Ta Fanarakia: Beautiful ambiance and tasty treats
I was a bit hesitant to go into this restaurant at first because I had arrived early (10PM) and it didn't seem to be busy. However, I was starving after a 7 hour bus ride in from Sofia and hunger overrules timidity. The meal was superb and the service very friendly, even if my Greek was halting and atrocious. The dining area is a huge garden with a raised covered section. Service is courteous and quick and there is a large selection (be prepared for indecision). The food is Thracian tavern food, heavily skewed toward meats although fish and some vegetarian options are served. Complete with traditional music, this tavern is a wonderful and colourful experience in the heart of the old quarter.
Favorite Dish: I had kokoretsi - lamb offal stuffed into lamb intestines and baked. I generally avoid offal in Canada like the plague, but it was still quite tasty.
"TA TEMPH TOY NESTOY" Restaurant
For twenty years this tavern is the point of report of visitors of narrow Nestos. Placed in the entry of this beautiful environment it has accepted thousands visitors. The family Thefilaktou for two generations keeps the delivery and maintains in high levels the service but also the quality of dishes. Delicious food and very friendly staff. Don't miss it.

A Tasty Look at Xanthi
In Xanthi, food is not simply good. It is particular. Local cuisine has been influenced by the Asia Minor culture. Dishes are prepared with love, according to long-standing, traditional recipes that will certainly fascinate you. It is worthwhile to savour – and buy – sucuk lokum. Its preparation reflects the patience, care and skills of the confectioner who holes each walnut, pass a string through it and syrups it. Local traditional oriental desserts such as “saragli” (rolled phyllo, buttered and filled with walnuts and honey) and “kataifi” (shredded nut pastry) are unbeatable. Moreover, the tas kebab dish is hard to find anywhere else. At the cooperatives of Xanthi, you can purchase hand-crafted pasta, preserves and jams made from local raw materials. Succumb to this world of taste temptations and you won’t regret it!

Be careful if you come late from tavernas...
It is the wall of a restaurant of the city. It's written: "I'll stop drinking wine", and the reply: "(Take this, the pepper) to learn not to say bad words"...
The housewife is... waiting for her husband, who came so late, at sunrise...
