Absolutely recommended

Taverna Mariou is a great tavern with an amazing terrace and view. Jorgos and Natalie are taking great care of the guests. The menu is small and concentrated on fresh ingredients. Simple but good - taverna number one in Plakias! Thank you!

Nice view, a lot of space and quite good food. I recommend this place especially if you want to admire sun set.

Like in many tavernas you can have a look into the kitchen, ask what are the dishes for today and choose. The staff is very friendliy. Greek people also visit the taverna but only after 21 h. Befor there are many German speaking people. The food was good, a good relation between quality and what you pay. There are many... More

We had a lovely meal at this restaurant up the mountain. It's an amazing place with amazing home cooked food.and the staff are very sociable . The price was very good too and we had a complimentary yoghurt with wild berries which was very tasty. This place is definitely worth a visit.

My girlfriend and I were brought to the restaurant by a local who lives down in Plakias, having been told that this was the best possible place for a meal in all of the surroundings... He was so totally and completely right! I've lived in Greece for the past four years, traveled extensively, and had some spectacular meals in beautiful... More

Having driven past this restaurant's roadside sign countless numbers of times, we finally managed to visit it this year during our October holiday in Crete. It's hillside location at sunset is simply beautiful, and matched only by the warmth of the welcome we received by the good folk that run it. Our only regret is that we have missed numerous... More

If you are staying in Plakias it is a very long uphill walk to reach this taverna, but you are rewarded with wonderful views and good food in a friendly family run taverna. We called in during a morning walk to make sure they were still open this late in the season and were greeted by Giorgos the grandfather who... More
