COOKING OF THE HEART GIVES THIS
CITY A SPECIAL PULSE
Makedonia Palace and its award-winning executive chef
Sotiris Evangelos, welcome you to an unforgettable dining experience.
Chef Sotiris Evangelou walked through the kitchen door of Makedonia Palace, holding the smallest but most authentic recipe notebook in his hands. It had just four words: Cooking of the Heart. From that first day until today, countless breakfasts, meals, and tasty evenings have passed. The recipe, however, remains unchanged, though the dishes it transforms into are endless.
Following the rhythm of the four seasons and their products, his culinary approach is based on fresh, local produce from every corner of Macedonia. This is the only way authentic Greek cuisine becomes a reality - and a dish. Only in this way can a restaurant become intimate, with warmth and coziness, without the barriers and banalities of a typical hotel restaurant.

Makedonia Palace’s gastronomic focal point is the Salonica Restaurant. Here, from the beginning of breakfast at 7 am until late at night, the taste has no "musts." But it does have inspiration, freshness, and of course, confidence in the chef. Especially when, instead of consulting the menu, a guest, while meeting him in the dining hall, gives him a tasty carte blanche asking him to "prepare whatever he wants." A destination awarded with two consecutive “Toques d’Or” in 2020 and 2021 as the city's top restaurant, as well as the corresponding distinction from the Greek Cuisine Awards 2022.
From a goat prepared in the pot and a wine-roasted wild boar to fresh fish, good ingredients are cooked in every way: grilled, steamed, roasted, stewed, or fried. Their different versions reveal the aspects of a tradition with character and aesthetics that we all ought to discover.
For the locals, every visit is a journey through the memories of the traditional family Sunday table. For the visitors, it is an authentic experience and a study of Greek gastronomic culture. For everyone, it is a delightful reference to Thessaloniki’s culinary past. The cooking of the heart has found its home and ideal exponent.
You don’t need to travel all the way to Italy to experience the authentic Italian cuisine. The art of pizzaiolo comes to life right before your eyes while pasta fresca constitutes the most tasty “alternative” to pizza.
