We visit Vachus several times when we stay at our Villa in Plaka. We’ve been going back for over 10 years. Great food, well priced and very good service

Three times in one week time we had dinner in this very nice restaurant. They served a very fresh chicken salad, the most tasty giros and an excellent moussaka. Staff is extremely friendly and makes you feel at home!
