“We"ll be back”
Reviewed July 26, 2014

Our regular Friday night dinner date ended at Plaka after a recommendation from a chef at another restaurant that was fully booked. The reception at the door was the first experience that blew us off our feet. I had the Honey Badger cocktail - excellent. The Moussaka was the best I ever had. My husband's steak and veggies were without fault. The presentation of the food is excellent and our waitress Sandra was efficient, sweet and friendly. Despite the fact that the restaurant was extremely busy, service was fast and efficient.

“Average service”
Reviewed July 8, 2014 via mobile

Plaka serves food that is okay. Cuisine aspires to authentic Greek food but comes across as though it is produced en masse. The service was slow and can be improved. Would like to give it another try but hope for a better wine selection.
