We were two couples having a nice dinner here. Again we selected a number of starters rather than one main dish. This way we can taste many different dishes. Local specialities were very nice, and service was excellent. Not that many visitors when we were there.

We stayed here two years but mostly ate out in the town centre which was a shame because we had our best meal here on our last night. Coming back on this visit was high on our agenda - and we were not disappointed. Mrs O had beetroot salad for starter and lamb chops for main which were the best... More

We have been coming here for years back when the father ran things and have never had a bad experience. Nicos the son has taken it on, changed the decor which we think is very tasteful and made some changes to the menu. A little free taster to start with and a very nice little sweet for afters. We went... More

The Medousa ( spelling unusual) restaurant is simply the classiest eatery in Plakias. The surroundings are very tastefully decorated and the ambiance sophisticated in a friendly, Cretan way. The menu is rather more adventurous than others in town. Starters particularly generous, mains varied and desserts inventive. Service is exemplary and yet despite all of the above the prices are much... More

Medusa offers very fine dining at reasonable prices, the menu is refined as is everything about this restaurant. The little touches to the dishes lift them to Fine, a simple example anchovies on bruschetta topped with a single mint leaf - transforms the taste to amazing. The service is excellent as is the wine list, with a selection of Cretan... More

Food was very good on our first visit but was slightly let down by the very slow although friendly service. However as we enjoyed the food we went back again. This time the service was good. The food isn't quite fine dining but definitely a notch up from the norm and therefore slightly more expensive. Interior is pretty swish which... More

One of the better restaurants in Plakias, modern dishes and traditional dishes so a varied choice for most tastes. Comfortable surroundings and just off the main road so nice and quiet. Would definitely return if in the area again.

This restaurant distingiushes itself due to the top quality. The food, the interior and the competence/ service level of the personell is outstanding. We would certainly recommend this restaurant to all visitors to Plakias.

I'm afraid I have to echo the review of Businessman Dorset a few reviews down. I was so looking forward to returning here again as we usually go about 4 times in a fortnight. This time we only went once as the food/menu didn't really suit us. A shame because the restaurant has been beautifully refurbished and run by a... More
