Platres Chocolate Workshop is not what you might expect from a country like Cyprus, but owner John has made something very unique. The chocolates are a creation of unique flavours from around the island, with a story to tell about each variety. The flavours are not what you find in your average chocolate shop, with ingredients like royal jelly, local... More

We came across Platres Chocolate Workshop as we were searching for attractions to visit in Limassol. Located in a village that feels deserted, this small chocolate shop seems to be the last man standing, but is absolutely charming with its British owner and his passionate stories about chocolate and its origins. While you listen to him, you can't but keep... More

Probably the most unique place to visit in Cyprus. Made here are luxury chocolates by John Adams and his small staff. Yes, they are a little dear, but they are probably the best you will ever eat. This is not Cadbury's, and they are supplied to H.R.H. The Queen. Unique flavours, master crafted, buy some as a luxury, treat yourself... More

As we enter the place a kind old man greet us along with his wife. He was a chocolate master(i mean that) . He told us about the history of chocolate and in every part of the story we get to taste one different kind of chocolate. However the chocolates there are very expensive

Good place to go with kids. I would recommend to try their herbal luxury chocolates: you would take a little bit of Cyprus with you!!! Delicious!!! I wish I had bought more of them as I already finished them in one day. And the price is affordable: 15 eur for 12 pieces. Worth buying.

A group of friends went last week to do the chocolate workshop that is done at the Platres Chocolate workshop and the experience was excellent. We were welcomed by a nice hot chocolate - one of the best I have tried in my life - just prepared by John (our teacher for the day) and then we were emerged for... More

I love chocolate and I have been to many chocolateries in Europe but there is no other place making the kind of chocolates Mr John offers in Plares. Expensive, yes, but at the same time high quality. Nothing to be compared with the other low quality chocolates sold by few in Cyprus. A visit to the workshop and to the... More

Went there once. It was my only one time there, but i don't think i will be going there again. The chocolates are very tasty, but are very very expensive. Platres village is beautiful though and worth visiting and staying there.

Visited yet again in July and October 2013 - great fun. Lovely chocolates and many stories from the proprietors, their time for their customers is limitless. The new flavours for Christmas are delightful. A must visit for all chocoholics in Cyprus.
