We liked that each item on the menu had a picture. However, this was not able to compensate that the food was at best average. Tomato’s were over ripe, salad was drowning in olive oil, and the Saganaki (fried cheese) was not good at all....More

Traditional souvlaki restaurant.Very good location, limited choice (Gyros,kebap, doner, souvlaki etc.).The service can be improved. The pita bread is oily but the kebab is great.

difference. Apart from the dramatic backdrop of the
Acropolis, its network of alleys and pedestrianized
streets surround the remains of both the Greek and

tiny monastery church at its center, Monastiraki
Square is a lively spot by day or night, with street
