“Still best in town”
Reviewed May 31, 2014

Back after two years, and the food in this taverna (read restaurant) is still excellent. If you wnat genuine Greek food (nor tourist food) then this place is for you. The ambiance and the service are second to none. With level access and a devine view, without intruding music it is a superb dining experience.
My wife and I have tried most others - this in our experience is still the best in this town!

“Possibly the best meal we had in Crete”
Reviewed May 25, 2014

Great place for food (but don't stay here if you have other options). Great Mezes and Raki too. Very large portion sizes though - you may need to ask for a smaller portion. The beetroot salad is splendid.

“You must enjoy this taverna”
Reviewed May 13, 2014

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!

“Friendly service, excellent authentic food, a gem”
Reviewed May 6, 2014

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

“Great location, food and service”
Reviewed April 22, 2014

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!
