Had the best time at Plaka Cresta with a couple friends! Our waiter, Professor, was given free rein on Meze's to serve, and he did a great job - all the food was delicious, and the restaurant has a really relaxed yet cheerful ambiance. Really enjoyed the vibe that sharing the meze's created too, we will definitely be back!

When we popped in for drinks we viewed the menu and decided to have a light dinner. We order three meze dished – halloumi, sardines and calamari tubes. Everything was tasty and we loved the bread too. The service was professional and friendly. The dishes were flavoursome and the ingredients were fresh.
Ideal for a drinks or dinner. Or both.

We've always enjoyed Plaka restaurant, but felt that the food quality at Eastgate surpassed the Cresta location. It's caught up!!!! We've been to the Cresta branch twice this week for lunch and enjoyed both times greatly. Our favorite dish is the meze vegatable platter for 2, with sides of calamari! YUM!!!!

Service is good and prompt, and folks are friendly. Good value, too!

Once again a delicious dinner at our favourite Greek restaurant in Gauteng.
Our waiter Terence was superb and decisive in his recommendations. We had the beef yiro in pita and chicken in pita for mains. Dessert was the Galaktobouriko with ice cream. Absolutely delicious!
We'll definitely be back.
