If you want to eat cheap and well, this tavern is a good option. The space is very small, very simple decorated with an old jukebox at the corner.

Small traditional restaurant at the center of the city!! Offers tasty homemade food at reasonable prices. Also, take-away is available.

the place is very cheap, you have only a few choises but everything is better than ok, a nice touch is the juke box where you can try (free) and listen to old "rebetiko" records

I have been going to Giannoula since 2000. It's 15 years. The taverna is runned by a family all these years. Not a big variety of food but few and excellent. Friendliest people ever!

It's a pitty to visit Thessaloniki and don't eat at Giannoula's tavern! It's a family business, you can even see the mother of the owners to chop potatoes and onions and to prepare the dishes! I've visited this tavern first time as a student in university (many years ago) and I have to say that it serves one of the... More

No wonder so many Greek students have passed... More

an original small "taverna" with decent food (excellent tigania, souvlaki and keftedakia). Don't miss the chance to insert some coins in the old jukebox! Do not expect to order in a classic manner, just grab the pencil and fill in your order.
