Pretty uninspiring attempt at Greek food. The doner kebab (gyros) was dry and over seasoned. The saganaki was uninspiring. Not a good experience.

Great Greek kitchen,the best in Bayreuth,a must eat there,you can eat inside or outside. My favorite place is sitting on the corner of Sofienstrasse and watching people going by. Having a great dinner I feel like I was in paradise

The restaurant is right in the historic centre on a pedestrian zone a couple of blocks left from the main street. The atmosphere is good and the food excellent though expensive. 87 euros for 2 adults and a child is quite lot. Service was also good.

The Plaka is a perfect Greek restaurant. The service is great, the place is really nice and cosy, even the "Biergarten" during the warmer times of the year. But the best at Plaka are the dishes. Amazing! And a must for having a dinner in Bayreuth.

We were 5 not- so young ladies without big appetites,but quite fussy about quality andtaste Our requests for smaller portions was no problem, and each of us was delighted with superb food- could not have been better. My lamb chops were more than delicious-- and the service was pefect.

Sunday in Germany is difficult time to find a meal. We tried a few other places in Bayreuth but all were closed. We liked the sound of a Greek meal in the middle of Germany but should have kept walking. We were shown to a quite courtyard aside the restaurant and off the street. It was nice with greenery climbing... More

We found the Plaka busy on an August Sunday night. The outside tables were full, a number of inside tables were also occupied, and the pleasant inner courtyard seemed to have a constant stream of diners coming and going. The wait staff is welcoming and efficient, but the food is more filling than distinguished. Perhaps that is the nature of... More

You don't expect surpisingly authentic greek food in Bavaria, but it is still there, if you know where to look for it. One of those place would be Plaka. From their proverbial hospitality, over the famous Mediterranean good mood to their hearty cuisine - everything is there. As a starter i had Panzari which is a beetroot salad with lemon... More
