We ate at Taverna Panorama on a Friday evening, where they had a Cretan band playing, the atmosphere was lively and really good fun. The restaurant was full, the food was fantastic and great value. The staff were more than accommodating and moved us onto the terrace as soon as a table became available. Would definitely recommend a visit to Taverna Panorama.

The restaurant was very busy when we went, but the service was good and the food was delicious. The only negative is that I prefer a richer sauce in stifado, but that's a matter of taste!

The view from this Taverna is exquisite, looking down from the village of Myrthios across Plakias bay and the simple Cretan food and friendly, attentive service match this location. Breakfast of freshly squeezed orange juice, tomato, cheese & mushroom omelette and black coffee in the early morning sunshine watching Plakias slowly come to life in my view is what holidays are all about. Lunch and dinner are great to, with a good choice of fish, meat and vegetarian dishes.
If you are staying in Plakias it is well worth the 2km drive up to Myrthios to experience this lovely taverna - enjoy

The Panorama is an institution in the area - we have been visiting since the early 1990s and it has always been great.

The location is fantastic with brilliant views over the lovely Plakias bay and the surrounding mountains - you can sit eating your tzatziki and meatballs, with huge views around.

The food is Greek / Cretan but all well executed - dishes of the day are available to view and usually the best bet -loads of vegetables as well as meat /fish options. But there are concessions to modern tastes, with expresso coffees and great chocolate mousses.

If you are staying in Plakias, the main resort below, you can opt to walk up - a stiff 30 minute walk up the mountain, but it sure gives you an appetite!

If you are in the area, I do encourage to give it a try.

Greek Taverna offering all kinds of typical Greek dishes. They good with the lamb, Also the chicken in lemon sauce and village sausages were very good.
We ate 5 times in 2 weeks in this restaurant. We only had one disappointment with a pastitio which partially cold from the magnetron.
Nice view from the terrace towards Plakias and the Libyan See.
unforgettable was the musical evening with a fantastic professional Greek group.
A very good bouzouki player, a virtuous Lyra player a guitar player and a very talented singer performed during 4 hours a variety of Greek traditional songs.
A pity was that on the sold CD not the complete group was present....The lyra was missing.
