Enjoyable food for a fair price. Family run. Fresh, as most of the Cretan cuisine is. Not disappointing at all, but a couple other places on the hill are even better.

Amazing view and Amazingly good food. My girlfriend ordered chicken filet and it was just perfect and i ordered beef filet and that too was amazing. And the view, you can't believe it before you see it, this is on my top "to do" list the next time i visit Platanias! ❤️

Their moussaka was the best moussaka I have ever eaten. Family restaurants are usually really authentic and rustic and so was this one also. There is quite nice atmosphere in this restaurant!

We had four starters and two main course with my husband and child, and it was all under any standards, stifado and mushrooms being the worst. There is really outstanding view in this restaurant but nothing more. Would recommend for drinks but eat somewhere else. I really hope this restaurant will improve the quality of their food.

Thank EmppuSO
