Saw it on the corner and was enticed by the maître de to have a great meal. Ordered the rustic salad, the chicken gyros plate and an ouzo. Food and drink were on the table in 5 minutes. Salad was plentiful, hot and fantastic chicken gyros. The service was fast and courteous. Won't mind visiting again

Stopped here for lunch after visiting the Acropolis and winding our way through the streets. Great location, bustling and busy restaurant, nothing out of the ordinary, near identical restaurant opposite to quite entertaining to watch waiters battling it out selling the menus to customers! I had the dip selection and pita bread (very small pita bread, you'll need 2 or... More

So glad we chose this restaurant. Everything was excellent from the Meze to the mains and the drinks. Lamb chops were unbelievable and the serving size was ridiculous. I'll be back for sure.

My first poor review :( We were starving after visiting the acropolis and made a poor decision stopping here. 2 chicken gyros.... My husbands had raw chicken in it. He found it half way through. He ate pretty much around it (partly due to his hungry and party because he does eat anything) but it really put me off my... More

This was a kneejerk decision. Sun baking, stomach rumbling and we just popped in! Literally a glorified kebab place. If it didn't have the location it has, it would probably close down in no time.

Staying in Plaka

Neighbourhood Profile
Plaka
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 stay, eat and drink. Its pedestrian zones make it a pleasant place to escape from the city’s notorious traffic. Adrianou and Kidathineon Streets contain a number of souvenir shops, offering classier items than you will find in the Flea Market. The most rewarding section to explore is the upper reaches towards the Acropolis itself, where many old stone houses with tiled roofs have survived. Up here you can find leafier corners and the odd quaint taverna with unobstructed views of the ancient rock.
