Good restaurant, good greek food, very good pork and the most, nice and simple people at the restaurant.
Been there with friends in January and recommend a visit to this tavern in the beautiful island of Poros.

I have been meaning to write a review since eating here in November 2012. I was on the Island for two weeks in November 2012 so it was out of season. Had my evening meal at the Plantanos on most evenings because the food was so good. Very well priced authentic Greek food was on offer each time and I was always made really welcome. Their olives and fetta cheese tasted wonderful. The meat dishes - lamb and pork - were lovely and were made with high quality ingredients. Also had some really good fish. I am visiting Poros next June and taking a friend who loves his Greek food - and we will definately be eating at the Plantanos!!

The setting is under the Platane Tree should be great but felt just a little soul less and end of season as the staff just carried out their task driven duty without the warm Greek hospitality...the pork from the rotiseri was cut into cubes, mostly soft fat with little meat and piled high with chips. The carbonara was delicious and plentiful so we ended up sharing that!
There are better places with warmth and atmosphere.

Simply beautiful. Amazing pork on the rotisserie complete with crackling!
It is a bit of a walk if you don't have a bike but it is worth it.

We have been several times to Poros, but somehow avoided this taverna as it looked too tourist oriented.

This time we decided to go for dinner and were very pleasantly surprised. In addition to usual starters, they have a number of specials - e.g. grilled haulumi cheese (or the better value option is the grilled halumi with grilled vegetables) or beet root salad with garlic (which sounds not as good as it tastes - as it is warm salad where they use baked (I believe baked, not boiled) beet root. Egg plant dip was OK, but probably too much vinegar to our taste. For main dish we had veal steak - and it was the most tender, succulent and really tasty veal cutlet (grilled to perfection) we have had for ages; and roasted pork (in fact it was suckling pig, I believe). Both arrived with home made potato fries (which we usually try to avoid, but here they were irresistible.

Then we returned for lunch here - with the same veal steak, it was of the same quality and taste - and there were no visitors at lunch time, which did not scare us away - because we knew what we get.
