This small local restaurant has what amounts to 2 hot plates but serves up some of the best gyros and souvlakis in the city. The line of locals wraps around the door starting from right when it opens. A fantastic stop for authentic street cuisine!

Good quality. Not much space for hanging around. The Souflaki is excellent. You will have to wait, but what you get is real fresh.

The queue looks short but was extremely Long due to the shortage of manpower (?) It took me around 15 mins to just take my order... I didn't fancy the meat. It was hard although barbecued.

It's a tiny place and hard to eat inside. No vegetarian option for me, but my friends said it was probably the best kebab they had ever had... it's a tourist-free zone but worth checking if you want real food at a very low price......More

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
