Athonos Square

Beautiful nights full of music and delicious “mezedes”!


Athonos Square is one of the most vibrant and interesting areas of Thessaloniki.

It is located just before Aristotelous Plaza within a small walkable distance about 200m west of the church of Agia Sofia (Holy Wisdom) thus lying in the heart of the city center.

A historic plaza full of music and scents

The place is considered one of the best places to eat and a favorite destination for both locals, college students and tourist visitors. There are several taverns specialized in Greek traditional cuisine and recipes, while several Balkan and Eastern flavors and influences are quite obvious as well.

This pretty much depicts the city’s identity and history, as Thessaloniki was the crossroad of several different civilizations each one representing a different food culture and philosophy. 

The majority of the taverns and restaurants are beautifully decorated and some include live Greek traditional music. The environment is usually warm and friendly. Prices are generally considered reasonable and the service is accurate.

If you visit the area during the day you will discover some traditional small shops that offer spices, food products, hand made straw items and small furnitures made with care. For many decades the entire area was one of the most busy commercial destinations of the city.

  •   Make your own combination of salads and other smaller but less expensive tempting dishes. Try as many different flavors as possible! The dessert is usually provided free of charge everywhere.
  •   If you are looking something different you can always try the well hidden “Bit Bazaar” area or the also well-known tourist “Ladadika” district whether you are interested in having a drink or go clubbing.
