Best place to be

First impression is breathtaking view and very friendly and welcoming staff. As you sit and wait for food you ordered you can think that nothing is better than this view. But then comes the food and you already know that you're in heaven:) Definately a place to be!

We have been here quite a few times and agree with the other reviews. Just wanted to add something. The Moussaka there is the best I have ever had in Crete. Although still VERY filling, it is lighter, which makes it so much nicer than the other ones you get anywhere else.

It is definetely worth the drive up the hill to try this excellent taverna. The view is stunning, the food magnificent & very reasonably priced. Lovely sunset. We were so impressed we went 2 nights in a row. The taverna also serves a good & very drinkable house wine which is not always the case with many tavernas. Recommended &... More

A real family restaurant with great view from the hill to the ocean. Great mediterranean food. As complimentary they served us a housemade yoghurt with sweetened wild berrys and of course raki. Worth to go there.

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!

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
