Every single time I am visiting Plakais I will promise myself to try a different location but again 4 nights Plakias , 4 nights GIOMA. The food is tasty and I just adore the setup. QUIET, seafront, sunset hotspot and so greek.

Great ambience sat under a lit up tree on the beach with the sound of the waves. We had Greek salad, seafood salad and seafood risotto as a light dinner, all were good and value for money for the large amount if seafood provided.

Beautiful location, great food, stuffed vine leaves were scrummy, as were lamb chops and hubby enjoyed his mixed seafood. Service was good too, the place was full by the time we left, clearly a popular venue for dinner.
