We came here after a trip to Spinalonga. Everything was poor from start to finish. We ordered our food, and waited ages. They served meatballs without the ordered chips as they told us they had burnt them.
The main dishes came with no vegetables despite being told they would serve us vegetables.
They then added €10.50 for bread that we did not order. I realise that there is usually a small surcharge for bread but this seemed high.
Overall a very disappointing experience.

We were tempted into this taverna/restaurant by the friendly guy outside. He pointed us to a super table where we could people watch and play with the cat at the same time. The food was superb, and when we couldn't finish our bottle of wine he gave us the cork for us to take home. We will return.

If you want to eat in Placa - go here!! Great decor & atmosphere. Food was delicious! After a great meal, they gave us more wine, desserts & Raki on the house.

We had an excellent lunch here, after visiting Spinalonga. The taverna is nearby the quay for visiting the island, but on the other side of the road. You can't miss it.
Excellent treditional food (and not only), very big portions, good service and careful persons. In the end we had a very good desert and some raki, on the house.
Six persons, with eight meals and beers - around 90 Euros.
Definitely recommended!

Marias is a really nice taverna in cosy Plaka. The taverna had nice details and good service. The saganaki cheese was really good!
Recommend this place if you pass by Plaka.
