  • Beautiful 360 views of Thessaloniki - It completes a rotation every 60 minutes. Very relaxed enviroment. Friendly staff. Worth a visist with that special someone. Prices are very high... a basic cocktail costing between 13 - 16 euro, but entry is free so i didnt mind the tradeoff
  • Must visit place... Lounge café with live music in the evenings... Slowly moving 360° providing a beautiful scenery of the town
  • Been there in 2011. Awesome way to get a full view of Thessaloniki. The whole Caffè turns 360°.
  • A little bit expensive but you get a lot of free stuff and the view is worth every penny. Also very friendly personnel and the frappe was the best.
  • Very nice view, but 7,50€ for a domestic beer is really too much.
