“worth a visit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 16, 2014

while on holiday with my wife in plakias we ate at the gorgona twice and like most tavernas in plakias it didnt disappoint , I had the same meals both times started with snails its done different to the french but just as nice and for my main course I had grilled prawns which are probably the best I have ever had. my wife meals were not the same as mine but also very nice, the staff were polite and cheerful , so any body thinking of going to plakias for an holiday will eat very well all over especially here.

“Good food, good price”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 11, 2014

This is one of several adjacent restaurants along the beach front, very friendly, excellent service, good food at remarkably low prices. Excellent English, good fun and extra raki ( with honey) at the end. At this time of year ( May) can be a little cold outside.

“Gorgona”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 4, 2014

We ate here last night and as in previous years, warm welcome from all of the staff, who treat us like old friends.

The food is always good, the only thing to watch for is the enormous helpings for some meals.Certainly nothing to complain about but a starter has, in the past, been more than enough to fill me up!

We certainly intend to eat here again at least before we go home.

“Three times a winner”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 14, 2014

We went there three times, the second our wedding anniversary. Staff very friendly and prices as far below expectation as the quality of the food was above.

“Friendly service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 13, 2014 via mobile

It was one of the first restaurants open this season and hence the menu was not much help but the very warm and friendly welcome we were given, the quality of the typical Cretan food and the reasonable prices made us visit several times during our week on the island
