My wife and I ate here one night and the giant gyros were great. The price was reasonable and the service was good.

We enjoyed our lunch. Actually had a fair amount of food for the price. Everyone working there was super friendly and the atmosphere was relaxed. The kids had fun decorating rocks. Will be back on our next visit.

We went there as it was recommended. The food was so delicious and the service was lovely. It was such great value as well! When in Greece you need to try Gyros and this is defs the place to go!

My husband and I ordered the gyros (1 chicken & 1 pork). Both were huge and delicious! The meals also came with a salad, dessert, & wine or water--all for just 10 euros. All was good. We then also ordered the Greek donuts & they were awesome! Service was good too (Zoe). Definitely recommend!

You get what you pay for. The owner constantly told us how good each dish is before serving, it made us wonder if they had tried it themselves. When the restaurant has a 'crisis menu' you have to wonder if the restaurant has gone down hill and is suffering. This was easily our worst meal in Athens. Avoid

We had a late dinner here on our last night in Athens, and it was the best decision. The food was great and well priced (check out the crisis menu). We ordered grilled calamari, the slow cooked lamb, grilled fish, a doner gyro, dessert, with drinks and salad for everyone and I think it was around 60 euro. Everything was... More

Staying in Thissio / Makriyanni

Neighbourhood Profile
Thissio / Makriyanni
Named after the well-preserved Thission (ancient temple of Hephaestus), Thissio is blessed with a small wooded park and some less frenetic streets that offer numerous quieter places to stay and eat. Largely pedestrianised Apostolou Pavlou Street runs between the Acropolis and forested Filopappou Hill, well worth climbing for more great panoramas, until it merges with Dionysiou Areopagitou Street. This leads to the up-and-coming area of Makriyanni, whose centrepiece is the magnificent new Acropolis Museum. Opposite the museum is the entrance to the southern slopes of the Acropolis, while the eponymous metro station nearby is at the top of Makriyanni Street, another strip of touristic cafés and restaurants.
