It seldom happens these day's that you can sit down at a restaurant and everything runs like clockwork. The atmosphere and the food was perfect, the service even better - thank you David for being an exceptional waiter!

Delicious houlomi, dips, calamari and zucchini fries. Excellent service given by David. Very enjoyable and friendly atmosphere. It’s one of our go-to places when we need a light, delicious selection of food.

The service and food was as good as the weather on this excellent February afternoon. We did a birthday lunch at Plaka and it was a most enjoyable experience. From the tapas to the main course and the sweets, there was nothing to fault.
