We went twice on this trip and it was an excellent experience.Well positioned for an ocean view with a warm welcome.The service is relaxed and friendly..we started both meals with a shared salad of generous proportions - a beetroot salad then a super seafood salad.We had good grills and well cooked lamb...loved the house red and a smooth raki afterwards.This is a nonpretentious taverna offering good food and well worth a visit!

We visited Gioma again after really enjoying our visits in October. It is May, is is raining (shock horror!), but we were looked after so well by the team at Gioma. Being inside the restaurant, chatting with the staff, seeing their relationship with the other customers was made us appreciate the dedication of the owner and staff to providing the best experience for their guests. The food is authentic and we leant that it is all sourced locally - sweet lemons, succulent lamb, amazing Tuna. There are 'fancier' places in Plakias but Gioma quietly gets on doing what it has done for years without

We went for a dinner there three times during our 10 days stay in Pliakias. We have never been disappointed with the food and very friendly service. Each time we felt welcomed and looked after. Also, the restaurant offers, in our view, a good value for money; even the house wine is not bad. On top of all of that, the views and the sea just at your feet feel great. Fully recommend the place!

Good location right on the beach in Plakias. The food was nice but I found the briam (Cretan ratatouille) a little too oily - question of taste maybe. Delicious vegetable soup.

Loved the food and the service. And the setting. We went there for late dinner and enjoyed eating that close to the sea! Hearing the waves added to a great experience!
It must be even lovelier at daytime!
Fish was excellent and very, very fresh. We got it after receiving some great advice from the waiter.
I absolutely loved it and would love to go back!
