Week of May 25-31: We continue to offer takeout with the option to sit on the PATIO with limits on capacity. Our interior dining room is not available currently for seating. Patio seating will be limited to dinner and weekends (not weekday lunches) because of staffing levels. We'll have the bar menu available as well. IMPORTANT: Please call ahead if you wish to use the patio, so we can coordinate number of patrons to not exceed maximum. (608) 251-4455.

In addition, the public area across the street from Plaka is available. Enjoy your food there while gazing at the view of Lake Monona. We can provide you with water and condiments if you wish to use the tables and chairs there.

The parking lot across the street (turn at Rubin's Furniture) is still free for anyone to use for the next couple of weeks, and metered parking is still not being enforced. LINK

 

We have convenient pickup inside the front door.

 We prefer you call ahead at (608) 251-4455, as it helps with kitchen timing (however walk-ups are allowed too). You can either give your credit card number over the phone or in person when you pick up.  Cash is OK as well.  We're keeping the frequently-touched areas, including the pens, sanitized.  

 

We offer almost everything on the menu for pickup.   Call us at (608) 251-4455 and we can have the order ready for you, generally within a 10-20 minute time frame (larger orders or peak times may take longer). 

We don't use any 3rd party delivery services however (EatStreet, Grub Hub, etc).  We prefer to hand the food directly to the customer.

There is generally plenty of street parking in front of our place on Wilson Street.  Pickup is inside the restaurant--there is a table set up. 

See the links above for the menu, as well as our Combo Dinners and "4-pack gyros to go" options for feeding multiple people.

About Us:

In Greece, a "taverna" is a lively place where friends gather to enjoy drinks, home-style foods, and each other's company.  Plaka Taverna is such a place, owned and operated by Telly Fatsis, a native Madisonian, who incorporates many of his Greek mother's recipes into the menu. 

Transformed from the old Cleveland's Diner on E. Wilson Street (where you still find Telly & brother Nico serving those delicious breakfasts), Plaka Taverna has added Greek lunches and dinners to the menu as well.  Enjoy juicy gyros, homemade spinach pie, mouthwatering grilled kebobs, moussaka, hummus, falafel and any of our special combination platters.

Plaka features a full bar, with six beers on draft and a nice selection of bottled beers.   Want the true "taverna" experience?  Try one of Plaka's Greek lagers or a glass of Retsina, the unique Greek wine.  If you dare, take in a shot of licorice-flavored OUZO.  Or for fun...try one of our creative specialty cocktails, all while listening to live streaming Greek music!

Once you try us, you'll be hooked! 

Offering dine-in, or "to-go."  

 

Call (608) 251-4455 to place your order ahead of time.

What does "PLAKA" mean?

Plaka is the name of the old neighborhood in Athens that sits directly below the Acropolis.  With winding streets and old buildings, you'll be entertained by the unique cafes, the variety of stores, the museums, and the eclectic atmosphere.
