A Taxi Driver's Guide to Restaurants, Cafes and Nightlife

Thessaloniki restaurants

You want to know where to eat? Where to have the best coffee and the best atmosphere? The best bars and clubs? Who do you ask? Do the local guidebooks tell you or do they have a motive behind their suggestions. There are the big-name Guidebooks but those guys breeze ina dn out of town and if they ate and drank everywhere they would have no time to write. So who can you trust?

A taxi driver of course!

These are the choices of Grigoris Moisiadis a popular taxi driver of Thessaloniki. For my choices go to Thessaloniki Nightlife


Seven Seas ( 7 Thalasses): Fish restaurant top class. Delicious dishes, wine and desserts. Best in the city! 8-10, Kalapothaki str. city centre.
Miami : fish restaurant in Nea Krini area, in front of the sea. Almost all tourists ,visitors and celebrities have been there. 18, Thetidos str. 
Halaro : Chicken specialities. Excellent service in a fantastic atmosphere,50m from the sea. Located in Arechu area ( East part ). 75, Sofouli str.
meat restaurant in Ladadika area. Delicious food , live Greek music after 21:00 . 3, Morihovou str.


Kreonidis: meat taverna with Greek music ( not live ). Located in the old town ( kastra area ) 4 ,Ohi ave

Any restaurant guide to the city of Thessaloniki that does not mention the Negreponte Taverna the hidden jewel of the city is not complete. It is very authentic and the food is superb, it is a place that many locals adore and just exactly what we want the visitors of Greece to take back with them as a memory. Its near Ladadika at 24 Aigypto street.

Coffee Bars

To Mouseio

Vogue 23, 26th October street. The best in the city. Happenings, special evetns and parties. European standards.

Rembetika Music

To find a place to listen to rembetika you should visit a " rembetadiko". Rembetadika ( plural) is a taverna with rembetika music where the musicians play music sitting in front of a small or big stage while people eat and drink.

Some of the best in town are:
Rebet Asker at 4, Tompazi str.
To Kapeilio tou Plastara ( old town ) 3, Kiprou str. 
H folia tou Kokora at 33, Lahana str.
