This is a very good taverna.

The food is very fresh, expertly cooked and well presented. The portions are huge!

The manager is extremely friendly and polite, and introduced us to the members of his family who catch the fish, prepare the meals etc.

The premises are traditional and incredibly clean.

Our only disappointment was that our visit was on our last evening, as we would definitely have returned.

Just average. Sorry, but I really don't see any relation to all the reviews here & the food we ate. An acceptable Horiatiki (greek salad), some OK sardines, a passable Pastitsio. & quite expensive.

While staying at the Blue Palace, near Plaka, my husband and I visited this taverna twice, One day we tried another restaurant in Plaka, but regretted it and went back to Gorgona! The food is lovely and Adonis is very friendly and professional. We definitely recommend it!

Excellent service and food. Family run and happy, friendly staff. Excellent for children. The food was the best we found in Plaka and the house wine excellent. So good, we went back there on our last evening.

We had a lovely holiday in Elounda this month, staying at the Blue Palace. While the Blue Palace is a fantastic hotel, their restaurants were extremely expensive, and the reviews for these pricy meals were not favorable. We had read on Trip Advisor that we should wander down to the Plaka Elounda and check out their restaurants. I was always of the mind that the first place you see is not where you should eat - Taverna Gorgona is the first restaurant, so we walked on by and tried another place that was OK but not exceptional. The next night, same thing. On the third night, as we were walking by, Adonis, their exceptional greeter, asked us to take a look at the menu - we did, and liked what we saw so we thought we would give it a try. We LOVED our meal - so much so that on the last night, we ate there too. This is a family business, the owner's wife does all the cooking, and she is talented beyond compare! Our only regret is that we wasted 2 nights NOT eating there, as we would have dined every night. They have such a great variety, and exceptional quality for all of their produce and fish. I miss it already!
