Description: The feel of Mytilene is reflected in every corner of the Molyvos restaurant with handmade wooden furniture, the sculpted iron sconces, the painted ceilings, the big island sofas and of course the 9 balconies with the small olive groves, the bustling mahogany and the flower beds full of monsters , thyme, basilicas revive in the center of Thessaloniki the island's charm of Molyvos. Molyvos Restaurant unleashes the senses with flavours and aromas of Constantinople and the East with Aegean and Mediterranean flavours. In Molyvos, on the mezzanine floor, we created our own cellar, made with the same materials that it built in 1930. On its shelves over 40 different ouzos and tsipouro from all over Greece, spreading a delicate scent of anise. Wines are also kept from small vineyards and vineyards, as well as pastries and pickles all made by us.

This restaurant features prominently in the Lonely Planet guide as a place that "elevates Greek cuisine to fine dining." Don't be fooled. We usually don't trust guidebook recommendations, but a local friend also recommended the place, so we decided to check it out. They served us the worse food we had in three days in Thessaloniki (a city we love, but truly lacking in places for fine dining)--one of the plates they served consisted of canned fish--smoked trout (?), the kind you buy at Trader Joe's for $ 2-3. It is a pity because the place is charming and has some potential (though the music was too loud).

A great mix of Traditional Greek tastes and the tastes of the greater Hellenic mother lands around the Mediterranean region. Great decor and atmosphere. A classic and classy place to enjoy a fresh variety of Greek flavors.

nice menu, excellent dishes, romantic atmosphere, preferred in the winter. For a light salad, i definitely recommend the one with chicken and pasta etc. A little bit expensive , without meaning extremely, but i would definitely recommend it.

In the menu one can find both traditional and international dishes. I've visited this restaurant many times and all the dishes that I have tasted were really tastefull. The atmosphere is warm and friendly. Extra bonus: in the end they treat hot traditional donuts with honey and vanilla ice-cream!

We visited this restaurant as it was highly recommended from friends and city's restaurant guides.
Well they had probably misjudged, because, apart from the nice and picturesque scenery, this restaurant had nothing to offer.
Small portions, not well cooked food and rather high prices.
The service was a mess, too. It took them more than 15 minutes to come for our order and more than 25 minutes to settle our bill when we asked for it.
