The decor of this restaurant provides a relaxing environment that looks neat and hygienic- everything you want in a restaurant. Had a lovely dinner - ate something I can't pronounce or spell, but everything served at our table surely looked delicious.

I should really try something else at Plaka but the lamb chops are just amazing 🙂 Tonight I had the halva and ice-cream, very tasty! The service is also efficient and excellent, keep it up!

What a warm welcoming reception when entering the restaurant, with the fires glowing and flickering almost as if it were calling you, so to are the staff. We enjoyed the food but I think the attraction are the staff and the atmosphere.
