Very friendly service and an awesome gyro. Definitely pass by and try it. Will come back for sure. Prices are also very good and the food and selection is amazing.

Despite the cartoonish name, we did smile after having the best gyro with fast and friendly service. They were doing a tiny bit of construction but it was no nuisance. We ate inside, but they also had seating on an quiet alley.

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.

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
