Reviewed 1 August 2014 via mobile

If you want good service, great food and a wonderful view, look no further. The eggplant-starter was amazing! The zucchini-starter with mynth, was perfect! This is a place you must not miss! Enjoy!

“Fantastic local food with a goregous view of Plakais Bay”
Reviewed 25 May 2014

In the middle of May 2014, my wife and I stayed in Plakais for 11 days and ate out every night. Of all of the restaurants we tried in the local area, this was one of the best; so much so that we went back three times. Each time we ordered a selection from the "specials of the day" and were not disappointed. We talked to the owner and found out the cook was actually a grandmother who used her old family recipes with ingredients provided from the local gardens and pastures. For our last night in town we decided to go back and it was our best meal yet. We split a starter of fresh tomatoes & chunks of feta cheese mixed with herbs and olive oil on a lovely dark brown bread. I selected seasoned lamb with potatoes roasted in the oven and my wife had the vegetarian dish selection - each was cooked to perfection! We drank the house white wine and it was perfect. We did not order dessert because the main portions were more than adequate yet the staff still served each of us a half portion of a lovely yellow cake covered in a sugary glaze and topped with candied cherries. My wife enjoyed the tisane mountain herb tea while I indulged in the complimentary carafe of raki. All of this for a total of €30 - excellent food in a lovely atmosphere for a very inexpensive price. We will gladly go back again!

“Good atmosphere and service but food pricey and poor value”
Reviewed 19 September 2013

This restaurant is great in terms of location, decor, ambience and service - a step up from the usual. Unfortunately our meals were way over seasoned (my good lady loves salt on her food but even too much for her) which ruined the experience for us, and for what we had, the food was pricey so shan't be going again.
