“excellent food”
Reviewed August 7, 2014

Our last meal at the gorgona was the day we returned home 5/8/14, we ate there every evening
and were never disapointed, everything was delicious and tasty. And to be right beside the sea was very pleasant ,sitting outside and eating when it was a lot cooler in the evening.
Just before i go a mention of the staff who were so very friendly and welcoming.

“Wonderfully fresh”
Reviewed July 24, 2014

After a morning on the beach, followed by a walk, we stopped here for lunch.

The welcome was friendly and the service excellent. The food was freshly prepared, full of flavour and tasty, what more could you ask for!

We weren't staying locally but if we had been we would definitely have visited this taverna again. This taverna has been accredited by the National Organisation of Tourism for its authentic, traditional dishes.

We have been there 3 years ago and this year we came again to taste fresh see food we came few times to have a try on few different things so i had squids, lobster, meditarenan shrimps (The Best Dish in Gorgona) some fishes etc.
Food is fresh and nice, but what truly makes the place is the amazing and humorous service there you can see what do you need work for and it is for FUN=)
So thank you guys for the best place to eat in Plakias, because food well it is simiilar to all the places on promenade but atmosphere is what makes this place so special.

“You MUST try the rabbit”
Reviewed July 14, 2014

As a retired couple my wife and I are regular visitors to Plakias . There are several excellent tavernas but GORGONA stands out in several ways .Our all time favourite is their rabbit stifardo which is the best in Crete . Swallow your prejudice , and the food, its delicious . This is Cretan food at its best . Babis , Goran and the gorgeous Irene will make you welcome . As well as the complimentary savoury starter you finish with complimentary home made dessert AND a slug of the locally made fire water called rakki . Truly a place to go back to time and time again .
