Description: Converted from an old car yard and established in February 2006, Plaka resembles a typical old style restaurant that would not look out of place in any city, small country town or island in Greece. Seating 120 people in comfort, Plaka offers a great experience for large groups or private functions. If it's a quick bite or a relaxed all night dinner, Plaka is perfect for the occasion, accompanied with an ouzo or two, Mythos or Fix beer. Wine is also available by the glass or bottle and stocks local varieties and the most popular imports. With large corner windows and a huge courtyard out front for alfresco dining in the warmer months, you and your guests will be very impressed with the atmosphere, service and quality Plaka offers. Plaka has set the new benchmark for traditional Greek cuisine!

The selection is good & the dishes authentic, cooked by papa- the son is your waiter. However the serves are massive- best to get an entree or to share your main. Their Greek salad is the best I've eaten

Service with a smile. Generous servings, very authentic. Good size family restaurant. Plenty of parking nearby. If the weather was warmer we would of been out in the courtyard with the olive trees and grape vines. We'll definitely be back.

Charged us $16 to bring out own cake out to us . They did not cut it or serve with anything which was insulting for a birthday especially . $26 for a tiny plate of gyros !! Bemusing , will not be returning , not worth a visit

After reading a variety of somewhat contradictory reviews this was my experience.

Service - friendly but at times disorganised and i could see the potential for slow service at times. It is a family style restaurant and perhaps too many would be chiefs and not enough well trained indians.

Food - very nice overall but not great. Greek salad was great, beans a little too cooked, lemon potatoes a little undercooked and lacking in flavour. Meat platter - the souvlaki skeweres were the best, the cutlets were fatty, the bistekia a little dry and the Gyros a little dry and tough.

Atmosphere was appropriate for a greek restaurant with an OK outdoor area and great big windows for those inside. Tables were well spaced.
