“Our Favourite Taverna”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 13, 2014

We have been eating in Harokopos since 2001 when we first discovered the lovely village of Plaka.
The food is typically tasty, wholesome Greek food and the welcome from the hostess, Fotini, always warm and friendly.
Forget the menu, Fotini will personally come to your table and tell you what dishes are the specials of the day. We always take her advice!
Value for money is second to none.
It is our favourite taverna in the area which is why we spend so much time there.
We cannot praise it highly enough.
We can't wait to get back there in a few weeks time.

“Excellent food and a warm welcome”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 19, 2014 via mobile

Harokopos Restaurant offers local dishes cooked to perfection. Any travellers suffering from coeliac condition will find plenty to choose from. Fotini understands the condition and will advise which dishes are safe, my favourite gluten free dishes are rabbit stifado, pork in orange sauce, and village sausages. Great atmosphere and friendly service in this family run restaurant!
