“Not to be missed in Thessaloniki!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2013

It has been quite a while since we ate at this marvelous restaurant, but when we first tried to write a review, it wasn't found by Trip Advisor. Now that it has been found and reviewed I would like to sing its praises. Located on a sort of cul de sac in the Modiano market, it is certainly not easy to locate, but undoubtedly worth the effort. It is also know as Tou Thanassis; Thanassis apparently being the name of the late owner. We understood that it is now run by his sons.
We had a delightful and delicious evening there that included wonderful traditional Greek dishes prepared to perfection. Service is very friendly and helpful and prices are very reasonable. Special mention should be given to Panayotis (Peter), who served our food and made our stay so much more enjoyable. The high point, in addition to the food, was the live music, including rebetiko and laika favorites upon request, played enthusiastically on bouzouki and guitar by a talented duo. The restaurant offers live music every evening.
Hopefully the difficult economic circumstances in Greece have not hurt this gem. It seems still to be open and we wish it well.
In Thessaloniki make the effort to find this fantastic place.

“Friendly staff, quality food.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013

We had a great night at Myrovolos Smyrni. Although it was hard to find the place, when we were there, we enjoyed the food we had. Since we were hungry, we had to go earlier than local people but the staff treated us very friendly, especially Nico who did not accept the tip we left for him. We tried nearly all the mezes and liked them all. Definitely worth trying.
