Having tasted a lot souvlaki in particular in the area of Athens, i believe that Kostas' souvlaki is the best. Despite the fact that it is situated in the center of Athens and someone might deem it as touristic, the quality of this traditional greek fast food is excellent. It is cooked by the traditional recipe. I won't comment neither... More

Great for a short snack. We had a long line in December but it was worth the wait. They just have one option for Souvlaki.

Just for peoples information, this is not the right Kostas, and many if the photos are wrong!! and this is not the best souvlaki in Athens. Many of the photos here with an old grandpa making souvlaki with the store name: ΚΩΣΤΑ is not the one reviewed here. There are two restaurants named the same but... one of them is... More

Just to set things straight. This is a place you go for a take away/standing up dream-souvlaki. There is nothing else to order. I know this place since 1962, as a high school young man eating souvlaki from Kostas (the grandfather of today’s Kostas) in Andrianou str at that time. Believe me, today after all these years that Kostas has... More

This place appears to be absolutely nothing from the street. I'm actually surprised to see some of the Tripadvisor pictures because I don't even remember seeing a menu, etc. We basically walked in, the guy made us a gyro (we thought that was the only thing you could order), and we took a seat on some stairs down the street...

It was worth the walk to get there. We were not disappointed. It's strange to order eat then pay but it works for them. They had a lineup out the door and they still managed to take our order and bring us food in less than 20 minutes. They also timed it so we got our 3rd sandwich right after... More

Once you choose your meal from a greco/english menu you are lost in translation!!! Place is bustling with locals coming in and out, being served a bit without any particular order... Nevertheless if you are in Thens, relax cause you're probably on vacation and have all the time in the world. Just enjoy all the mouthwatering aromas coming from the... More

Went to get a real souvlaki yesterday from Kostas after having not such a good one from other recommended location the day before. These souvlakis really do taste as good as everyone says. I am not a huge fan of pork but these were so tasty and fresh that I could have had more than one. Sat outside on the... More

It was the most tasty souvlaki we had in Athens. We had 3 souvlaki in pita and 2 beers for 11 euros! It's a tiny little place, not easy to find.
