The starters and hospitality were very good but unfortunately the main meals were always disappointing and the service very slow.

We enjoyed some delicious food here in portions too large to finish off for a very good price, while sitting at a table one step away from the beach. It's a quaint taverna, nothing fancy, but the food was very well prepared, the vegetarian mousaka was memorable, we got complementary watermelon and raki, and the overall atmosphere was very casual....

Enticed by the position and view which are very good,the service however is terrible,the food very average.I have never been in a restaurant where so many customers were complaining about the lack of service. Trying to get a bill here is an art form,in the end I walked out, I got my bill after about 10 paces.Give it a miss.

Super location right on sea front. Very good at enticing people in with friendly banter explaining all the menu options. Don't be fooled!! Food was particularly poor and we noticed many people not eating their food. The Kleftiko which we know as lamb shank slowly cooked in the oven was nothing of the sort! Instead we got a few cuts...

Was I in a different restaurant? The lady outside was very polite and helpful but not pushy. She convinced us that we would have a good choice (even vegetarian). The young waiter -whose name I have forgotten- with a roman nose and a lovely sense of humour and attention to his customers was so pleasant I felt guilty when I... More

We ate here one night while passing plakias, we only read the reviews the next day and had to double check it was the right one due to some very poor reviews. As a family we all found this place very nice and pleasent with fantastic views and good service. The food was also good, we all got gyros which... More

Not the place to go in Plakias, choose one of the plentiful other restaurants nearby which have exactly the same view. Food cannot get any worse anyways. Avoid.

This was the only bad meal we experienced in Plakias.The vegetarian food was inedible and the lamb stifado left my partner feeling quite ill.This was such a shame as the view is amazing and the girl on front of house was lovely. Her job is to recruit dinners which speaks volumes.

We were eating in this restaurant yesterday and were very much disappointed. The food is not good - meat was dried out, French fries not crunchy at all and swimming in fat. The staff was horrible. They only care to get you in but once you're there, no one cares for you. My partner was waiting for 0.5 hour for... More

We chose to eat here one evening during our holiday in Plakias because the very nice young lady who stands outside to encourage customers to enter, for what seems all day and all evening, was so lovely and pleasant every time we walked by there on the way to the beach. The food is average and the drinks expensive, no-one... More
