After a tyring day full of business meetings we went to eat this place. As most of the really good place for eating, is simple from outside...simple furniture....but it is not easy to get a table....the service is quick and proper, and the meal was excellent. Of course You need someone who knows what to order, From the starters till the desert everything was tasty and prepared with attention and passion. If it comes next time to eat in Salonica, I will not hesitate to return.

We feasted on appetizers and they proved to be winners, well except for the grilled sardines which were too dry for our taste.
Good overall value.

I wish I had made note of this place before we left, because we were staying at Makedonia Palace with few eating opportunities nearby. We walked into town and spent a good half hour looking for somewhere to eat, as in all directions there seemed to be nothing but cafes. Finally at a restaurant with a menu not interesting to us, the waiter recommended nearby To Ellinikon. What a find. It was crowded with happy people, but we were given a table and treated with special attention when we were recognized as visitors. The selection of mezedes is huge and interesting. I ordered Cretan fennel pie and mushrooms cooked in cognac and balsamic vinegar. My husband chose vine leaves and calamari in basil pesto. With tsipuro and retsina, all was perfect. Note: The ouzeri is not easy to find. It is near the Starbucks that sits on the street running by the sea and about 1/2 block from that seaside road.

Great local restaurant serving mezedes and fish. The majority of the clients were locals, which indicated that this is no tourist trap. The staff was friendly and they arranged a table for us outside as soon as it got empty, as they do not take any reservation.
The food was great. We had couple of mezedes, grilled octopus which was very very tender ( as opposed to what you normally get in Greece as they sun dry them), and shrimp saganaki. The shrimp saganaki was outstanding. The price was rather reasonable compared to the amount we ate.
Definitely I will not miss To Ellinikon next time in Thessaloniki.
