“Great food, excellent location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 17, 2012

We visited this restaurant twice when we went to Petra and we thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The seafood selections were quite good but a little uninteresting menu. I believe they execute the traditional dishes very well, and the owner's daughter (who served us both times) was exceptionally helpful in choosing the best dishes for us and making us feel very much welcome in the place.

And let's face it, after lunch what is better than walking 5 more steps and helping yourself to a beach chair and umbrella for an afternoon nap.

Great job.

“Great food!”

Great food, very friendly staff and very good prices. Both the meat and the fish are very tasty, with a big variety of different recipes.

Great lamb in pot (Kleftiko). Caring, attentive service. Prices much the same as the other 20 or more places along the beach.

“wonderful family run restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 7, 2012

Have known Eleni and her family for many years and when they had their taverna in Petri we would look forward to our trek up the mountain to see them! Now they are by the sea we can visit even more and that can only be a bonus!The welcome is as warm and friendly as ever and the food is always delicious.Thalassa has a superb sea front location and where better to chill out and watch the sunset?For those who feel they need to comment on the service........anything worth having is worth waiting for!! thank you Eleni,Maria and Nikos see you next year!

“Nice but touristy”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 28, 2012

Food was OK, nothing special. Don't have the so-called Greek sausages - they are frankfurters! Go to Mahalas and have real home made Greek sausages - delicious! Was very irritated by 3 younrg / teenage boys who were running around the place clearing tables. Obviously not Greek, so don't know who they were, but annoying!
