Just back from Plakias and our first port of call was Harakas for dinner.

As been stated, the layout of Harakas has changed over the last year.
Part of the old site was taken over by a travel company and we feared for what we may find on our visit this year.

But Sonja and Lambros were able to obtain extra footage at the other side,next to Kri Kri, so the overall size of the place has not been altered.

Now one half is under cover whilst the other half is open to the air.
We felt that this was a much better arrangement and that the changes enforced on Sonja have in fact benefitted her !!

Food , as always , was excellent.

Portion size ?
Never was or is a problem.

Service warm and welcoming.

Will always be the first place we eat at each year we return to Plakias.


Same here!!

And what's with all this RESERVED tables? Where are we..? London..? Every night tables booked at Harakas and other places! Really, if that's what you want then you are holidaying in the wrong country

We also agree.
It is one of the first places we re-visit when in Plakias and always eat there several times during those visits.

Whilst I understand what you're saying, it may be a little bit harsh on the poster. If they like to have an ordered and structured night out then so be it. Just a different choice after all. Personally if we're going to eat somewhere and it's full up we just go for a drink till a table is free, but that's just us. As for harakas, we ate there in June and it was fine, and we'll go there again in October.

I have been eating at the Harakas (as far as I can remember) since 1987 (I think it was operational then !). We noted the changes too but ate there last year and the year before and thoroughly intend to eat there again this year. Sonja was, as always, friendly and she explained what had happened but the tavern was always busy....we even had to reserve a table at one point at Sonja's suggestion. The food was excellent and the portions just right...didn't have any problem.

I agree that concerns should be noted but I also draw the line at posts that might impact on the local economy....praise helps a lot but criticism needs to be very carefully worded..if at all. Each to their own ...yes and, if I need to 'reserve' a table to eat where I want to eat why shouldn't I ? I have always wanted to eat at Harakas...not a problem.

Looking forward to eating at Harakas again in Sept !

We like Harakas a lot and use it as often as possible. But reserving tables could get very tedious if it catches on.

We also like Harakas - friendly staff and the Mushroom a la creme with rice is always delicious.

If that's the "French" place, then I give it the thumbs up - service great, portions were fine. I had the bekri meze (spicy pork- with chips AND rice) which was fab. Went back for my "last night" meal as it was my fave (although I tried the spicier Mexican pork instead - v. good too but preferred the bekri meze. I'll be returning for it again whenever next time is(???) Daza.

Not French, don't think so at least, although is in Guide du Routard; but, is Sonja Swiss French? My wife is French and I'd say that Sonja probably is French-speaking Swiss, even despite my crap French!

Cheers, Richard

I think Sonja is Greek but she was telling us that she spends a lot of time in the Winter learning new languages......17 to date I believe...which might explain why the hospitality (and he accent) is so good !
