Nice restaurant near the white tower of Thessaloniki. It is open only during weekdays and not on weekends. Its main dishes are gyros, soutzoukakia, and three or four salads- a quite limited choice- but not a huge drawback in the end. The dishes are tasty, the portions could be bigger. The service is a little hasty. Concerning the prices it is not an inexpensive choice, regarding the fact that both gyros as well as soutzoukakia is a rather cheap choice for a meat dish.

A few steps away from the White Tower, Diagonios is regarded as an institution by Thessalonikians. The choice is quite limited and consists mainly of grilled meats. There's nothing wrong with that - they stick to the things they do well and freshly. The place is famous for its meatballs (Soutzoukakia) and they're very good and tasty indeed. The grilled country sausage left nothing to be desired either and the housemade appetizers such as eggplant salad and the freshly-cut chips are also excellent. What makes the place stand out from the crowd of Greek grill restaurants is the impression of freshness and cleanliness it leaves. The winelist is surprisingly good. Elliniko next door is also a reasonable choice if Diagonios is full or if you're into mezedes. Will definitely return!

Well you should go there to taste the real food people of Thessaloniki eat. The place is packed every afternoon from people after work or shopping wanting something tasty and fast in a nice seating environment. The famous Soutoukakia are a must (grilled meatballs) and the old school pork gyros. The place is famous all over for these... Other choices of meat like steaks and chicken are available, all good. Try your soutzoukakia with traditional 'Rosiki' salad...

Down Town Thessaloniki, this is a clean, fresh and tasty place. Not too much choice, not too luxury - but even for a casual business meal - it makes it very well. Very reasonable budget. If you pass via Thessaloniki, it is a must you say that you tried the meat balls of Diagonios!
