The bread is soft, tomato is fresh and tasty, great match with the grilled meat. White sauce and parsley go very well. Combination is amazing. I'd love to visit again.

Souvlaki is ok, fresh, it’s good but nothing extraordinary. You have to queue up for at least 20-30 minutes, a bit disorganised line, don’t know if it worth the wait. Price is good, it’s quite cheap, 2 euros the sovlaki.

Be prepared to wait. There was a reasonable queue when I turned up but I got in the door after ten minutes. Then I was staggered to find my wait delayed by a further thirty five minutes. There were only three people in front of...More

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
