During our 2014 trip we noticed that a new gyros restaurant had opened in the Old Village since our last visit in 2011. It is called “Gyros of the Village,” and it is operated by a very nice young man named Sokrates (pictured to your right). We were inspired to stop there one day to order some chicken gyros to take home for lunch, and we found the quality of the food to be simply excellent! Over the course of our stay we purchased carry out food from Sokrates several times, and in each instance the meals were delicious. Also note that the price per gyro was very reasonable.
In addition to gyros, Sokrates sells chicken and pork souvlaki, salads, and other foods. Menu options include gyros and souvlaki plates that offer very good size portions. While we chose to take food home with us, the restaurant also has many tables for those customers who prefer to dine onsite. Because of our very positive experiences at “Gyros of the Village,” we will be sure to visit this restaurant again many times during our next visit to Alonnisos.
