The cool colours of ocean and sky welcomes you as you enter. Tables are available inside or outside depending on the weather

Choose from a meze or main meal - from fish to meat or vegetarian options

Food is well prepared and tasty

A great option at the mall

One feels like they on holiday as you walk in the door. Plaka has a laid back feel, yet still gives you an elegant touch. The service from the time you walk in to the time you leave is incredible. Staff are not overbearing at all and this helps you have a relaxed meal at a very good pace.
The starters, to main followed by dessert were just superb. I had the Lamb Shank which was absolutely out of this world. Cooked to perfection and so tender, that the meat was falling off the bone.
If you looking for a place to take family or friends then look no further.

From the minute you arrive you are made to feel part of a family. Service is friendly and very efficient. The whole atmosphere is just so welcoming .There were lots of big groups there at the same time but we were not neglected or rushed . The choice of food is varied with plenty for our vegetarians of course.
