Great food, including the original, authentic Greek souvlaki at an affordable price. Has an element of a "fast food place" but the food is far from being a "fast food" type food. Great place for an informal lunch or dinner. Great value too!

I've spent a lot of time in Greece and while I wouldn't call Plaka fully authentic, it's damn close! The place is nothing fancy but the food and service are excellent! The Melitzanosalata was great, calamari was perfectly cooked and the Lamb Kapama was De-freaking-Lish
