About
The OTE Tower is located at the heart of the International Exhibition & Congress Centre of TIF HELEXPO in the centre of Thessaloniki. It is a television and observation tower designed by the architect Alexandros Anastasia's in 1966 that stands 76 metres tall and features four floors. It is noteworthy that the first black and white broadcasts of the Greek State Television were transmitted from this building a year after the Tower's completion. Nowadays, the OTE Tower has been totally transformed in a modern telecommunications tower. The unique design and features have rightfully earned the OTE Tower its landmark status among the many architectural marvels that punctuate Greece's cultural capital, Thessaloniki.

A pleasant experience with polite staff and a beautiful view of the city. Maybe the platters with cheese and cold cuts could be somewhat bigger.

Good food and plenty of it, we had the club sandwich and beer. The views are lovely the staff where very friendly and extremely helpful when we asked questions about places we could see in the distance. We asked about the castle we could see in the distance, our waiter told us about it (it was the old prison) and suggested we didn’t try and walk up to it. He then arranged for a taxi to collect us once we had finished.

Great view but very arrogant service. Although there were empty seats on the first row we were to sit on the inner side. That's pity since the view is amazing but the customer service is really poor

We booked using Trip Advisor and got wine with a cheese, meat and fruit platter. It was excellent value for money and all very enjoyable.

We tried two cocktails too that were well made.

The experience itself is really cool and is great for seeing all of the city.

Service was attentive throughout.

A must-try when visiting the city!

Nice in the evening great views of the city, good wine, the only slight negative the word fruit and meet platter gives an impression of something else, you get a few grapes, figs and apricots and little bits of cold cured meets but it’s nice. Only book for one unless you want 2 bottles of wine.

Nice place to drink your coffee in Thessaloniki. The tower rotates around so you can enjoy the view. A bit expensive.

Lovely place for an afternoon drink. The views of Thessaloniki are great (at least from the site of the sea). The fact that the tables are on a rotating platform is very cool and you can see the whole city from wherever you are seated. (If I remember correctly the rotation took about 1.5 hours to complete.) We visited on a Sunday afternoon/early evening and were given a window table. Most groups are given one unless they are all booked. In our case, we had no issues, as we had made a booking on the previous day but we noticed a few people coming without reservation and leaving because they couldn't get a window table.

The menu was ok, there is not a big selection of food and prices for drinks are on the high scale, however considering that there was no entry fee it wasn't too bad. Plus we were given a piece of cake to accompany our (10-euro) smoothie.
