    Meze tasty and authentic Restaurant clean and breezy ,great ambience Service can be better
    Yaaaay Mezze! Remember, sharing is caring!
    A few weeks ago my husband and I had lunch at Plaka Cresta. writing a good review is the best that I can do for them. The atmosphere was lively as well as peaceful. The service was quick and fast as well as polite. We ordered the meze as well as pita bread. We actually meant to leave earlier than we did but the food was delicious and we decided to enjoy more of what was the top ordered. My overall impression is that this restaurant is the most decent and the absolute best restaurant we had come to. Would recommend!
    I love good Greek food as it is so social and can be enjoyed while tasting so many flavours. Plaka in Cresta is no different. Very nice atmosphere with very good service. The meze options are fun if you order to make up a platter of your own. I recommend the dip platter as there is a nice variety of flavours: olive tapenade, hummus, tzatziki, potato dip, salmon dip and tartar. Then the Calamari stuffed with feta is lovely as is the croquettes, haloumi and you must try the peppers marinaded in garlic and vinegar. Add some souvlaki and yiros for protein with thin pita and you can make little nibbles and bites and experience all the lovely flavours.
    We love going to Plaka in Cresta. As you walk in you get warmly greeted and taken to your table. There is never a delay in getting menus or ordering your drinks. We ordered their dip platter to start and asked if we could leave one of the dips off as we are not particularly keen on that one, and our waitress offered us to swop the dip for another so we got to have double quantities of our favorite. I ordered the lamb chops which were cooked to perfection and my husband chose the baby chicken which was very tasty and moist. No pudding unfortunately because we were quite full. We left happily satisfied with doggy bags for lunch tomorrow. Thank you Plaka once again for the good food, we will be back.
