We had lunch here today - some meze for starters = freshest pita and delicious dolma with tzatziki and spanakopita. For mains we had gouvetsi and moussaka - both top class in taste and presentation. Dennis, our wait staff was excellent in his service and attention. We will definitely go back!

The service at Plaka is always of a very high standard. Management also continuosly keeps an eye on things to ensure that they are running smoothly. On a Saturday or Sunday afternoon it is very relaxing to sit outside under the umbrellas. The food is always of a very high standard. This weekend I had the linefish for mains and it was really juicy and well prepared. I will be back

We have been eating at Plaka for many years and I have reviewed it in the past. We haven’t been to Plaka for quite a while and to my astonishment everything is still the same. Service is out of heaven. Very well trained, knowledgeable,helpful staff. Thank you to Toyah. Service couldn’t have been better. The manager on duty is the best manager by far. So polite and always a big friendly smile. He has been there for many years.The food quality is excellent and everything on that menu tastes divine. The Greek coffee is the real thing and the halva ice-cream addictive.
Just one word of concern to the owner. The only downfall is that this restaurant needs maintenance. Although the toilets were immaculately clean, some doors wouldn’t close properly and in the restaurant I saw tiles going loose. The few white bar stools outside were a sorry sight to look at.
