We had dinner once and lunch twice at Gioma during our 10-day stay in Plakias. Food very good, service friendly and helpful. We really liked its cool corner location with the trees on the terrace dining area. It was very sheltered on windy days. Would definitely recommend.

We truly enjoyed our stay at this very busy Taverna, sea front, with great authentic food. The hosts were very friendly and we went back to our apartment with a happy belly and a big smile. We'll definitely go back!

We have done the rounds of the restaurants again, and Gioma Taverna is still the best eating spot in Plakias. Food and service are outstanding. This is why we keep going back.

Luckily we went here on a resort "changeover" day as we were able to walk in to a great beachside table. Noticed at other times it was busy. Lovely meal, well cooked and great service from all the staff. Highly recommended.

I simply do not understand why this is not easily the top rated restaurant in Plakias. We visited two years ago and again this week: this time eating four times. We probably sampled 20 dishes. All were delicious: some were outstanding: none were disappointing. Stand outs are tomato basil anchovy salad, dorado and garlic, lamb tavos(With cumin), prawn saganaki .... More

We passed Gioma for 5 nights mainly put off by the sign despite it looking quite interesting inside. Having read the comments on Trip Advisor we took the plunge - 'never judge a book by its cover' Seated next to the beach as the sun set made for a magical evening augmented by the efficient friendly service. The whitebait starter... More

We have been coming to Plakias for many years now and yet managed to miss this place somehow, until a couple of years ago. We must have walked past it hundreds of times. What a mistake! This is one our favourite tavernas (our favourite?) in Plakias, with a lovely location by the beach, wonderful views of the sunset and genuinely... More

We've eaten here many times before over the years that we have been visiting Plakias and have always found the welcome to be warm and the food consistently good. This time we had two evening meals here and thoroughly enjoyed both. On the first night we sampled the courgette and feta balls. These were delicious with just the right amount... More
