Dinner on the beach, table in the sand close to the water, hearing waves splashing, watching sky full of stars........ The only problem is that service is so slow, that we have to wait 40 minutes to get the menu card!!! With the preparation of food was not better either . Took ages! Do not chose this restaurant on your... More

Went here for lunch. Nothing unique, typical Greek taverna food. Bad tomatoes in salad which is unusual for Greece, pieces of onion cut too big, no attention to detail. Moussaka was burned on top and although it was a huge piece, it was tasteless. Wouldn't go again. Prices are reasonable though.

We had always walked past Nicos and Maria taverna beside their studios because it never seemed to have many people in it. This time we discovered why. Everybody but us know about the hidden location on the beach where they have a dozen delightful tables not three feet from the water. What a romantic place, good food, great location and... More

Local tavern with sea view and the option of having a dinner by the beach.The food is delicious and the people that owns the tavern are friendly and ready to serve you.Easy access also by public buses.You must have a dinner under the moon light.

Nikos Maria is a nice taverna at the quiet end of Plaka beach. They serve the same food as many other tavernas: good traditional food but not very exciting. Prices are reasonable and the staff are friendly and helpful. It is a good place to have lunch on the shady terrace or dinner while looking at the sunset.

Best meatballs ever . and the other starters are very yummy too. washed down with a carafe of local white wine is a great way to spend a lazy lunchtime
