“Fantastic”
Reviewed August 28, 2014

What can I say about this taverna other than fantastic ... The service was brilliant as was the food. We were made to feel almost like family as soon as we arrived. Nothing was too much trouble here. This is one of the places we miss the most now that we are home. The staff were brilliant to us....always met with a smile and a warm hand shake..... Please if you do nothing else in plakias visit this taverna

“Fresh fish caught by family boat!”
Reviewed August 16, 2014 via mobile

Great service at this family run restaurant. I had the fresh fish every night and husband had the lamb chops. Everything was fabulous. Greek specialities and fresh lobster also available.

“Good location”
Reviewed August 14, 2014

The taverna is located near the sea, there is a nice view.
I ordered calamaria - in the plate were some and under them were fried potatoes!!!!????? - in the menu is pointed "calamaria". They don't say that there are also potatoes...
My husband ordered "shells with a spicy sauce" from the catalog, and they served 4 shells with tomato juice... Our friends ordered fish and it was fine for them.

The owner was very polite, the service was fast, the prices were high for what we ate.

“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.
