Nicely located in front of the sea. Probably one of the few in the area that you are so close to the sea. Nothing exceptional but reasonable with good quality food. Possibly overpriced.

I was a Sunday lunchtime guest at this restaurant and though I have a few quibbles I still have to give 5 stars because of the quality of the overall experience. Firstly the food is wonderful. Simple unpretentious Greek dishes using fresh ingredients. The large fish that was ordered to share between 7 people was exquisite. Just add a little lemon juice what more could you need? With it we had a whole selection of accompanying dishes and nothing disappointed. The setting down a little lane by the sea and next to a sailing club is also really lovely. The place was totally packed but we had booked and had a table outside under awning. If you drive someone takes your keys and parks your car so tight is the parking but it is slick and organised and secure and and the gate to the lane was manned so that the car park is restricted to restaurant users. The service was good, the staff polite and we enjoyed the whole experience very much. My only quibble as others have noted is that people do smoke but it is the same all over Greece as many many restaurants do not ban it. It did not however affect my enjoyment on this visit. My tip as always when eating fish in a Greek restaurant is to always find out about what you are getting eg fresh/previously frozen/farmed etc and agree the COOKED FINAL PRICE before you eat, otherwise you may get a shock.Fish in Greece is usually of excellent quality but it is not a cheap food. In this restaurant you can go and look and select your fish yourself.

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
