Once again excellent local dishes served. Lovely desert and complimentary raki. Geat atmosphere headed by the ever smiling Manolis. All the staff here are so welcoming and hard-working. Will return.

Gioma is situated right on the waters edge with amazing views, especially of the sunset. My husband and I shared the Ozzo meatballs with pomegranate and yoghurt for entrée which were very tasty. The mixed fishes - seafood platter for our mains was ok but lots of bones in the fish and also included prawns and octopus . The service... More

This taverna was always full with people waiting to be served so we'd been in Plakias well over a week before we tried to get a table. Could see why its so popular, apart from its location,right on the beach. The service was excellent and the food was very,very good. We managed to get in a couple of days later... More

This restaurant has a great location right on the beach and you can watch the sun setting whilst you eat your meal. Food is very good as well.

We tried the vegetarian mousakka which was really a lovely slow cooked dish. Also had the grilled calamari with chilli and garlic. The main course serves are quite big. I highly... More

I love the location. The staff was always very friendly, the food was excellent. I had the tuna fillet twice and it was very nice. Manolis, the owner was very nice, all the staff made me feel welcomed. The raki and cake is a nice gesture. I will be back:-)

Horta is a must :) the wild leafy greens with lemon and garlic are fresh and very good here. The location is lovely, directly on the beach, with geese asking for their share of bread from your table. Very friendly staff give good recommendations. You'll probably come several times to taste more of the goodness they serve here.

Thank Nakrywka
