"Soulvaki/Gyro advise" Greece Favorite Tip by bebegringa26

Greece General: 655 reviews and 611 photos

Favorite thing: I'm not sure about Mykonos but I can speak for Athens, Santorini & the Peloponnese. The cheapest meal is a soulvaki/gyro to go. Make sure you get it to go. It should only cost between 1.80-2.50 Euros. Most of the ones I ate cost me 1.80 Euros. If you eat it at the restaurant, they triple charge you and it can range from 8-12 Euros for the same meal. Crazy!!

Also, you can get Panini sandwiches for a decent price like 2.50-3.50 Euros. They look like french bread sandwiches and then they press them in a sandwich presser. Those are good on the go.

Sorry I can't answer your questions about the cheapest restuarants.

P.S. At restaurants they charge you for bread. Usually 1.50 per person. For two that adds up. Make sure you tell them "no bread".

Hope this helps!
