November 14, 2017 Darwin Bolte

Thessaloniki (Greek: Θεσσαλονίκη, Thessaloníki [θesaloˈnici] ( listen)), also familiarly known as Thessalonica or Salonica, is the second-largest city in Greece, with over 1 million inhabitants in its metropolitan area, and the capital of Macedonia, the administrative region of Central Macedonia and the Decentralized Administration of Macedonia and Thrace. Its nickname is η Συμπρωτεύουσα (Symprotévousa), literally "the co-capital", a reference to its historical status as the Συμβασιλεύουσα (Symvasilévousa) or "co-reigning" city of the Eastern Roman (Byzantine) Empire, alongside Constantinople.

Prytanio

Reviewed By Historygirl_13 - Faversham, United Kingdom

Re-visited beautiful Thessaloniki this July and went straight to Prytanio after arriving. The delightful owners recognised us from our previous visit and could not have been more welcoming. The food was just as delicous as we remembered it from last year and we ate here most evenings during our visit. Highly recommended.

Reviewed By stuart1895 - Scotland, United Kingdom

We didn't eat here but enjoyed a few drinks recently and always had fun in the evening while Lena was on duty, but visited one lunchtime before enjoying a local lunch and were served by a very rude lady. On more than one occasion we were spoken to very abruptly and treated with contempt.
This was unfortunate as we had enjoyed the atmosphere of Lena's Bistro until then, but didn't return.
Quite annoyed really!!

Rouga

Reviewed By Ελισάβετ Χ - Nikaia, Greece

I visited Rouga for the second time in one month and I got amazed again with the atmosphere of the place and with the flavors I tasted. The food is amazing. Even though it is not a vegetarian or vegan restaurant, they have so many veg choices and they even write in their menu what is what. The staff was both times so polite. They also gave us dessert free of charge. Thank you for everything. We'll come back for sure ;)

Poselli Pizza

Reviewed By elias a - London, United Kingdom

The title says it all! The pizza is really delicious. We got one zucchini pizza and one margherita. Both of them were very tasty.
The service was also very good. We were sitting inside, but one of the people who work there set up 2 tables for us outside when the pizzas arrived.
I would definitely go back.

Odos Delfon

A different shop, a real gem in Delphon Street. The decoration is unique and warm in a modern mood and welcomes us since morning for coffee, omelets, pancakes, all homemade recipes with fresh ingredients. The kitchen is open 08:00am - 01:00am and few of the things worth trying are the burgers,the "sun" salad and the risotto with eight different kinds of mushrooms. Try the millefeuille and the "Delphon Street" with caramelized apples, puff pastry and cinnamon ice cream . The music that will follow you all day long is in a jazz atmosphere

Reviewed By mc m - Bury St. Edmunds, United Kingdom

We enjoyed a long,lazy lunch here.The menu is not too long and features some interesting combinations.The mushroom starter as good but was a bit overpowered by the lemon in the sauce and the asparagus was a bit woody.The house salad was very good.The burger was popular with my partner and my prawn linguine was tasty.Portions are generous.The Apple and ice cream dessert went down well and the chocolate mousse was very rich.The wine list is reasonable and the staff are very friendly ,the restaurant had a buzzy welcoming feel to it.

I visited this cozy and warm place for a business meeting. I was amazed with the Argentine steak which was maturing for two months. Very well cooked and excellent food styling (served with a hot stone with melted butter) .the risotto with truffle was delicious and also the baby potatoes. Don’t underestimate the desserts. Pavlova was amazing also the armenovil and the chocolate cake served with melted chocolate and ice cream! A must visit .

Pizza Please

Reviewed By PRANICK - Thessaloniki, Greece

A tiny place for pizza lovers. A few tables available indoors, few sitting places outdoors. The pizzas' are prepared in the customers' sight, while the stone oven bakes them. Italian flavours' pizzas served. Small variety in beers and drinks, some italian drinks available.
An unforgettable experience and taste, not just an ordinary pizza house.
When you taste the first pizza slice, then you understand the difference!
