You cannot miss the building and it's arty exterior. It is definitely Insta-worthy (if you are that way inclined). The lady who served me was friendly and patient when I practised speaking Greek with her. We had a lovely conversation and she told me about...some of the history of the area! The pita gyros was delicious and packed full of meat. I sat on one of the little tables in front of the shop, but opposite there are some cushions for people to sit in in the shade. Lovely food, lovely lady, lovely location. Highly recommended!More

Excellent quality of food, nice location at the famous old byzantine church in center of Kalamata inmidst the vivid life of this beautiful city. They offer plates as well as only the Souvlaki, Pita and salads. The service is extremely friendly for a very busy...'fast food place.More

I went there and had a pita gyros 🥙 pork for €2.40. Unbeatable price but the pork was a little overdone and chewy. However the price is unbeatable and if you want a quick cheap meal you should definitely go here. The owner is nice...and chatty and when there was a band playing on the square he gave them free water which was a nice gesture.More

Are you in Kalamata and you want to taste little piece of heaven? Oh yeah, this is the place! Souvlaia o Tzimis is a place which will show you perfect souvlaki, perfect gyros and everything prepared in small, tiny place with soul. We didnt expect...much, we were just hungry and when we sit and order, suddenly we knew that this is THE place. Souvlaki was perfect, fresh, tasty, Gyros the same. Would love to come back again. And again!More

A neat place to have a casual souvlaki with pita and a soda or beer. Located right in the old historical center of Kalamata next to an ancient chapel. Sit outside on the stone walls and feed some to the pigeons. Love to take visitors...to Kalamata here, and it is right next to the local Museum.More
