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.

This was not our first visit, we first went there a couple of years ago. This time we went because we saw a TV programme about the Platres Chocolate Shop and it jogged our memory so, with some friends, we decided to go and buy some of their Christmas Specials. We were not disappointed! The chocolates were unique - one... More

My husband and I went to this workshop last year after reading about ot on line. It was a great experience, John and his wife are amazing people with great stories and even better chocolate. The best part was the hot chocolate that was perfect in the cold winter. Next week we're going to Cyprus again and the first thing... More

This place was recommended to us by a neighbour who had spent his 65th birthday there on a workshop. It certainly didn't disappoint, even though we didn't actually make the chocolates. We had a very interesting chat about the chocolate and the source of the ingredients, amongst other village 'things'. I suppose after walking the Kaledonia trail the day before,... More
