I regularly visit Plaka at Eastgate rooftop whether it be for a business lunch or with family. The first thing that always impresses me when first being seated is the quality of the staff which is a lasting impression throughout your visit. Management is professional and friendly and the waiting staff always appear to be happy to please. Always present... More

Plaka is a very nice restaurant, I love the ambience, there is something about blue and white that just makes you feel so refreshed and calm. The service was terribly slow, the food was just ok and the service could do with a bit of warmth and energy. Plaka is just ok, nothing to write home about.

The warm greeting that we receive from Neeshal and Adiel is unwavering at each of our visits. The food has remained by far the best that we enjoy out. My husband had the Kleftico which is his all time favourite , my sons enjoyed the meze and the t-bone steak and I was enthralled with the baby chicken (which was... More

We visited on a Tuesday night and the restaurant was probably about one fifth full. Despite this, the service was really slow and the waitress made some errors: Forgot to bring the ice which we asked for, too few wine glasses for the adults at the table, one main meal brought to the table significantly later than the others. We... More

Plaka has a feeking of authenticity - it's huge and can sit big crowds, yet one doesn't overwhelm your own party. Lovely Greek music. Excellent food. Very accomodating and good service.

The decor at Plaka is the typical white and azure of the Greek islands, really very pretty. We had a waiter who was probably the best waiter I've had the pleasure to be served by in the last 10 years - knowledgeable about the menu, pleasant in manner, and kept a constant roving eye over his tables, meaning that all...

Our regular Friday night dinner date ended at Plaka after a recommendation from a chef at another restaurant that was fully booked. The reception at the door was the first experience that blew us off our feet. I had the Honey Badger cocktail - excellent. The Moussaka was the best I ever had. My husband's steak and veggies were without... More
