I’m back again. Trip to Thessaloniki is not complete without lunch here. No need for me to stress that the octopus is the highlight of the menu! Mouth watering!!! 🤤🤤 Try the chicken with mushroom and the eggplant for a change. Again they never disappoint...me! Good place to enjoy and sumptuous lunch watching the world goes by... ophs... don’t forget the ouzo!! 😉More

Bang in the middle of Modiano market, and a fixed part of the market’s rhythms, a delightful spot for mezes, salads, seafood, and a small, simple selection of house wines. The food is fresh, simple but oozing natural flavours. The salads rich in quantity and...vegetables crispy to the bite. There is something calming in sitting at the Modigliani, slowly savouring the food while watching the surrounding bustle of the market, even on a quiet day...Charming.More

This is a small unassuming typical Greek tavern which was recommended by our local tourist guide. It is a simple place with a limited menu but with good prices (about CAD$10.00 per person for lunch). The staff speaks English and can explain the dishes for...you in detail. The food is simple but tasty. A lunch for 6 people including a beer and one glass of ouzo came to 43 euros before gratuities. So, sit, relax on the outdoors, look at the people go by and enjoy your food!More

Modigliani Tavern is located in the area of Kapani Market. By far is not a fancy place, is just a Greek typical tavern, serving a good variety of meze – those traditional Greek snacks – ouzo, wine, beer and other refreshments. There are indoor and...outdoor seats, but if the weather is good I would recommend outdoor seats– a great opportunity to enjoy not only your drinks and meze, but also the nice atmosphere of the market. After our shopping sessions this was the perfect place for relax, a cold beer and some snacks.More

If you don’t mind slightly slow service, this is a great spot for people-watching and a good Greek coffee. We didn’t try any of the snacks, but they looked great as well.

It is a very unique food experience in the Modiano Market. The server asked us to order the drink (i.e., wine ;^) first. They would pair foods with the wine depending on red or white. You can order your own if you want. The price...is very reasonable. I was in a rush and finished the lunch in an hour but I could easily spend the whole afternoon there enjoying the local wine and the food. There are both outdoor and indoor sittings.More

Had to wait a while for a table and for service but it was well worth the wait! The locals sit for hours enjoying the location and the atmosphere, nobody is in a rush! We ordered a selection of Mezas and a large salad. The...smoked sardines and smoked Mackerel were out of this world!More

Small tables in a very simple surrounding, but the food is excellent. For everybody who wants to try the real food of the area. And good service (they also speak english). Please note they close about 5 PM.
