Where to eat...or not! / Re: Sofia Restaurant - Avoid

Amazed here too!
We've used Sofia many times over the past decade, and never had a bad meal or bad service. Indeed, they are always friendly and helpful.
I can only imagine that one of the waiters was having a bad day during your visit Colin and Sandra.

No further suggestions here then - but maybe I'll try it out in September..........

Just a guess - if it's pink it's probably taramasalata.

Well I'm not upset!
The forum is for anything relating to Plakias, and Olympic plays a big part in getting us there. I also struggle with understanding their business practices.

Another factor is that the sea temperature in Autumn is considerably higher than Spring.

Funny how the regulars always know well in advance where they will be eating on their first night it town.

Get over the sulks Barny - you'll be back next year.

As for me, I'm busy trying to get loads done before setting of for Plakias in a few weeks time!!!!!

Where to eat...or not! / Re: Sirocco Restaurant

Right Noopsy - but I think we'll be trying Sirocco again in September

Plakias / Off season.
« on: July 28, 2013, 03:28:30 PM »
Anyone visited off season? It's worth the effort, as Plakias is totally different when the season ends. We had a great time, and I'd love to do it again. However, we had to fly Heathrow-> Athens -> Crete. This was not as bad - or expensive- as it sounds, but takes a great deal more time.

I'd be interested to hear from anyone who's visited in the quiet times!

But the main reason for this post is that a group of Crete ex-pats are currently trying to get direct flights to Crete from the UK all year round, which would be a great benefit to them, and to us when we decided to go for a winter break. Please take the time to add your name to the petition here:

Where to eat...or not! / Re: Kastro
« on: July 25, 2013, 05:10:50 PM »
We're off to Plakias in September for 2 weeks - and will certainly be visiting Kastro more than once. The menu is not extensive, but it's all good. Their local red wine is excellent, and the welcome second to none. I even enjoy the walk (especially coming back, as it's all down hill)

That illustrates a common problem Richard. There are several places that have become favourites, for any number of reasons. 3 or 4 visits to Lysseos are a must, and the same goes for the wonderful taverna in Sellia. Then there's a couple of trips to Kastro, probably just 1 visit to KriKri for a pizza and a night out in Reythimno. So there's not a lot of nights left on a 2 week holiday to take the gamble of trying something new. Having said that, I've got a few on the 'must try' list from other recent Forum postings.

Lysseos will certainly be near the top of our list in September. We usually go 3 or 4 times in a fortnight.

I think a get together would be a great idea - but not being much of a drinker, I'm not sure of a good watering hole in Plymouth to suggest. Somewhere with plenty of space so we can grab a corner to ourselves would be good. Union Rooms?
As for topics - well I'm sure we won't run out.

Any more Janners out there?  Perhaps we should meet up?
