Nice family traditional tavern. Well known for its huge portions. Highlight of the place the free fried greek donuts with honey or chocolate they serve in the end. Only disadvantage is that sometimes you have to wait a lot to get a table.

A great tavern to visit! Excellent service, lovely atmosphere, great food! A very satisfying experience. And imagine I'm not a 'tavern' person. Portions are large and I would advice you not to order many side dishes. Also, the place is always packed and they don't make reservations so be prepared to wait a bit.

Myrtia offers the full Greek taverna experience. Cozy place, nice music, friendly staff and most importantly, amazing food. While Myrtia is more expensive than the average tavern (around 20 euros per person) the size of the portions is huge. We have visited the place at least 5 times and not even once could we eat everything that was on the... More

Everything is literally delicious! You must try the lamb chops, tyropites, and tyrokauteri!! Anything you try is very tasty. The staff is friendly and efficient. The service is quick even when they are fully booked. They also give you the most delicious loukoumades covered in chocolate after dinner!

We stopped by this taverna with some damily friends from Nea Smyrni on Sunday evening. You can order (and probably should order) in a classic sharing style, which we did. We got generous portions of assorted meats, bread, stuffed cheese items, fries, salads and desserts. My favorite item, something I've never actually seen before, was fried tyropita. Absolutely amazing. As... More

This is a nice tavern in the Nea Smyrni district of Athens, south of the Acropolis. If you are staying nearby, it is worth a visit. The portions are generous, and the service efficient. We had a few appetizers, including deep fried tyropita - very tasty. We also had some other fried cheesy items, but none were as good as... More

Just take any tram line from Syntagma square to the "Aghia Paraskevi" station, it's a mere 15-25 minutes ride. Portions are huge, quality excellent and the service very friendly. As a matter of fact, one should decide between appetizers and main course, as it is difficult to accommodate both. Prices are low, sweets are offered when one asks for the... More
