We stayed in Thessaloniki for a week due to a conference and unfortunately came across this restaurant very late and had only enough time to eat there twice. Otherwise, we would have come back again and again! We had an outstanding mushroom risotto, wonderful moussaka, great chicken skewers with pilaf, and the parajola salat with beetroot and cheese - and not to forget the on-the-house semolina dessert. Really everything we ordered was excellent food: all fresh, homemade and perfectly seasoned.

In addition to the excellent food this restaurant experience was made perfect by the wonderful and perfectly friendly and helpful hosts. They asked about our day, patiently explained the ingredients of the dishes, and made sure we really liked the food we chose. We also saw them deal with a rather "difficult" group of customers, who wanted lots of changes and extras. But they made everything possible.

So all we can say is: Go there, eat, and enjoy! It is easy to find! And start your meal with a glass of their delicious fresh lemonade with honey!

As soon as we get back to Thessaloniki, we will be back there, too :-)

Everything was good. We ordered one salad and one grilled pork chop with grilled vegetables to share because we were not very hungry. The portion size was good and only cost 15 euros. Good quality and taste.

Best restaurant in Thessaloniki, the food was excellent and the owner was very kind and caring. Had headache because of the hot climate and lack of water, he gave me a rehydration tablet and within 30 minutes the headache was gone!

Would recommend this restaurant to everybody who travel to Thessaloniki.

We ate here following the excellent reviews the restaurant received on many sites, and after having eaten in several other well-reviewed restaurants. The food was very good and interesting, but suffered from a comparison with other excellent restaurants we ate at. Our main criticism is that all of the dishes were over-salted. While this seems to be a common problem in Thessaloniki restaurants, the food at Dia Xoiros was saltier than anywhere else. The restaurant is small and is family-run. We chose to sit on the inner porch, looking down at the main part of the restaurant. Maybe it was our out-of-the-way location, but we felt that the staff were not coping with the number of people in the restaurant and we were often overlooked (it took us a long time to get a second bottle of water - necessary due to all the salt).

Food was tasty and creative. Portions were generous. Service was excellent. We got to meet owners and have a long and pleasant conversation. A restaurant is uniquely decorated with lots of taste and imagination. We had Dia Xoiros salad, Grilled feta cheese with hot spicy tomato sauce, Octopus with fava & tomato sauce, Trilogy (souvlaki with mushrooms and atzem pilaf) and Mussaka. They all were delicious. We are looking forward to our next visit to Dia Xoiros.
