We went for dinner at Piatsa Michalis on our last night, a blowout as we were full board at our hotel, also as it was recommended by Trip Advisor and Albie from the Boomerang Bar, it seemed rude not too.
The service and meal were both first class, not cheap at €88 (inc. wine) for two but worth it.

Prior to ordering we had a drink in the bar adjacent to the dining area, we then moved through to order.

We started with some Tzatziki and Garlic Bread. We then had a Rocket and Balsamic Salad with Parmesan shavings, which was enormous to follow. My wife decided on fish for her main, the waiter bringing three examples to the table for her to select, which was a choice of Red Snapper, Sea Bream and some unfortunate flatfish, not unlike a Flounder. I chose a Fillet Steak, both were cooked to perfection. A complimentary sweet and Ouzo finished off a lovely meal.

At the end of the meal as we were leaving Mikos our waiter introduced us to Michalis the owner, who as most of the people on Thassos was utterly charming.

From the moment you enter the elegant surroundings of Piatsa Michalis(Right on the beachfront) you are assured of a warm welcome from Nikos and the rest of the staff. The food and service are both excellent, in particular I can recommend the grilled octopus and the special kebab (Truly Delicious). The menu is extensive with many Greek specialities all delicious. We ate here on several occasions and each time we received free ouzo and a free dessert and even a free round of drinks one night, what more could you ask for!

They even have a separate bar/lounge area with very comfortable furniture and excellent cocktails which can be enjoyed looking out to sea and watching the sunset.

All in all I cannnot recommend it highly enough, give it a try you won't be disappointed!

Even though we didn't eat here, we visited most night for a couple of drinks.Much more pleasant for folks who wanted to be away from the hustle and bustle and noise of the "Strip" of bars etc

Thassos is a lovely island in the northern part of the Aegean sea, with beatiful deep blue water, magic inland, colossal montains and picturesque villages,

My family and I, together with friends, visited Piatsa Michalis for the first time three years ago, since then we come back every summer.
To be there is refreshing and inspiring, because of the excellent location, the unique sea views, the atmosphere of the bar in the shadow of grapes, the delicious food, and especially for the wonderful kind people working there.
The location is perfect for families with children: from the pension you enter directly the open-air bar and restaurant, and from there it goes directly to the 1km long sand beach.

I am writing these lines being at this place, and I already forward coming back again next year.

The waiters are very friendly and helpful (we had two small children with us). The tables are well spaced out giving plenty of room for the pushchair. The menu is extensive. The grilled octopus starter was delicious, with a garnish of chopped spring onions. The keftico was stunning and filling. House open red wine very drinkable. Greek salad & tzaziki portions were huge (best shared). However, the meatballs were served without a sauce and in consequence were a bit dry, which was a pity as everything else was so good. The price was not exorbitant. The sea view as the sun set was fantastic.
