Medousa is the new kid on the block in Plakias. We visited on 4 occasions and each time the food was perfect and the service good. The range and quality of the dishes was excellent from traditional greek (with a twist) to Italian pasta and risottos. Well worth a visit

We ate here once and had a lovely meal, modern kitchen and food hygiene standards noted, food beautifully presented and tasty. Their menu is a little different to others so worth a visit. However the main impression is whilst it pertains to be upmarket it was unbearably hot with no outdoor seating (great in the wind though). Service was slow... More

The lamb we had here was very tender, but a lot of bones. Service could have been better, but the only waiter was doing his best to serve all guests.

The restaurant has a classy look to it, the food is good, and the service is kind. I had just a glass of wine, which was nice, and some local starters

We have visited this restaurant for a period of several years. This year's experience certainly confirms our earlier impression. This is the best restaurant in Plakias. We highly recommend this place!

We were two couples having a nice dinner here. Again we selected a number of starters rather than one main dish. This way we can taste many different dishes. Local specialities were very nice, and service was excellent. Not that many visitors when we were there.

We stayed here two years but mostly ate out in the town centre which was a shame because we had our best meal here on our last night. Coming back on this visit was high on our agenda - and we were not disappointed. Mrs O had beetroot salad for starter and lamb chops for main which were the best... More

We have been coming here for years back when the father ran things and have never had a bad experience. Nicos the son has taken it on, changed the decor which we think is very tasteful and made some changes to the menu. A little free taster to start with and a very nice little sweet for afters. We went... More
