“You MUST try the rabbit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2014

As a retired couple my wife and I are regular visitors to Plakias . There are several excellent tavernas but GORGONA stands out in several ways .Our all time favourite is their rabbit stifardo which is the best in Crete . Swallow your prejudice , and the food, its delicious . This is Cretan food at its best . Babis , Goran and the gorgeous Irene will make you welcome . As well as the complimentary savoury starter you finish with complimentary home made dessert AND a slug of the locally made fire water called rakki . Truly a place to go back to time and time again .

“Good milk shakes”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2014

The strawberry milkshakes were the best I had, we did not eat at the restaurant even though you can get 10 % off your food and drink when you stay costa and Chrissoula hotel.

“Make you feel like part of the family”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2014

The service and quality of food at Gorgona are second to none. I'm a regular visitor to Plakias and having tried many of the local tavernas I keep returning to Gorgona. Babis, Goram and Irene provide such a warm welcome and great service they really do make you feel like part of the family. All of the produce is fresh and locally sourced so the only problem is choosing what to have. Nothing is a problem for the team at Gorgona.
