Olive Oil & Oregano Mediterranean Grill (Thessaloniki, Greece)
Aristotelous 20 / Ermou 51, Thessaloniki 54621, Greece, T: 231-022-3333
According to its own website, “Olive Oil & Oregano is the most successful open kitchen Mediterranean grill house in Greece.” It has locations in Greece, Bulgaria, Cyprus, Germany, and the UK. It offers traditional Greek dishes, such as gyros, Souvlaki and Greek salads. It looks slick and upscale.
I get the Gyros Plate (€6.90) with one Souvlaki stick (€1.30), Tzatziki (€1.50) and a Coke Zero (€1.30). The souvlaki is quite dry (not fresh from the grill), while the gyros is extremely fat. The fries are soggy and the pita dry. The salad and tzatziki are ok, but the latter is ridiculously large and overpriced.
I would avoid this chain in Greece, as there are much better and cheaper options. If they have the same quality outside of Greece, it’s a fine option, but not special.
