The service and quality of food at Gorgona are second to none. I'm a regular visitor to Plakias and having tried many of the local tavernas I keep returning to Gorgona. Babis, Goram and Irene provide such a warm welcome and great service they really do make you feel like part of the family. All of the produce is fresh... More

Being a regular to Plakias have tried some of the other Tavernas but keep coming back to Gorgona. The food is excellent, if you have the local cuisine its all freshly made. The feta in the Greek Salad is truely spectacular, we also have the Gigantes and Apacia, which I can also recommend. Main courses are always tasty Giovetsi and... More

This is our 8th visit to Plakias and without hesitation we headed to Gorgona a number of times during our 17 day stay. Goran and Babis welcomed us back like old friends and the food was as always excellent. Definitely one of our favourite restaurants. We enjoyed many delicious meals there and in fact I so enjoyed the mixed grill... More

One of the most hospitable tavernas we visited. Lively owner who makes everyone feel welcome, noticed many single travellers chose to eat here. Traditional greek cooking good but not exceptional. This is compensated by nice little extra like free pre starter and pudding plus the larger than life owner.

From our hotel recommended this place, and it was a big mistake. The place is very small and you can not sit comfortably, the food is not very good, Plakias has better  restaurants

The standard of food here is superb. It never falters. It is by far the best taverna in Plakias and I eat there most nights of my holiday. Irini and her father Babas, are so welcoming and amusing.

It's like a fast food restaurant. Not really recommended if you're looking for an evening out. They brought us our main course when we did not even finish our starters. Quality of the food is ok, but the red house wine tastes a bit "soapy" In and out within an hour. Felt a bit like: move it, we need your... More
