Nice greeting and seated with amazing views of the ocean. Service was good and not rushed at all. Food was excellent pasta, steak and chicken dish were just the right amount and we all were surprised how good it was (it felt like fine dining)....But in a relaxed atmosphere with great music. I would really recommend this to families with teenagers. A lot cooler than mum and dad.More

Went on trip advisor review. Music too loud. Steak 12 euros good, chips reheated, salad OK. Total 23 euros. Maybe a group of people would have fared better.

Nice bar restaurant on the main beachfront road (can be noisy at times so don't expect a romantic dinner) with good vibes and excellent food. We tried burgers and salads which were delicious. Staff is friendly and service was fast.

Will definitely come back for round two!More

Congratulation for the excellent experience offered to me. Everything was as it should have been. Highly recommend this place for the real meat, European style😉. Service immaculate and all waiters well spoken.

My wife and I had dinner at The Backroom on a Saturday night in February 2020. The atmosphere was nice and cozy, not crowded. Excellent service, a satisfactory variety of meat and pasta, soups and salads. We tried the soup of the day which was...ok, loved the mushrooms and were deeply happy with our ribeye. The chef/owner was kind enough to share some of his secrets with us and invite us to his summer restaurant in Halkidiki. Definitely worth going back. The prices are a bit high just as anyone would expect in a fine dining restaurant on the Thessaloniki waterfront.More

We had two different meats and two different starters. Chorizo as a starter was nice. Ribeye steak was perfect. The other steak was ok, but not nearly as good as the ribeye. Overall I was pleased.

Here’s why I liked this place: 1) Staff were super friendly. 👍🏼 2) Good menu options. 3) Amazing location just on the seafront. Great views from most seats! 4) Brilliant chips/fries (put ask for no salt! 😂) 5) Comfortable seating. 6) Nice music and general...ambience. Whilst I didn’t have the steak, it looks more of a steak house so I’m going back to try that! But even so, worth a visit in my opinion.More

We came here after searching for the best Steak house. The restaurant is at the back of a bar which was confusing. Also the menu was confusing as it's not usual to mix Italian with Steak. Anyway, we ordered a salad and had two different...steaks. They were excellent. The meat itself was matured well, cut correctly, cooked perfectly with good seasoning. Prices were reflective of the quality so overall our experience was positive. However one big point is why I put only 4 stars. The man who cuts the steaks was wearing his gloves but touched everything, including the door handle to enter the drying room, a glass at the bar... literally everything after cutting raw meat. It defeats the object and point of wearing gloves. I hope management read this as we really liked this place but we found this somewhat alarming. Overall the food was excellent but this put us off a little. Also they need to change cutlery between courses when charging 30 euro for a steak. We will try the place again in the future.More

We visited for lunch and were not disappointed. Athena was very attentive even to the point of providing non alcoholic shots for the kids with the bill!! Massive portions - be prepared for full tummies from very tasty food.

Without doubt one of the best aged ribeye steaks in Greece, trust me I’m a butcher. A place not to be missed.
