“Tasty and authentic Greek food!”
Reviewed February 2, 2014

If you are looking for good, tasty and real Greek food, then you should try Nikitas. Probably the only authentic "mayirio" in the centre of Athens, the restaurant is located in the centre of Psiri neighbourhood. Friendly service is a plus.

They could improve their dinnerware to get a 5/5...

“This place is a find very close to the Plaka and the Acropolis”
Reviewed August 27, 2013

We have eaten at this family run eatery over a dozen times and each time we go we can't wait to go back. It is one of the hidden treasures of downtown Athens. The food is home cooked and exceptional, I commented to the waitress that it is rare to find this quality in downtown Athens where every place seems to cater to tourists. She said they try their best and boy do they succeed. Try the beets, anything that they have with eggplant and anything with veal. Their black eyed peas are delicious and so are their grilled meats, You will not leave hungry but your pocket will thank you for the reasonable prices. Make sure you try some of the micro brew beers that they have available.

“Eat like the Greeks”
Reviewed August 19, 2013

Eat at Nikitas if you want tasty simple authentic Greek food, served in a relaxed casual atmosphere by the family which owns and runs the place. We live in Athens, and eat here almost weekly, because we enjoy the wide variety of dishes on offer, which are prepared well and priced even better. As vegetarians, we are pleased that we can eat as heartily as our meat-loving friends, who also happily savor the tasty meat dishes on offer. After dining here once, you too may wish you could make it one of your local haunts, one of those simple places that becomes a part of your life.

“great fresh food and cheap”
Reviewed May 23, 2013

The cheese pie was great and homemade, great souvlaki and burgers! The service is really good and quick. Prices are quite normal. If you are strolling the streets of Psirri you should definately try it.
