What can 2 hungry salesmen do after a busy day? They use TripAdvisor to hunt down some good place to eat. Such a place is Rouga. Although not easy to find, the place is quite big. Now only the inside was open but as soon as the weather will allow it, they will start to use the terrace too. Some... More

Worth going to while in Thessaloniki! Live traditional music is played nightly, and the menu is extensive with several courses of traditional Greek food. Definitely consider sharing some red wine, Greek salad, fried cheese, mousaka, and cooked meats. The servings are good for sharing and very affordable. The complimentary dessert is so good!

The food in this restaurant was so good that we came back two times during our week stay. Local dishes, fresh with a good service for a good price. First time bit difficult to find because is situated in an alley but was definitely worth it to search for!

We went here for an evening meal whilst on holiday. The restaurant is in a little alleyway decorated with lights, birdcage and painted figures and is lovely, particularly in the evening with the lights on. The restaurant staff were friendly and welcoming and we were very well looked after. The food was absolutely lovely. I had feta baked in honey... More

The location of this little gem of a restaurant is a joy in itself- a lovely alley with beautiful lighting and mannequins of traditional Greek jobs (sounds much weirder than it looks!) The staff were charming and welcoming to our largish group- couldn't fault the service. All the dishes were great- we had seafood, pasta, burgers, vegetarian, as well as... More

I have returned to this taverna many times and I am always so satisfied. The staff is super, the food is fresh and seems to be better every time I'm there. Some nights there is live music bouzoukia. It's just a wonderful taverna in a small alley away from the traffic. Cozy and delicious !
