we ve had a great dinner time at this place with a stunning view of the acropolis at night. they treat us as kings and the service and flavor way beyond expectations!
the site looks modern, and the terrace so beautiful, and the best, prices were right!!!
Lunch here for the first time.
It is considered a good budget restaurant and we came here out of curiosity mostly to see if we find other tastes much better than the other two competitive restaurants of Thanasis and Bairaktaris.
Even though the restaurant was almost full, the service was quick. It did not take long to see our order on the table.
Since it was quite hot, we did not want to eat that much that day, but we did not want as well to try the usual gyros or kebab similar to the ones of the neighboring restaurants with all the peeled onions on top. For this reason we thought to try the Yiaourtlou dish. (Kebab topped with yogurt and sweet paprika powder)
Since portions seemed too big for that moment we ordered 2 half ones for €6.00 each. We also had 3 Cokes for €1.50.
The quality and presentation were good so we shall be back the next time for more and perhaps try another dish this time.
Another place in souvlaki row, Savvas is cheap and good and fast. I ate a grilled plate which included pork, lamb, and chicken, fries, and grilled tomatoes ... cost was 10 Euro's for the plate, soda's was 1.5 Euro. Same as Thanasis it's fast, good and cheap....English menu's are also available....
It's hard to go to Greece and not try your hand at authentic Greek fastfood. There are a lot of places that sell souvlaki, gyros and various pittes, and a lot of times the food is reheated or excessively cheap, leaving you with a bad taste afterwards. Savvas is not just picturesque (at the end of the Ermou shopping district and amid the restaurants at the meting of Mitropolous and Monastiraki) but all the food is very fresh. The restaurant is also very clean and you have the option of taking away or eating there.
Favorite Dish Chicken gyro (gyros kotopoulo) is to die for... there's pretty much no fat on the all white meat gyro.
The best souvlaki with gyros at 'Savvas' in Monastiraki and for special dinner 'DeLuxe' at Makrygianni. For the best fresh fish at the fishermens at Keratsini.
Favorite Dish Souvlaki everywhere and cooked specialities in the tavernas inside the meet market at Athinas street.
