The team at Gorgona have made our evenings in Plakias thoroughly enjoyable for another year with great, fresh & extremely tasty meals. The friendly welcome and hospitality from Goram, Bobbi and Demitri make us keep wanting to come back.

Following the disastrous fire on May 10th this year , which destroyed all the enclosed dining areas for the row of 5 units including Gorgano , this area of Plakias has been struggling to keep going when the weather is windy or wet . We went three weeks after the fire and already a new concrete base had been laid... More

We spent almost all dinners of the week at Gorgona. Not only the food and the fresh fish is excellent but the owner and the servers made us feel as part of the family almost. A great place, simple and good, like you want to find in Crete.

Family run fish Taverna since 1992. Here you taste that everything is homemade and very traditional. The owners also catch all their own fish for a really fresh dish. We enjoyed our lunch very much and the waiters and staff were really chatty and very helpful. We relaxed under a canopy and enjoyed a peaceful setting but also watching the... More

OK....perhaps I am biased.....I now count Costas and the Gorgona team as friends but that's not difficult. The location and atmosphere here are amazing..as is the welcome at all times of the day. The food is simple but delicious and always well presented...even if the timing becomes a little quirky when they're busy....which they always are. Highly recommended !

Very welcoming staff at this place where the kitchen is on one side of the road and the tables the other-providing excellent views of the harbour, sea etc. Have "Briam" - a sort of veggy stew, useful as an extra choice.

What can I say about this taverna other than fantastic ... The service was brilliant as was the food. We were made to feel almost like family as soon as we arrived. Nothing was too much trouble here. This is one of the places we miss the most now that we are home. The staff were brilliant to us....always met... More
