1995Two friends that share the same love for good food, Panayiotis Mazarakis and Tasos Dimas, exploit their knowledge in the foodstuffs sector and establish the first restaurant “Tzitzikas & Mermigkas” in Ano Patisia. They brought in fashion the “grocery-style decoration”, with cans and jars on shelves, old advertisements of products and the classic tables with cutlery drawer. They collected recipes from various places around Greece, chose the best raw materials and begun to creatively develop the tried and tested, beloved to all of us Greek cuisine!
1998The second restaurant opens in Halandri. A historic tavern of pre-war Greece “Ta Kalamia” is converted into a beautiful restaurant signed by the awarded set designer Eleni Manolopoulou. The restaurant is surrounded by a beautiful garden ideal for moments of freshness and relaxation.
2006Next station was Syntagma. Tzitzikas & Mermigkas’ popularity motivated the creation of a restaurant in the heart of Athens. Not only our Greek friends but foreign visitors both from abroad and the rest of Greece as well quickly made it a favorite culinary haunt.
2008Our continuously increasing clientele led us to create a restaurant in the center of Kifisia. At the quiet pedestrian street Drosini, next to the shopping center, we found the suitable place for the new Tzitzikas & Mermigkas.
