Paligremnos Tavern was a great find when we were in Plakias, situated at the end of Beach Road with a drinks hut on the beach. A very traditional tavern nestled amongst the trees has amazing food and friendly service and a varied menu with great daily specials. Enjoy.

I have had the joy of visiting Paligremnos Tavern at least 40 times over the past 10 years and the quality of the food as well as the atmosphere has been excellent each and every time. Highly recommended!

We ate here several times during our holiday and the food and service were always excellent. The dishes of the day on the blackboard are particularly good and often food we didn't see in other restaurants

This Taverna is in the most perfect location, right on the beach road. Over 2 weeks we had several lunches there and everyone one was very good, from salads to pasta, we enjoyed them all. The taverna itself was in great gardens with the tables situated under trees so there was plenty of shade.

We enjoyed an excellent meal, with fast efficient service, in English,while sitting at a table under large old trees in the yard. The restaurant is set back from the road so it is quiet and not dusty. The food was nicely done, portions were decent, and they gave us a treat for dessert. I would be happy to dine there... More

Varied menu, excellent quality food and generous portions. Really enjoyed the open, leafy courtyard with lovely views of the sea. Really can't fault this place. The staff were really friendly and seemed to offer honest advice regarding portion sizes rather than exploit tourists. Very reasonably priced.

The salads and the appetizers were really nice. The atmosphere near the sea, the quality of the food and the service always ready to help made our dinner very enjoyable. I recommend to try the Paligremnos salad.
