The food was amazing, Plaka never disappoints. We had the Sardines and Mama's meatballs and Giouvetsi, an absolutely delicious lamb and pasta rice prepared with a tomato base.

When visiting Jnb, my dad insists on going to Plaka at least once. No visit will be concluded without a plate of his favourite hake and chips. The tweens also love the wide range of dishes on offer. As a vegetarian, you can't go wrong....The service has been excellent - the owner and managers are always present and available. Highly recommended. Thanks guys for always making it special.More

We ate really good food and we will definitely go again. The only surprising thing we got is our waitress changed when a family of white people came in. She was now neglecting us and she didn’t tell us her name we only got it...when she welcomed the family and told them her name. The service was totally different from how she served us. We waited long for almost everything.More

Thanks Nonna!

Reviewed 25 February 2020

The new menu at Plaka has dropped quite a few of my favorite dishes (in particular the selection of six dips with pitas). My wife tried one of the new dishes - kingklip. Unfortunately it was a rather bland and chewy affair. Kudos to the...manager who apologized profusely and did not charge us for the dish. Asdie from that, the food and service was excellent as usual.More
