Opsopion Magganie put Thessaloniki on the map for all steak lovers. Now part of the team behind this success moved to L’Albero in the urban hood of Caravan Saray. And they’re killing it!

Casual and welcoming ambience, juicy steaks and great prices.

We visited on a weekday evening in an attempt to corroborate whatever everyone else was whispering about this small Thessaloniki outpost in the last few months. Word on the street is that the couple who owned Opsopion may have parted ways but Dimitris has done a remarkable job at launching something fresh and tasty.

The menu is quite lengthy so you’ll definitely find something you like. More so if you’re into a sharing mood as most portions are big enough. We devoured the Greek salad that came with haroupi rusks and really enjoyed the heavy but super tasty linguine with gorgonzola and mushrooms. However, we didn’t get a chance to have the camembert which looked also pretty funky and goey!

The seating was very comfortable for such a small space and the lush backyard was perfect for a crisp September night out. The team has artfully decorated an otherwise blind spot at the back of the restaurant and with the help of warm lighting and some chilled music vibes they transformed this into such a pleasant space.

For main we went for both pork and beef. The Tomahawk steak was grilled to perfection with juicy bits in between, served with boiled potatoes that were seasoned with paprika and finished in the oven. The butcher’s steak was also very very tender, came in medium rare (as ordered) and was very succulent. Although the service recommended that we get the cast iron skillet in case we wanted to finish off our steak, we opted not to. In the end the meat became a bit cold, but still was very tasty. Overall the meat was quite herby which made it a bit too much for those wishing to have big portions of it, but the quality was still very good.

Hats off to a great start – we will definitely be back.
