of restaurant belongs to the early 80's not to 2012

“Environment is strongly combined with excellent food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2012

"Kebap" and grilled meat are perfect. Don't forget to order "fried patatoes" and some nice starters.
