“We went once..”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2012

We went once for a couple of souvlakia.
We saw people in the line and thought to try it too, but we were not satisfied. We recommend you to try the local tavernas.
We are Greek and we know about souvlaki.

“Delicious souvlaki...well worth a visit...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2011

I read about this place on several sites talkinkg about Koufonisia.Souvlaki is the greek version of fast food. It is meat of some sort, beef, lamb, pork or 'unknown combination' that is on a giant vertical rotisserie. Usually is served inside a pita (pita souvlaki), sort of grilled bread together with tomatoes, onions and tsatsiki.We went to souvlaki Sti Strofi at night. it is in the Chora, close to Melissa restaurant. You can recognize it by the tiny window from which you made the order and the huge line of people waiting to get served.Being a fast food concept of meal, there is no service. You pick the food to take away or have to eat on the street. There are few tables in front of the souvlakerie that you can use but of course it is a fast meal, you cannot think to sit down as if it was a proper dinner.The menu is written on a little blackboard. You read it, queue, and when it's your turn, look inside the tiny window and place your order to the lady who is inside.It is difficult to read the menu when it's dark and is written in english and greek. So you can find it here below:the menu consists of souvlaki kalamaki (lamp skewers), pita gyros (sort of kebab served inside typical greek grilled bread), pita souvlaki (other kind of meat still similar to kebab), pita kebab (kebab served inside pita), pita lukaniko (pita with sausage inside), pita chicken, patates (french fries), beer and other refreshment... if you look inside you'll see a tiny room with 2 guys cooking hot dogs on the grill and composing pita souvlaki. The food looked delicious and after consulting the menu we ordered 1 pita souvlaki with chicken, one pita souvlaki with sausage, 1 portion of french fries (delicious cause are hand cut!) and 1 portion of souvlaki kalamaki, lamp skewer served with a slice of bread.It was delicious and tasty. The pita lukaniko and pita chichen both had inside onions, tomatoes, tsatsiki sauce, french fries and were so delicious that we bought 2 more and more french fries...the food is pre cooked in the adjacent building and we noticed the guys going up and down with huge bowls of tomatoes and onions to refill the sovlakerie and also an old lady sat on the street peeling and cutting potatoes.the prices are just ridiculous...we loved this place and would definitely come back..authentic, delicious and cheap!
