I have visited Petra every year for the last decade and my go-to restaurant is THALASSA! Fabulous, fresh, well-prepared local Greek dishes made just the way Yiayia did. In fact, a Yiayia does cook there!

We have visited Petra for many years but have never been to Thalassa a situation we rectifies last week. The service from Nikos and Maria was excellent and the cooking wonderful. Being the end of season there was only a limited choice but the fried hard cheese and grilled meatballs were exceptional. We shall visit again next year.

While on a beautiful, relaxing holiday on the island of Lesvos, we had a lovely meal in the restaurant Thalassa in Petra, which serves traditional Greek cuisine.. Everything we tried was delicious and the service was fast and friendly. I recommend you try the stuffed tomatoes (vegetarian) and traditional soudzoukakia (a meat dish).

Friendly service, generous portions (as tends to be the case locally), unfailingly tasty food. Particular favourites - spicy stuffed cabbage leaves and the stuffed calamari (a delicate but flavoursome traditional dish in orange sauce - a treat).
