We had a stay for 12 days in Plakias. In the beginning we went every day into an other restaurant (on te beach). Then we discover Taverne Medusa. Fantastic! It's not on the beach but so tastfull !!! Prices and wine are good. Peaple are friendly. Really a restaurant to advise to peaple who like tastfull and fine, fresh food.

Two years since we have been here and the place has been completely refurbished. Still good honest Greek food. It is quiet and away from the tourist traffic and well worth seeking out down one of the back streets. Would we go back? You betcha -and I hope we will.

A lovely setting but maybe they're trying too hard to set themselves apart from other tavernas in Plakias. Food alternated between tasteless pasta and oversalted vegetables. Maybe we caught them on a bad night but it didnt appear that they cared. Far better food to be had in more traditional tavernas in the town or in Mirthios. We wont be... More

this was the most elegant taverna and food is one of the best you could find in Crete. Just go there - it is sublime and so is the restaurant. Wonderful staff too

The best food in Plakias, by far. My daughter and I had some lamb cooked with stamnagathia that was absolutely exquisite! Returned several times and every meal was amazing. Nice place, friendly staff and great value for money.

Lovely environment nicely furnished. Typical Cretan dishes but with some personal style. Very friendly staff. We were with two lively kids and they had no issue at all. The house wine, we tried the white, was so tasty we indulged for a second one!

Not very Greek style meals. I had a mixed selection of starters for my main course but it was mainly bread with different toppings! My partner had beef stew with beans which he enjoyed . The restaurant is contemporary European and it could have been any where in Europe going by the menu choice.

We were recommended the Medusa by Reja @ the Dive2Gether dive school and headed there on our last night. She had told us it was romatic and cosy, and it was. The lighting, the tablecloths (not covered in paper like everywhere else) and the atmosphere was welcoming and comforable. Service was reasonably slow/relaxed but we were in no rush and... More

We very much liked this place. It looks more like restaurant than taverna so traditional in Crete. It is very stylish. The cousine mainly is local. We chose Crete salad, grilled fish and meat bolls. Everything was excellent. House vine was also very good, great better than everywhere we were.
