We came here for dinner during our week long stay in Crete. The thing that first attracted us was the gorgeous setting, fountains and lighting outside as we walked past. The menu was extensive and had everything you could think of! The service was excellent and there was no rush after we had finished our meal. Food itself was perfectly... More

I got a risotto with grilled pork. Abselutely delicious. Nice and calm music playing at all times; combined with candles makes for a nice, romantic evening. Only bad thing was, they didn't sell any Mojitos.

We ate here 3 times during our stay at the Leoniki Resorts. The food was quite good, and the servers are very personable. They also serve you ouzo and a dessert taste after your meal. Nice setting, large patio and indoor seating.

Enjoyable evening with great food and great people. Run by a family that cares about the restaurant, each other and their customers. It was easy to see they were a family and it made the evening and meal even better.

On our first evening my sister ordered the green salad which was really good. But on the second evening I ordered the salmon salad which was amazing!!! The dressing was delicious. And all ingredients matched with each other. The shots we got for free were really tasty.

We've been visiting Crete for a full week this summer and had the chance to try many nice restaurants in Platanes. Marem was one of the favorites. They make a delicious pizza bread, many different salads, good fish and meat. Prices are cheap as in many restaurants of the island! They also have a huge parking, free for their clients.
