Clochard has rightfully won the title of a classic restaurant. From 1978 it has been established in the minds of the people of Thessaloniki as the ultimate gastronomic destination of the city.

The continuous awards for over thirty years by the Quality Guide, Athinorama and the FnL Restaurant Awards are proof of its success.


Clochard’s cuisine is described as contemporary urban Greek with French influences. Fresh products, seasonal ingredients and home recipes constitute an integral part of an exceptional gastronomical experience.

he wine list with over 400 labels from both the Greek and international vineyards make this restaurant one of the top destinations for even the most discerning oenofiles.

Clochard’s team oversees daily, and with great care, the purchase of the ingredients to make sure that everything is of the best quality. The menu is defined by seasonality and changes four times a year.


In February of 1978 on Proksenou Koromila street, Clochard first opens its doors to Thessaloniki.

In the beginning the cuisine was mostly French and the space was defined by an Art Deco aesthetic. The first big change came in the beginning of the ‘90s with a change in the cuisine’s philosophy. The restaurant was a pioneer in the revival of traditional Greek recipes and dishes as well as the sourcing and use of local ingredients.

Over the years, by constantly observing the trends in the international and Greek restaurant scene it managed to stay in touch with the times.

The latest and biggest change came in September of 2021 with the transfer of the restaurant to one of the most iconic neoclassical buildings, the Hotel Excelsior. After the pandemic and in the heart of city the restaurant is now in modern environment while keeping and continuously adding to the more than forty years of history it carries.
