Open from 12:30 PM this is a great place to have lunch or dinner. Whether you like eating inside or outside, in the open or in the shade, they'll have a table for you. We had the moussaka today which was very nice. Lunch for two including drinks was less than 20 euro's. Though just outside Plakias and Myrthos, it's... More

If you want to taste delicious traditional cretan food (even some traditional plates with a small twist), if you want to enjoy an amazing view and if you want to meet young cretan people who (thank god!!) know what cretan hospitality and kindness mean, you should visit Taverna Mariou. A message to the owners: please keep up the good work... More

My boyfriend and I ate here tonight and quite literally everything about this restaurant was perfect, the food, the view and the service. The waiters/waitress' couldn't do enough for us, checking the food was okay if we need anything etc and in particular we would like to thank Giorgo for being so helpful and polite to us. We would recommend... More

I have been to this taverna many times as I come from the area, so I visit it very often -at least so far-. I feel now that it is time to write my opinion and my memories which I can strongly support, after so much "testing" of everything in taverna mariou. It is a so special place with many... More

There is nothing on the menu that is not worth trying, everything is absolutely delicious. The view is literally one of a kind, since your eyes can get lost in the deep blue and long green of the South Cretian coast. The service is absolutely great, thanks to the fast and friendly waiters. The only thing surpassing the food quality... More

Situated at the end of the village of Mariou, about 4km from Plakias. You ascend a short driveway just like visiting friends and indeed that was our experience. These friends have a great view over Damnoni and Plakias. A very pleasant greeting, followed by quick efficient service all overseen by the young enthusiastic owner. I dined off the local Farmers...

The view is exceptional, try and be here at sunset. In summer that would be dinner - even late dinner. The establishment is high above sea level an has a lovely view of the sea, the sun sets over the mountains. The service is excellent, not only were they helpful in explaining about the food but when I asked about... More
