“Really good food and beautiful setting”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 July 2014

This is for sure one of the best restaurants in or near plakias. They take you into the kitchen to show you the specials of the day, so I am unsure of the name of anything I had. We had a bean dish and a prawn-feta dish as starters. For mains we had some sort of feta chicken lasagne, and some slow cooked lamb. Everything was amazing and the service was fantastic. It's a few minute drive outside of town and totally worth it.

“Have a look in the kitchen!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 July 2014 via mobile

That is the fun part: choose your dish in the kitchen. Apart from that, this is a regular taverna. Certainly not bad at all, but with regards to its neighbours Panorama and Plateia not the #1 restaurant in this town. Value for money all the same, though!

“Brilliant Traditional Taverna”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 July 2014

Run by a family, every customer is invited to visit the kitchen to see what has been cooked that day. The food is different every day although there were stuffed zuccini flowers every day. As we saw the flowers being picked and prepared every morning, it was fantastic to eat them in the evening. We could not praise this taverna enough. It was about 50 meters from our apartment door - very convenient.

“Good Food and Atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 June 2014 via mobile

Very good food which you are invited into the kitchen to choose which we like to do. Ate here twice and were not disappointed. I ate vegetarian , plenty of choice and my husband ate beef stifado and lamb in tomato sauce, both he said were good. The Dionyssos Salad is great and a meal in itself. Cold beer, nice wine, free pudding and raki completes the picture. Lost out on 5 stars due to very smoky atmosphere and waiters(both good) being overly preoccupied with 2 blondes at other table although it was quite entertaining seeing their efforts fall on stony ground!
Give it a try you won't be disappointed.
