The Kalamaria area it's around 8 km far from the downtown of Thessaloniki. You can go there by your car, by taxi (around 10-15 euro depends on the traffic) or by bus . The restaurant it's placed in a small bay with a nice view . The food it's great , you can enjoy the " Greek mezes" , the fish of the day , pasta , soups, etc . The things that can be disturbing are the fact that they are smoking (even if it's forbidden) , there are passing a lot of airplanes (the airport it's quite close) which can be a little be noisy and in case you are "lucky" to be there when the restaurant it's full ....than you have to be patient . But in general it's a good restaurant with a very tasty fresh fish .

we had an excellent meal of fresh fish and with very quick service. The only thing with this taverna is that almost everybody smokes but smoking cigars is unacceptable

We went to this restaurant without much expectations, as all the meals we have had in Thessaloniki have been amazing... until we ordered a fish off the menu and it was literally the best fresh grilled fish we have ever had!! This place is not the cheapest, but it definitely had the best fresh fish, very attentive waiters, and a beautiful sea view (literally, you are sitting by the water) Would recommend it to anyone visiting Thessaloniki that likes good food. Enjoy!

Both for business or with friends, this taverna is a guarantee for a successful lunch or dinner. In winter areas, specific areas for smokers and no-smokers are respected. In the summer, possibility to eat near the sea (Good idea to order).
It is Greek-style taverna specialized in fish and sea-food. The service is efficient and friendly. A meal with first and main dishes, and alcohol, would usually cost around 25-30 euros a person. Cheap in relation to the quality of the food and the environment. Fresh fish (you can check it in the kitchen) is minimum 60 euros the kg [that's a US$75 or UK pounds 50]. The fish really makes the difference in the pricing [but sea food is OK].
In a Thessaloniki suburb (between Kalamaria and Nea-Krini), this place is worth the detour. Good meal, fresh food, clean kitchen, nice service - never been disappointed!
