Will be in Athens this weekend

I'm leaving tomorrow night, but i was hoping to get some last minute suggestions for restaurants in athens. Hoping for a few moderately priced restaurants for dinner (or a little expensive, but nothing ridiculous), and a few cheaper places that would be fun for lunch. And if there's a must-go in terms of Gyros, pleeeeeeeeeeeeaaaaaaaaase tell me.

  1. For gyros, just go to Monastiraki square and pick one. I was never able to figure out which of the half dozen or so gyro places were best. Try them all! There are some hole-in-the-wall places on side streets also - and I did go to a few - but I could never remember which streets or tell you how to get there. Enjoy!

    1. I can't remember streets either, but my favorite gyro was at a place called sabbas in plaka. You can't go wrong with a hole in the wall with a line.
