A first time visitor to Crete in general and Plakias in particular, I didn't know what to expect in terms of food. Vrisi has been an extremely pleasant surprise, to say the very least: fantastic views of Plakias and the bay, super friendly service, and tasty food. Much of what is cooked up is local and organic produce, which gives... More

There are no words to describe the taste of Vrisi salad. Frankly, it was not a salad, it was heaven in my mouth. The lamb and veal were great as well. Local red wine was good. The waiter took care to make the time spent in the tavern remained in our memory. Raki given after paying the bill in a... More

Tried many places around the area but went here for our last night. A little more pricey than some others but worth it as very swanky venue, amazing view, great food and service. Also a few different dishes to some others we visited.

We had the Vrisi Salad as starter (luckily we decided to share it-it is even more than a full meal) and were already totally delighted! The following lamb and tuna were even better...the best lamb I ever had and a perfectly... More

This was our favourite restaurant in the Plakias area. This made the walk up the hill worthwhile! We made the mistake on our 1st visit of ordering too much, the dishes are all substantial. The Vrisi salad was a meal in itself and 1 of the best salads we've had in Greece. Moussaka was delicious. Every dish we tried was... More

We have been on a long trip in the montains. Came to Vrisi at 4.30 PM but it was not possibel to have a drink. It was only a place for eating at this time! In the restaurant was only 4 persons and many empty tables.

The location is amazing, the service of really high level and the personnel very friendly and professional (they deserve a good tip). You can enjoy a wonderful view (I recommend to arrive before the sunset) and the food is of... More
