“Breathtaking view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2012

This relatively new tavern has great view of the see an Plakias. The service was good.
We ordered for starters fried zucchini and for main course lamb with baked potatoes and chicken in beer. The potatoes lacked seasoning. The dishes were a bit smaller than the ones we had in the other restaurants in the area. The food itself was o.k., nothing more.
Free of charge: a basket with bread, olive oil and tomato dip, Yogurt with jam for desert. No raki was served at the end of the meal.
The place is very nicely decorated and it is a nice place to sit and watch the sunset.
Bottom line: not one of the best restaurants in the area, but great view.

“Charming, freindly and relaxing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2012

This restaurant in Myrthios up the mountainside from Plakias became our favourite during our recent stay in those beautiful surroundings. The waiter made us feel so welcome, the food was lovely and it was a totally relaxing experience. We tried several other restaurants in the area but this came out top of the list.

“Good food. Excellent service.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2012

This was our first visit to Vrisi. If holidaying in Plakias, you really need a car to get to it but it's well-signposted, and worth the journey. The waiter (Freddi) welcomes everyone as an old friend, and explains in detail what's on the menu. The food was very tasty and you get a decent portion. The restaurant is very comfortable and gives a great view of Plakias bay from wherever you sit. We look forward to returning to Vrisi on our next visit to Plakias.

“The best restaurant in Mirthios”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2012

We visited this restaurant 4 times. From the terrace you have a nice view on Plakias Bay.
The restaurant is modern but the atmosphere is pleasant. The restaurant and was opened about 3 years ago. From your table you can look into the open kitchen. The waiters are very professional and they have a real personal approach. The food is excellent. Specially the lamb and beef in paprika sauce were good. Prices are a bit higher than in the other 3 restaurants in Mirthios by it is well worth it.

“Modern, comfortable and relaxing”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012

Nice restaurant hidden in the hills of Myrthios. The restaurant has a very very nice modern Greek atmosphere. So relaxing and open! Good seats, big pillows. This makes it outstanding of the other restaurants in Myrthios. And I guess of the restaurants in Plakias aswell. The view for people staying in Plakias is very nice. But keep in mind that all the restaurants and hotels in Myrthios have this view.(which makes Myrthios a very ideal place to stay and the other restaurants wellworth a visit :-)) service is like it should be. Very good and welcomming but with a good appropriate distance. Not all dishes are great but in general the food is good. Would surely recommend this restaurant as the look and food is a far more then a average Greek restaurant.
