Kronos – Best soutzoukaki in town

As soon as I turned from the busy Vasilissis Olgas street and started walking onto the Vafopoulou street, I felt like I was in another city! That narrow street, full of trees, vintage stores and bookshops is probably one of the most charming little streets in the city.

Not far from the crossing with Olgas street you will notice Kronos restaurant. Kronos is a family tavern that dates back to 1961 and took its name from the historical Cine Kronos and Loutra Kronos, which used to be in the neighboring building. The folksy and rustic environment makes you feel that something unique and traditional is happening here. The decoration is based on musical instruments and vintage items that you can notice all over the place.

The most famous dish of Kronos is the “soutzoukaki”, which is actually considered the best in the city! The soutzoukaki is basically a cylindrical spiced meatball. Try also the Gyros at Kronos, it’s way above average!

I suggest you visit the tavern during the weekdays in order to avoid the crowds and actually manage to find a table.
