“Great home cooked food”
Reviewed September 21, 2013 via mobile

We went here based on a recommendation from a local here. We were delighted by the food and were led in by the nice aromas coming from the kitchen. I had a Cypriate version of Lamb Kleftico, my partner had a pork dish with a strong coriander sauce. Both were delicious. The woman running the food service is super nice and speaks 6 languages. We went back another time because we enjoyed the food so much.

“Excellent home food”
Reviewed August 24, 2013

Great greek home food. Seems that the cook, the waitress and the owners are all the same person or at least the same family. several dishes are cooked with wine.

“Down By The River”
Reviewed May 29, 2013

We only went there once this year, but have visited before, because you can be assured that the food is authentic here, cooked by the owner and served by his wife.

There is not the greatest choice but it is plentiful and wholesome, made that day so very fresh, with a free accompaniment of olive purée and bread, but we received no free dessert, or raki (it being Crete).

The landlady is very pleasant, and she keeps a very lovely garden around the property.

Remember that you pay indoors here.

“Good as ever”
Reviewed May 17, 2013

Back in Plakias a little early this year so have found Lysseos quieter than usual, but gearing themselves up for hopefully another busy season.

Food as great as ever, freshly prepared and delicious. Great tsaziki, pork chop with brandy sauce, moussaka and chicken curry to name but a few.

Lucas and Lito take great pride in what they do - wonderful couple and wonderful restaurant.

Give it a go!
