Busiest restaurant in Plaka, not to sure why, food was very average and service was poor. Food was delivered as they prepared it so as a table of four we were all eating at different times and therefore finished at different times.

There are lots of restaurants in Plaka in similar position overlooking the sea. For our visit it was a litle intimidating with the heavy handed touting for business as you strolled along the street. Giovanni's touting was less intimidating than most - but interestingly seemed...More
