We have been visiting Plaka at Cresta for the past 10 years, almost monthly. I can testify to professional service standards and our expectations being consistently met. Lovely atmosphere whether its summer or winter. The manager is always present and engaged, the kitchen works effectively, the restaurant maintains high hygiene standards and I have never spotted an unpolished glass, cutlery,... More

Valentine's Day dinner menu was well priced and the selection was great. Food was excellent and the service was good. Some of the starter portions are generally too small in my opinion, but the starter platter I had on this occasion was really nice to share. Plaka has a very nice atmosphere and fresh decor. The staff are friendly and... More

We've been coming to Plaka for years and we have never been disappointed. The waiters are attentive, the atmosphere delightful and the food sublime. For a special occasion or just your next family meal, there really isn't another option.

I came with friends who lived nearby and recommend it. From the outside it looked busy and well designed. We all ordered beers and the line fish which was Kingclip .... I added vegetables with the others choosing chips. When it arrived it looked good but that's where it ended. The fish was so tough I only managed to eat... More

I have been frequenting Plaka in Cresta for many years. I eat out often and although I have many great experiences in and around Johannesburg, I have not often found a restaurant that I can consistently wax lyrical about. Plaka in Cresta is however one such establishment. In all the years that I have been going there, I have never... More

This has to be one of the few restaurants where the service is fantastic in Jhb. The guest comes first, all waiters greet the guests, they well spoken and very well... More

Great food great service even though busy Sunday afternoon - table reserved as requested and attendance by waiter staff is good but not bothersome. Quality and presentation superb. Happy buzz of happy patrons but no screaming kids which makes Plaka a great outing option.
