I love Karava's, I've been there about 4 times now. I've had the same waitress each time who's an absolute sweetheart. You really do feel like you stepped into Greece for a night and are taken care of by people who want to give you...More

I have been going here for Gyros on visits to nyc for years now. They have the real thing, and the tzatziki is quite good. Service was good again, with a smooth hand-off from one waitress to another coming off break. Sit by a window...More

Sunday June 29th, 2014 ~5pm. We found ourselves in the village right after the Pride Parade. The streets were bustling and people are hungry. Perfect setting for a restaurant, right? Oh boy was I wrong. When we got to the door, it was locked. We...More

We found this place by accident. I ordered all my faves - dolmades, pita, tzaziki (yum!) and they were all delicious. The lentil soup was good. My husband had gyros and said it was the best he's ever had. We will definitely go again.

The initial appearance might make you run away, but give it a chance. We had hummus and pita to start and it was some of the best that I have ever had. The yeiro platter was okay with really good lamb. The "large" salad is...More

The food at the restaurant was so good that I would make a trip from 231st street in the Bronx all the way down for a $8 gyro. I was raised on Greek comfort food, so eating here was always a treat, especially when I...More

Great, great, great greek food, We hopped in there for a lunch after walking around the city all morning. It wasn't busy at all. The food was modestly priced, and man was there a lot of it. The gyros are PACKED with meat and flavor....More

West Village
Stretching from Sixth Avenue to the Hudson River, the
West Village is one of the city’s most coveted
addresses. Full of trendy shops, historic taverns, and
cozy restaurants set amid 19th century architecture,
this neighbourhood has a unique old-world feel. You
won’t find a more picturesque location in Manhattan.
Without the traditional city grid layout, it’s easy to
get lost here, but that’s part of the fun as you
