Familydinner? Romantic dinner? Dinner with friends? Go to Carpe Diem. To start with, they have the best souvlaki in Creete. Second, it is 5 meters from the sea with a marvelous view over the sunset. If you bring kids, they have a playground inside the restsurant. Toilets are nice, not to forget. It is easy to come here in a wheelchair - we have tried that. Prices are OK. Staff very nice. They might not be the fastest in town, but you are not in a hurry, are you?

Very nice and an extra child-friendly restaurant, right by the seaside, orange parasols.. So much toy for little children to play with in a shadow in the corner, and the take away offer on a large beer is 2 EUR! The toilet is always so clean!

Were here a lot since it was close to our hotel. You pay €2.5 for a sunbed by the sea where you can stay all day. The restaurant is nice, a large Mythos beer for only €2 was very refreshing in the sun. The toilets are very clean.
But most importantly their children pay area inside in the shadow, a great way to lure the small ones in from a break from the sun :)

A restaurant by the beach of Platanias with beautiful view over the sea and good food. I had the swordfish which was really good and juicy, my bf had the Lamb shank which was also very juicy and well cooked. Our friends lived at the hotel Villa Dora just behind the restaurant and ate at Carpe Diem every night. We can understand them!
