Visited a few times over past few years while on holiday in Plakias, food excellent, staff very friendly, always have time for a chat. The view when sitting outside has to be seen to appreciate it.

We made it on time to see the sun go down - really beautiful. The eggplant cheese saganaki was lovely. Moussaka and meatballs to follow - both good very large portions. Also given a serving of Horton (wild greens). Decided to share the chocolate cake after which was excellent. House wine is decent. Given fruit (looked a bit limp) and... More

The taverna in this little village is not about haute gastronomie, as is usually not the Greek cuisine, it is about the simple, fresh and well cooked local food. Very friendly staff, family-run business, great views from the terrace, tasty food. Try paidakia, loukaniko, horta, feta saganaki.

Taverna Mariou happened to be our neighbour during our stay in Mariou; a whopping 5 meters ;) through a small path from our garden brought us to this taverna. We were very fortunate to have them so near because the food and atmosphere is nothing short of excellent. Staff is very friendly, alert and fond of children. Our kids loved... More

After a tiring climb up from Preveli this was just what we needed. The Saganaki was amazing, with moussaka and stuffed calamari to follow. Service was great and the views spectacular as promised. We got there fairly early, it was busy by the time we left(8.30). Cheesy garlic bread and pork fillet and chicken souvlaki was great for the girls... More
