At first the place didn’t look very inviting because we walked past what was apparently the back door as the entrance is in the Ladadika area and it just depends on what side you walk by. I guess locals know this because as time went...by more and more locals filled the place. I went for the bakaliaros (cod) with chips and skordalia and definitely wasn’t disappointed. Place is simple but perfect. Skordalia with the bread served I cannot put into words. Not for snowflakes or those watching their waste line I’m sure, but other than that all was perfect. Staff very accommodating and friendly. Definitely recommend but come with an appetite as portions are huge.More
On a recent trip I visited this traditional "Greek Style Fish and Chips" tavern - and what a delight it was. It is a restaurant for those that enjoy simple pleasures in life, where the emphasis is all about the cooking of only a few...dishes really well. A great place for a group of friends or those chasing a local casual experience.
Basic decor, polite service, great ambience and, as the name suggests, brilliant fried Bakaliaro (salted cod- Bakala). People of the southern mediterrainean love this type of fish preparation. There are few other options as well as the well done accompanying side dishes .
If you choose to go to this restaurant, it is really all about the Bakaliaro. If you don't like strong flavours, you won't appreciate the depth of the salted Cod and the masterly way it is prepared. The succulent deep fried thick fish is served piping hot with a beautifully chrispy batter and enough home style thick cut greek chips to satisfy the largest of appetites. In order to have the full greek experience order the strong rather than the mild garlic sauce(skodalia) to accompany the fish with maybe a salad or Horta (wild greens).
If you order an ouzo or a beer you know you will have had a true greek food experience. You only have to see the locals from all works of life that enjoy this local institution. Rick Stein summary got it 100% right.More
I choose Mpakaliarakia tou Aristou everytime I want to eat fish and chips. The taste of the fish is exceptional. Stuff is very polite and helpfull. I certainly recommend it as a choice for a meal in Thesalonikι.
As a greek i was very disappointed that we serve this kind of food to tourist. Staff was nervous and rude , as if they have anxiety , We asked if the portions are coming with some kind of side salat and the waiter replied...: no, so we asked for an extra salad. When the 4 plates arrived , except than the food was overcooked , the had a side salat. Food was burned , tasteless , had to use a lot of salt , and definitely not a value for money.More
