My family has been visiting this restaurant for over a decade, and it has maintained its high quality, substantial servings and great service over the years. When we first went, we started asking for two of everything we liked, and the waitress, a member of the owner's family, suggested it was too much food, and we agreed on 2 appetizer,... More

I have been to this restaurant before and it was better. The draw was parking and I thought the food was good. Unfortunately, this visit was not so good. It was a Friday evening, the service was average at best and they were out of rice and potatoes. What restaurant runs out of these basics. I had shrimp plaka, which... More

We always bring visiting friends to Plaka because it is a stone's throw from our home and we have never been disappointed! The other night five of us had dinner to celebrate a birthday. We ordered family style the grilled assorted seafood platter, Greek salad, gyro platter, and grilled lamb chops plus the house wine. Everything was great and servings... More

We've been coming here for years, avoiding the parking problem in the Greek area of Astoria--and been just as happy, if not more so, with the food. It is always delicious, beginning with the huge selection of hot and cold appetizers, including sublime zucchini fritters, on to the classic entrees--super-fresh fish, kabobs, etc., and all their homemade desserts. The owner... More

You can almost miss this in the corner of the grocery store shopping center. Very generous portions, decent prices, and the service is nice. Comfortable dining room area with lots of windows and views of the parking lot Plenty of parking

Nestled in the corner of a shopping center with ample free parking, this place is perfect for a quick lunch or a long sit-down dinner. Service is quick and friendly; Food delicious, authentic, and nicely priced. Don't forget to order a glass of Greek wine to be paired with your meal. You wine be disappointed.

I've been to many Greek places--this is the best! Fresh and tasty. Chicken platter will keep you coming back for more. Wine is good, too.

Located in an unassuming strip mall, it's easy to overlook Plaka. We came with friends (one of whom is a regular, and also Greek.) Food was fresh, generous and very flavorful. We had a mix of things - big platter of Greek spreads, grilled octopus, lamb, all sorts of things. Very tasty. The octopus in particular was very well prepared.... More

Have eaten gyros many places. Every place we go, gyros are served slightly different. They were good, but not my favorite overall. Gyro was meaty, with onion and tomato. The pita was too soft and sauce too thick for my liking. Shared one of their Galaktobouriko with the other people at my table, none of us really loved it. Service... More
