I had so many gyros that I have to say this one was ok without it making a lasting impression. Service was satisfactory. Pricing was average. I would take it or leave it.

The quality of the ingredients was good and the service was fast. It's a nice place for a quick lunch or snack.

Tasy, juicy, hot! Incredible food very close to Syntagma. Worth the wait if you are in the busy hours.

FYI, not open again until Aug 25! Headed there for lunch and saw the note on a dusty door. Luckily I passed by Tzitzikas & Mermigas on the way and had a super lunch, highly recommend!

No tables, and just a bench outside. But tons of locals grabbing their lunch there. It's only 2.3 Euro for a wrap (beef or pork - I thought the beef was better), so grab one for your walk for some nice touring energy.

very small, very nice souvlaki! It's different than others and also popular amongst locals! It's only open till somewhere in the afternoon, it's in a very small and narrow street. If you're in the neighbourhood, try it! Cheap and great!

I asked for a chicken stick souvlaki and they gave me one with pork without telling me that they dont have chicken. Also, they didnt put tzatziki to the wrap even though asked. I feel that as soon as a place becomes popular the owners lose motivation and do not provide the best service.

We went here to get a great lunch based on the reviews here and we were not disappointed. We had two souvlaki, one beef one pork, a beer and a bottled water all for under €7. The beef souvlaki was the best and the vegetables and sauce were very fresh. Will do again when in Athens!

After an early morning visit to the acropolis we headed here right after it opened to beat the crowds and get our souvlaki fix. we went with one pork and one beef, while both were good we definitely preferred the beef. the yogurt and fresh chopped parsley really made this stand out compared to other souvlaki we had on our...

Staying in Plaka

Neighborhood Profile
Due to its proximity to the Acropolis, Plaka remains the area where the majority of foreign visitors stay and play. Its attractive features include small squares, some notable museums and the beautiful Mitropolis cathedral, as well as a host of places to stay, eat and drink. Its pedestrian zones make it a pleasant place to escape from the city’s notorious traffic. Adrianou and Kidathineon Streets contain a number of souvenir shops, offering classier items than you will find in the Flea Market. The most rewarding section to explore is the upper reaches towards the Acropolis itself, where many old stone houses with tiled roofs have survived. Up here you can find leafier corners and the odd quaint taverna with unobstructed views of the ancient rock.
