Clean restaurant. Nice food and view. Good service and fair prices. Unfortunately no music playing. Large part of the restaurant is outside, good solution for smokers. In the winter there are heating devices even outside ;)
And never miss drinking tsipouro!

As I don't live now in Volos, but it's my hometown, I'm a frequent visitor there. I allways prefer Dionisis, as it is one of the best "restaurants" of it's kind. For foreing visitors, I have to explain that "tsipouradiko" is a must when you visit Volos. This type of unformal "restaurants" are serving mainly "tsipouro" which is the greek version of grappa. Actually you don't order your meal there, but every "tsipouradiko" brings you it's own "meze plates", that "feats" with tsipouro. Let's say that you are a company of 4. You'll order simple "tsipouro", and they will bring you 4 little botles (40ml each) and 3 plates of "meze plates". After this you'll order "tsipouro" for a second time, and then the second 4 little botles will have 3 more "meze plates" different than the those at the first time. These can go on and on for how many times you want. Note that now, each person has to pay between 3 - 3,30 EUROS for each order, which includes both "tsipouro and meze". Also note that after 3 or 4 rounds you will have a great hearty meal for less than 14 EUROS per person. Of course you can order something from the menu list, but often these are something really special, and will rise the bill. At last I have to inform you that there are not meat based "meze plates" and the magority of them are sea food dishes. "Tsipouro" itself is a strong drink, we usually add only water (ice is accerted also), and you have to be very carefull with it. Dionisis runs another place in central Volos, which is not in the seafront, and which I recomend, as it is much more traditional. The secont "Dionisis" is on Lori str (opposite ALPHA BANK) between Iasonos str and Dimitriados str. A visit in a Volos "tsipouradiko" is a unique experience, as only spanish tapas bars can compare to them. Try Dionisis and you will not regret it.
