Recently visited Plaka for the morning and decided to stop in Georgos taverna (Giovannis) for a cool beer and to marvel at the stunning view of Spinalonga. It was breathtaking. We were served two beautiful cold beers by a young lad called Yannis who also brought us complementary fresh anchovies. As it was pre lunch time he chatted to us and showed us the menu and his friendliness made us decide there and then to return the following night for dinner. We booked a table and Yannis promised the same lovely table at the window overlooking the sea. The next evening didn't disappoint in any way with the same fabulous welcome and excellent food washed down with excellent house wine. The restaurant soon filled up and had a great atmosphere. Would say it would definitely be best to book at night time. After dinner we were given raki on the house which we sipped as we watched the sun go down and Spinalonga sink into darkness and finally Yannis called us a taxi to take us home. The meal was beautiful and very reasonably priced and we were only sorry we hadn't found it on previous visits to Crete but we will be back. Young Yannis is definitely an asset to this restaurant and will make you very welcome.
