The restaurant has a wonderful view. We sit there early for a beer/coffee, we were watching the sunset and after we ordered the dinner. There you have to go earlier, because after 20:00 there are not available tables almost. The first evening we went, we couldn't sit - the restaurant was full, the second - we went early. Probably it's not every evening, but in the middle of August was like this.
The food was delicious, the service is polite, the prices are normal. Recommended!

This place is great. The food is excellent (the meat is very tender), the staff is very friendly, the view is spectacular, and all that for a very good price! Perfect!

The restaurant is a 5 minute drive up the hill from Plakias into Myrthios. We were greeted by the young owner Frederikos with his big black Greek moustache and glasses, we felt valued from the minute walked in until we left. We visited this restaurant 3 times during our week in Plakias because it was so good. It is a family run Taverna and the staff are very friendly, courteous and efficient. The views from high above Plakias are beautiful as are the sunsets. The taverna is exceptionally clean, spacious and airy. The service is amazingly quick and within minutes of choosing our table we are served with cool drinking water, warm, fresh bread and a dip. The menu is varied from the usual Greek favourites like Moussaka, Calamari and a great big Greek salad. The house wine is excellent and very good value. Again, the mains come within minutes of ordering and the portions are huge. We are never pressured and the staff remain attentive throughout the evening, replacing water bottles as soon as they are empty. As soon as the bill is requested, a plate of small desserts and glasses of raki arrive, along with the bill. It is extremely good value for money and we never paid more than €50 for 4 adults including a tip. At these prices, it wasn't worth trying to cook a meal at our apartment, which is why we kept coming back. Get there early (7pm or before) as it gets very busy with tourists and locals and the food can start to run out by 9. Lovely place, very well run and very highly recommended.

This place is food heaven, it's the third night we've eaten here and we've got five more nights left to look forward to the "white beans in the overnight" described by the waiter as "surprise" was so stunning the best ever, one small point get there early as the best food sells quickly.

This taverna is located in small village of Mirthios, up on the hill above Plakias. There is a fantastic view from its terrace to the sea and beautiful sunset. The staff is very helpful and friendly, the service is fast, and the food is the best of everything! Also, complimentary fruit after dinner.
