We ate here a couple of times and called in for a Brinks beer one day too. The food was excellent, the service good and the views fabulous. Definately worth a visit.

Beautiful setting Attentive staff Fantastic salad but the chicken was over cooked and very dry. Have been a few times when the main course was better.

Delicious artichokes for starter and red mullet with chips for main dish! And, of course a Mythos to complete a good dinner in a cosy environment with a great view.

Off the beaten tourist track, perched high above Plakias bay with a great (although often windy) view, the tavern serves traditional home-style cooked dishes, top quality, hearty servings. Cost is a bit higher than usual for location but still excellent value. Recommend the hare stifado...More
