“Something for everybody”
Reviewed September 17, 2012

Meze restaurant (Mezedopoleio) a stone's throw away from the White Tower and the seafront. Large selection of Ouzo and mezedes from all over Greece. The house's own tsipouro is not bad. I found some of the vegetarian mezedes such as Kritamo salad and Potato salad excellent. The fish and seafood mezes were a notch below, not that tasty. The prices are average for the location but be careful and check the price before you order any of the fresh fish they might suggest as a daily special. The deco is meant to represent a Greek grocery store of the 50's or 60's. Outside seating is better than inside: the tables are too close to each other and there's usually a lot of smoke. Service was quick and professional. Overall a quite satisfying experience, the food is good but not among the head of my list for Thessaloniki.

“A gem of a restaurant”
Reviewed August 31, 2012

We have been visiting Greece for some fifteen years and have eaten at many a restaurant in Athens and on the islands. This was our first stay in Thessaloniki. We discovered the To Elleniki restaurant near the White Tower and after a first meal there, we returned the next day (and will go back tomorrow). Service is flawless, efficient and friendly. Food is superb ( parsley salad, fried octopus balls, potato salad, smoked mackerel filet, but to name a few). With free appetizers and dessert, good wine and of course an ouzo to finish an excellent meal, this ouzeria is highly recommended.

“Best on plate!”
Reviewed August 27, 2012 via mobile

When I travel I find wandering around the city and walking past restaurants can sometimes turn up a gem. I may have unearthed a diamond with To Elliniko.

The food is every bit if not better than it looks, the service is smooth & effortless. Its a restaurant serving classic Greek mezze and dishes but fresher and more sparkling on the palette; all are perfect with any of the ouzo the extensive bar list has on offer. Enjoy

“best greek food ever!”
Reviewed August 26, 2012

We are from Cyprus, and went to Thessaloniki fro 8 days holiday and ended up eating in this restaurant 4 nights i a row. I have eaten in many Greek Tavernas around the world in my travels, but this is hands down the best by far in every department. You have to experience it yourself to believe it. The fish dishes are World class.
Thanks to all at the Taverna for a great experience.
