Another place to eat in Athens which is just... meh. Surely a little hole in the wall that has been around since 1950 something would be excellent I thought, however this was flawed thinking. After waiting in line for twenty minutes (probably short by others...More

They serve really nice souvlaki pita in town. You may need to queue for a while but it's really worth spending time there to have this delicious quick bite!

Tiny place which can contain around 6 people to eat souvlaki inside but dozens others possibly queuing, well aware of the spot ! Tasty souvlaki and kalamaki, for 2€ each, and very smiling staff (Maria) on top of it. Finish the whole with a 0,5€...More

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

pleasant place to escape from the city’s notorious
traffic. Adrianou and Kidathineon Streets contain a
