Plaka has a number of restaurants and a stroll up the street will result in you being "invited" to have any number of meals. Ignore them and go straight to Elpis at the end of the street.
We went there on a busy Sunday night and had a lovely experience.
The waiters were friendly, welcoming and appeared to be enjoying their job. They were having a good time and made the atmosphere far more genuine than that the usual waiter/diner interface.
There were some lovely, even sophisticated, touches on the table and with the general ambience.
The food was delicious. It would be very easy to choose basic Cretan touristy dishes, but go away from these and you will be pleasantly surprised at what is presented. Even the house red was very pleasant, far more so than that being offered at another restaurant in Plaka on a previous evening.
Go there, have a good time and appreciate their attempt to be a little different.
