“Superb Greek”
Reviewed December 17, 2013 via mobile



Looking to sample various excellently prepared Greek dishes without the expensive price tag - you've found it.

Tucked away on a small street, quiet, unassuming place . At first glance it appeared to be a market selling local goods, but why where the patrons sitting around. Upon entering you again wonder hum is this really a restaurant? But once inside the wait staff quickly suggest setting anywhere.

They set up with appetizers instead of various main dishes categorized by type, fish , sardines, vegetables, salads, etc . One must start with bread olive oil and various spreads. Think of the bread as an appetizer unto itself.

We choose the meatballs and eggplants, which was more than enough for two. Dessert is a must a vanilla ice cream with chocolate cake - oh my how Devine.

From our experience thus far while in Greece meal time is an experience not to be rushed rather saviored. The wait staff is wiling to
Make suggestions, offer samples, all the while sharing other patrons
thoughts about items. Sit back, relax, and we'll see you in a few hours .

“Very typical excellent Greek foog”
Reviewed November 30, 2013

I was taken (invited) by a Greek friend. It was for sure my best meal in Greece and probably the best meal I've had in a restaurant. Incredible value, considering the quality/variety and service.
The staff is very friendly and efficient. This should be a reference to all restaurants...

“the best thalassina I had in the last few years”
Reviewed November 23, 2013

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.

“Delicious”
Reviewed November 2, 2013

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.
