“Great one night, average the next”
Reviewed July 3, 2013 via mobile

We went to this restaurant on a Tuesday night with the four of us and had a great experience. The restaurant was only have full, the waiting staff were effusive. We went back the night after and brought a friend. The restaurant was full, we sat right at the beach edge. They forgot the complimentary dips, and even the bread. One of the wine glasses was dirty. Service was minimal, even though the staff were exactly the same....

We're we expecting too much? Inconsistent experience.

“Our favourite”
Reviewed June 26, 2013

Our favourite Taverna in Plakias - offering the best balance of location, price, service, quality and quantity of food. There is a good choice of food on the menu, the house wine is good value and goes down really easily and the service was first rate. Add all this to the good quality food in generous portions and the pleasant location on the side of the harbour we found ourselves returning to this taverna during our stay.

“Food OK, service can be improved.”
Reviewed June 25, 2013

We asked one plate of sardines as a starter and when we were enjoying them the main course came after 5 minutes. The plates were put besides the small plates for the sardines. I don't think this is how you show to be the number one in Plakias on TA. The food was OK, good value for what you get. The atmosphere and the view are nice.

This is most definitely the best in Plakias, the food is amazing, and they have the most lovely and friendly staff you will ever meet, they are so genuine and nice, we ended up going to Gorgona's almost everyday of our stay in Plakias. We would definitely go here again and we highly recommend this place to anyone visiting Plakias! :)

“Excellent!”
Reviewed June 11, 2013

The best Taverna in Plakias -Cannot find fault whatsoever.
After visiting Greece and her islands 43 times, I can honestly say that the Kleftiko at the Gorgona is the best ever!
