Any changes ?
« on: May 18, 2014, 04:59:33 PM »
We are due back in Plakias on the 29th May for 2 weeks for our regular summer "fix"
Car booked from the airport and room with George at Creta Mere sorted out (I think !!).

From those who have been there earlier in May, are there any major changes from 2013 ?

I know things don't change at any great pace in the village but are all the same tavernas open and do any of them have changes in staff/owners ?

Is Sonja still at Harakas ?

Yes, Sonja is still at Harakas, and for reasons of sentiment we always return at least once per holiday. 

Plakias seemed a little quiet (May 2nd to 13th).

The Gavdos ferry in the harbour had gone, which is a bit of a shame, although something of that size and a likely profit always seemed a little optimistic to me, at least if Gavdos excursions were to be its major source of income. Does anyone else have more information on possible ferry services from the harbour?

Someone now in Plakias has just sent me a video of the newly fitted out interior of Medousa Restaurant. Incredible. Do pack your dinner jacket :)))

Yes, we tried a couple of weeks ago. Very nice, very good service and food, good value, even the loos are swanky; just not sure if it is what I look for in Plakias. Still, know to take DJ next time!

We ate there last night and it is very nicely done out, good food, reasonable prices as well. Glad to say not a dinner jacket in sight. At the start of the meal we were served bread with two dips. One of these was a garlic spread, but the other one was nuclear pink in colour and of an indeterminate taste. Does anyone know what it is, or supposed to be?

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

It is certainly not taramasalata, it's a slightly darker and practically luminescent dark pink in colour. The taste is not particularly strong, and I couldn't quite recognise it. Just wondered if anyone else knew what it was.

Yes, I think so. I prefer the 'simpler' Taverna feel.

We have eaten in the Medousa every night so far during our stay. In our view, the best food in Plakias. The "Pink" starter was puréed beetroot with yoghurt and olive oil.
