My husband and I caught a taxi from Plakias up to the Platia in Myrthios for 6 euro's which was well worth it. We sat out on the verandah and the views over the ocean was simply stunning. They staff were very friendly and helped us with our food choices which were all delicious. The snail stifado as a shared... More

Fantastic views across Plakias and the sea. Restaurant is normally busy but they could always find a table. Specials were excellent. Food reasonably priced.

Food is perfect here! The prices are reasonable and the views are amazing! It is usually very crowded so the service is not that quick but that doesnt matter at all! Try fried zucchini served with white cheese and garlic sauce! The veal stifado is so delicious like home made! Salads are fresh and tasty! Moussaka excellent as well! The... More

The restaurant lacks of identity, the environment is not at all welcoming. The staff is indifferent, when I asked about a certain dish they answered.... I work here, what do u expect me to tell you? The kids are the least welcome almost hostile. Tasty chips, the quality of meat is poor. In general basic.

We simply acknowledge all the good things that have been written here about Platia. That is: friendly reception by owner and staff, delicious food (consider meze for two as a starter!) and, of course, a splendid view from its terrace over the bay area. And all that for a very acceptable price. Well worth the short drive from Plakias and... More

We keep coming back to Platia and although it's for the excellent food, it's also because Fredericos, Sifis and Elefteris ('scuse spellings!) are such friendly welcoming guys who make every diner feel special. They've added fresh fish to the menu and it's delicious, cooked to perfection. The specials menu goes fast so you need to be early to catch the... More

Located in Mirthios above Plakias this restaurant offers a magnificent view, wonderful Staff, great food and a lovely décor. Our initial visit was just for an afternoon drink while exploring Mirthios, and we regretfully left behind a camera, which we discovered some time later, we returned later more in hope that expectations to be greeted as we entered with our...

This is the best in the area, worth the 5 minute trip from Plakias to Mirthios. The view over the bay enhances a romantic evening meal. The service is as good as the food, quietly satisfying.

High above Plakias beach, in the town of Myrthios, this restaurant has great views but very average food. The fish offerings are noted as being mostly frozen.
