“Best authentic food in Plakias”

Lysseos Taverna

Certificate of Excellence
Cuisines: Greek
Restaurant details
Reviewed July 11, 2012

I have been going to Plakias for 25 years and have eaten at Lito and Lucas' restaurant every year. For those hoping for home from home this is not for you! No burgers No chicken and chips just authentic Greek cuisine lovingly prepared during the day by Lucas.You can tell how good it is by the number of locals that eat there and over the years the same faces of other Plakiasphiles
appear.Lito treats you like it's her home and may even jokingly chide you for not eating all your meal,she also speaks six languages fluently. The service is excellent, the food authentically honest, fresh and uncompromising to modern fads. As a chef I have total respect for their integrity.We shall again be going to Plakias in September and Lysseos will be top of the list.

During our weeks' stay in Plakias we have eaten at several tavernas, but we feel that the food at Lysseos is among the best you can get in Plakias. It is only possible to eat there in the evening as they only open around 19.00 and that means that they are always busy. They have a nice choice of dishes (including some special ones from Cyprus) and it tastes delicious. We tried the garlic chicken, pork cooked in red wine with coriander (Cyprus dish) and for desert a very delicious piece of chocolade cake.

We only managed to eat here on our last evening, but otherwise we would have gone back for 2nd time.

Plakias has many decent places to eat, but in my view Lysseos is the best - I have been eating there for over 20 years, sampled just about everything on the menu and never once been disappointed.

Unlike most other places, the restaurant only opens in the evenings and the menu is not 20 pages long. As a result you can expect freshly prepared food of the best quality. Add to this great service and homely atmosphere.

As well as tourists, the restaurant also appears to be a favourite with locals whcih is never a bad thing.

Highly recommended.
