The meat was tasty but they burnt / overcooked the lamp. They extra charge the dishes. Too much expensive.

We had a great dinner and everything we ordered was excellent. I have to comment though the honest behavior of the staff. There was a mistake and we were charged more than we should but we didn't notice it and left. The waiter realized the error and was searching for us all over the place to find us on the... More

Unfortunately they had run out of meat for a pita gyros but the souvlaki pitas we had were just as good. The restaurant was busy, we sat outside and the atmosphere was lively. The staff were very welcoming and friendly.

If you want a really good value grill, this is the place. The portions are very large and the food very well cooked. It's a grill house and doesn't pretend to be anything other than that. A great place for people watching.

delicious kebabs and whole spit roast lamb on Thursday nights not to be missed if you want some traditional greek meat. Lunch say of a falafel wrap for her ladyship and a big fat mixed kebab for me with two mythos beers for 10 euros. Cannot beat it.

We were staying nearby and decided to try out this grill house. The venue was extremely busy and unfortunately this made the service rather slow. The four of us all had different meals but we all thought the quality of the food was only average. I had the burgers but certainly wouldn't recommend them. Probably wouldn't go back.

Gyros had a weird flavor. The potatoes were fried, not homemade. The prices were reasonable. 2,20 euros for a pita gyro (small size). They offered us loukoums for desert and that made everything about right.

Pork pita was good minus the dry french fries on top. Salad and tzatziki were nice. The service was fine, but we felt like the owner just wanted us to eat, pay and leave. Not friendly when we tried to ask questions and didn't respond when we said goodbye as we left. It wasn't even busy when we were there.... More

I Gonia ton Gefseon has possibly the best location in Paleochoran for being in the center of things at night. Pappa makes undoubtedly one of the best grilled lamb chop dishes you will ever taste - spiced perfectly and charcaol grilled, yet succulent and totally moist and tender. The same thing can be said for the Lamb Souvlaki. A souvlaki... More
