If you want more than that, I don't know what to say. But, it isn't a 5* experience. The featured dessert (kind of a creme brulee in phyllo) was soggy (albeit tasty), but that was the only flaw. Also, they handled a group of 15...More

I have been to Thalassa on numerous occasions and have been very pleased with each dining experience. It is ideal spot for birthday dinners or a romantic date. The restaurant always seems intimate to me even when each table is occupied.

Very nice atmosphere! That's what impressed me the most. High ceilings, big space, flowing curtains. There was an area near the bar where they put out their fresh seafood produce in ice. The bathroom is in a wine cellar area. Candles everywhere. I saw photos...More

Wow! What an amazing night at this hidden gem; I loved the nautical island theme. The food equally made a splash (no pun intended ; ) To start, we tried the GF Black Quinoa, along with my fav cult-classics, Greek salad and grilled octopus. I...More

This restaurant was set back in a quiet street and the food was spectacular. The starter was big enough to be a main but I would highly recommend the stuffed squid starter and the fillet mignon main - absolutely delicious. The service time was also...More

What’s in a name? In this case it is the unique title

nickname in the 1970s. An attractive neighbourhood
