Spring & sunny weekends are here, so it’s time for me to suggest my favourite tavern by the sea. The name is quite strange as the place itself. “The waitress vanishes behind the curtain” in short “Waitress” in greek “Servitora”. You got confused ? No need. All you need to know is how to get there. You take the road to the airport and then continue to N.Epivates. Go right from the main road and when you get to the sea just walk a bit or ask around for the place. It is best to go by car, but a bus will also take you there eventually… Starting next month the boats from the Port to Peraia will probably also stop there so you can combine a swim with some great food & drink.
The food is really fresh and delicious, and the prices are very good. The earlier you get there the better chances for a nice table in front of the sea. Enjoy !
Where : Kountouriotou, N. Epivates
Thermi is one of the city suburbs, located 15 km southeast of Thessaloniki. It is a residential as well as industrial area. It is very close to the airport and the The Science Center and Technology Museum “NOESIS”. In the area you will also find many shopping malls, big stores, schools, and the Technological Park of Thessaloniki.
One of the most interesting and beautiful places in Thermi is Fragma. Fragma means barrier and it refers to the water barrier that is built there allowing a lake to form. The surrounding area is a natural park with ducks on the lake. It is ideal for a relaxing weekend coffee or walk in the park. There is a nice coffee restaurant overlooking the lake, so you can sit there, or have your own picnic anywhere you like.
What is really special about Fragma is the concerts and special events that take place there, throughout the year, weather permitting.
September is the month of the big concerts, when people are back to the city from their vacations, and cannot stay inside their homes. So, what better excuse to go back in nature than to enjoy an open air concert by the lake.
Last night was the first concert of the season and it was really big ! Miltos Pashalidis, Christos Thivaios, Vassilis Papakonstantinou. 3 big names of the Greek music scene appeared in one single night, offering 4 hours of non stop live music and creating a unique atmosphere for all of us who were there !
Keep an eye on ipolistonkosmo.gr for the latest event listings and when you see an event at Fragma, don’t miss it!
Tip: Always have a jacket with you because the temperature there is much cooler than in the city !
