We were advised by our Greek friends that this was the best souvlaki in Athens. It was delicious! The fries were not as good as some others we had and the mousaka wasn't the best we had. However, the souvlaki lived up to the reputation...More

We had the best Greek salad of our trip here. The Freddo cappuccinos were also very yummy! We also had a kebab and yogurt dish that was very good but I can’t recall the name. This place was affordable and had great service.

Great kebab, low prices, easy access (next to Monastiraki metro station). The prices are a bit high if you get the big portion, but you can always get a kebab in pita, which is quite cheap. One of the best kebap in Athens

Was recommended this place by a local and was definitely not disappointed... The portions were large and the kebabs were juicy. It was quite crowded the day we went but got a place outdoors... Service was ok

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

Yes you can. You should ask for souvlaki with pita. Not a whole plate. It's by pieces. For example 3 kebab on pita not a plate of kebab.!!!

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