In our stay there, even though we had a list of restaurants we wanted to check out, we kept coming back to Akrogiali. We had a great variety of sea food, great Deserts, and the best service. Even though the place was always crowded, the staff did there best to find you a seat. They are very well organized because although the place is so crowded you never wait more then 15 minutes for your order to come. The only thing I didn't quite enjoy there was the pizza. But if I wanted a genuine pizza I should have chosen an Italian restaurant. All the sea food dishes I tried were fresh, tasty and the portions were very large. I totally recommend.

GEYSEIS Restaurant welcomes you to our brand new ,friendly and comfortable environment. The sophisticated design and European aura reflected in our dishes.Our priority is fresh ingredients from local producers of Pierian Farms and for this reason there are frozen ingredients in our kitchen. So it is worth to try our international flavors without rhetorical exaggeration in an environment that combines good food and attentive service hoping to satisfy the most demanding palates

It's a nice place and the prices are good. Only minor point for improvement is that the service was not that friendly. Pizza and pasta was tasty and Italian style. Especially pizza Italian style is hard to find in Greece. We were too full to try Deserts but their prices appear really good (euro 2.50 for tiramisu)

It's a traditional Greek restaurant with a wide selection of Mediterranean dishes. There is a selection of poultry and other meat served with local recipes along with an alternative of home made vegetarian meals. Famous for having consistent high quality variety meals at low prices throughout the years, as it already serves the local residents for over four decades.

A very nice and well decorated Bistro, which from the very first moment became one of the most beloved places in Katerini. It is located in the center of the town just across the city hall plaza. It has outdoor Seating in the plaza and for this reason it is a good choice for families with young children also. Its cuisine is mostly Italian oriented. The pizzas from its wooden oven are unique and there is also a variety of very special tastes. Bistro 49 is a very nice place for a coffee, a drink or a beer, with friends or for business.

Boukia Boukia is a MUST for the area and for people who are ready to explore unique combos of tastes. Food is inspired by Mediterranean Tastes with many influences from the Greek Islands and Pontos.
I was not the only one who got fascinated by the performance, service and prices of the places. My best French friend still talks about those dishes and no doubt once back in Katerini I will pay my visits.
