Had the cheese dish, spanakopita, kleftico, and gyros. It was exceptional and very reasonably priced.

We have been going to Plaka's since we moved to Calgary 16 years ago. The service is always efficient and friendly (although we were very unhappy when Yanni moved to Vancouver). The saganaki is wonderful and we have always enjoyed their various Greek standbys, souvlaki,...More
