Where to Eat in Ierissos: The Best Restaurants and Bars

August 3, 2017 Weston Hennigan

Ierissos (Greek: Ιερισσός) is a small town on the east coast of the Akti peninsula in Chalkidiki, Greece. It is located 160 km from Thessaloniki, and 10km from the border of the Autonomous Monastic State of the Holy Mountain, or Mount Athos. It is the site of Ancient city and former bishopric Hierissus, and as such remains a Latin Catholic titular see. Ferries run from Ierissos to the east coast of Mount Athos.

Great place with excellent food and service. You should try everything from the menu for sure don't miss the octopus in red wine and the Athos fish recipe. Portions are huge. Make a reservation though as apart from guests, loots of local people go there for dinner.

Before visiting Mt Athos we spent a day in Ouranopolis and for dinner we luckily choose to stop here avoiding those very touristy restaurants on the seafront.. We had the best stuffed calamari I tasted in Greece in the last 3 travels! Plus great wine and attentive service. Do not miss if you stop for a night in town.

Quality food and drinks by the sea.

Reviewed By Kalokasidis K - Thessaloniki, Greece

After a lot of swimming in the beautiful beach everybody needs some rest in the shadow and some finger foods.kosta kosta offers great pizza with truffle and mozzarella and delicious carbonara.also Caesar salad and club sandwiches.the only reason it doesn't take a five star is the lack of desserts and the lack of sea food.the beer plate was also average and the service totally inadequate

Reviewed By The_Wild_Edge - Stamford, United Kingdom

Service is manic with the waiters running, bumping into my chair on several occasions and shouting across the restaurant to one another. Tables are close together and we have never been in such a smokey restaurant - not their fault but you can actually taste the cigarette smoke. I was not charged for my meat in Madeira sauce which was inedible - tasting overwhelmingly of salt and Bisto. The best things about the place is the location and view if you get an outer table. How this gets good ratings is beyond us - best avoided.

How we found this place - God only knows. It's a little piece of paradise on a hilltop. Lovely restaurant with good food and unobtrusive but friendly staff. The portion are huge, you might think of sharing especially the exceptional salads. All ingredients are sourced locally and from the onsite farm, you get a sense of pride from the staff.
The fully functioning farm attached was a surprise! Horse riding lessons available, goats, pigs, donkeys and dogs which delighted the children. Bed and breakfast also available. Extremely picturesque. If you're looking for a piece of God's country, look no further.

Traditional Greek Cafe O Lefteris

A greek oldschool cafe, open since 1932 for coffee, loukoumi, ouzo and meze.

Reviewed By Nic9A - Cambridgeshire

Thoroughly recommend this delightful old outdoor cafe in the central square. Simple menu sitting at traditional tables, the charming Maria will show you where to sit to avoid the mosquitoes and will tell you about her family's running of the cafe for 85 years and other information that you wouldn't otherwise discover.
