A guide to the best restaurants in Nea Moudania
Restaurants in Nea Moudania serve inexpensive, real Greek cuisine of a high quality. Whether you’re eating at a marina-side diner with sea views or in the traditional main square, the obvious option is seafood, brought in fresh to the large harbour. Grilled meats and salads can also be seen on many a table, accompanied by tasty sides such as tzatziki. Lots of the restaurants get involved in the July Sardine Festival, serving free samples of the delicious fish with local white wine. Don’t worry if you’re not on holiday to Greece then, as sardines can be sampled all summer in eateries across town.
