“Authentic Greek downtown”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2013

Real taste of Greek cuisine. Appreciated also by locals. Ideal for tourists, near Syntagma Square. Offers lunch and dinner. Book first, sometimes it gets crowded.

“Could have been better”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2012 via mobile

Ok menu. Slightly different than typical taverna. Slow, forgetful service. Clearly used to under-serving tourists. Too bad.

“Off the tourist strip”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2012

Recommended by a Greek friend who had lived in Athens for several years. Good food and atmosphere and away from (but not by much) the restaurant strip along lower Adrianou Street, Monastiraki which caters to a broad range of clients and lots of tourists. Tzitsikas kai Mermigas provided reliable quality and friendly service without the need for touts outside to hassle passers by to come in to eat. Good for a first night in town meal and then one to come back to after venturing further afield.

“Not up to its usual standards”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2012

I have been to this restaurant several times in the past and I was always very satisfied.
Tried it again about 1 or 2 weeks ago. It was not as good.
The food came in after 1h of ordering it
The microwave effect on the food was very much present
the waiters were always in a hurry

Maybe it was the fact that it was a ver busy day, but all in all the experience was below average. For the money we spent we could have gone somewhere else.

“Delicious dishes, quick service, nice environment, centrally located”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 25, 2012

We visited twice Tzitzikas kai Mermigas on December 2012 during Christmas Holidays.
We always found a table available even without booking.
Most dishes are very nice, with outstanding performance for the "Mastichato" (Chicken bits with masticha sauce on a crunchy base!), the sala and the "Graviera" (cheese with honey and sesame). Try it!
