Very straightforward place, you go there get your food and go! They have a small bench in front of it in case you want to eat there. It was the most delicious souvlaki we had during our Athens trip.

Even though you have to wait normally on line you can enjoy the best souvlaki. The red sauce is something special. I also tried the bifteki that is also tasty. Traditional greek that you must try

This little store offers simple, traditional souvlaki to die for. Arrived at the store around midday to be greeted by a long line of customers but was served within 15 minutes. Had a small menu of 2 food items (excluding drinks) - souvlaki or kalamaki...More

Authentic, not pretentious, cheap, and full of flavour, this feels like the people's souvlaki and leaves you wanting for more. And more.

Great place to grab some souvlaki when you're wandering around Plaka. There seems to always be a line out the door, so I wouldn't call it "fast" food if you're looking for something quick and don't have time to wait.

Thank TravelGalAng
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

pleasant place to escape from the city’s notorious
traffic. Adrianou and Kidathineon Streets contain a
