This was the gyro for a Euro(s) I was looking for! As my first meal upon arrival to Athens, WOW. Not to mention the staff was friendly and helpful! Deliciously perfect & exactly what I needed. Kebabs also looked amazing!

This is a marvelous place, if you want a nice place to taste Greek dishes with effective service and reasonable prices, at the area of Monastoraki, which is a must in Athens.

Monastiraki is a souvenir-hunting enclave with a
difference. Apart from the dramatic backdrop of the
Acropolis, its network of alleys and pedestrianized
streets surround the remains of both the Greek and
Roman agoras, adding the quaint concept that this is
where the ancients also came to shop. Named after the
tiny monastery church at its center, Monastiraki
Square is a lively spot by day or night, with street

You do not need reservation but if you prefer to eat outside you might have to wait a few minutes.
