Description: A living legend of Thessaloniki.In the shadow of the white tower there is a historical restaurant of Thessaloniki with friendly atmosphere and great food.A lot of important people of Greece visited the restaurant from the beginning of the century. (Venizelos, Merkouri, Chatzidakis etc.)The sea air, the theaters, the cinemas are is charm and the erotic affair of Dore with the white tower. But that is just a secret…And story goes on, like a fairytale, where in the end everyone lives happily ever after!

“a part of the city's history”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 25, 2013

Zythos is a very traditional choice for someone that visits Thessaloniki. Its location used to be the pit for all kind of culture, musicians, poets, writers used to have a drink while discussing on art....today it's a succesful restaurant with traditional tastes and a great view of the White Tower.

“Not so good”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 7, 2013

Had a bussines dinner there and after other comments expected much more than I got. Restaurant inside was ok, nothing special. Starters and finger food were great, but main course was disapointment, for whole group. It was not very tasteful, strange flavours. All in all probably would not go there again.

“nice flavors ,overpriced at all”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 24, 2013

Generally has the same menu the last years.of course is situated in an excellent position,in front of the white tower and in a pedestrian area.the problem is that is overpriced and despite the try of every restaurant to low the prices so they can have clients,they have the same prices .
the service is quite good,they try for the best and some times they promote more some extra orders.is not necessary either.

“Delightful find, traditional values and cool music”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 21, 2013 via mobile

Recommended by our hotel, this proved great and far from too dear. Service was friendly and helpful with regard to what we ordered. We started with their recommended soup of the day (excellent) and followed with some of the best tomato patties (keftides) that I've had. Mushroom Cajun style was excellent as a starter. The main courses, chicken and burgers respectively, were a good contrast to normal Greek fare.
The large selection of wines by the glass impressed, as did the taste of those we tried.
The ambience was great - central Eurpean bar style. Founded in 1917 the atmosphere radiated from the aged mirrors and well chosen decorations.
Not for your most celebratory meal, but fine for a memorable lunch or dinner.

“sister establishment is better”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 29, 2013

We first tried the sister establishment, Zythos on Katouni street, and it was better: livelier, more people, better atmosphere. They modified the menu for me, and made vegan, so I really appreciate. However, the wine was terrible.. I really did not like Greek wine being served in the restaurants.. Wi-fi better working in the sister Zythos!!
