Had one of the steaks from the menu was delicious and cooked just how I wanted it to be.

If you don't mind... read more

I recommend this restaurant especially after dark. - The atmosphere is especially romantic and charming. I found Cretan food to be fantastic overall but Myli Cafe had that something extra.

A really wonderful restaurant -and a unique culinary experience. Set among windmills and little fountains, the tables are lit by small kerosene lamps and adorned with vases of wild flowers. The ambiance is cosy and the staff couldn't be friendlier You can try a variety of Cretan delicacies as well as the classic dishes, since every dish seems to come... More

Although it has one of the most nice environment in platanias, the service is slow and the quality of dishes is medium. In the first photo the cat was drinking water from the fountain

Cretan cuisine at its best. In a lovely garden full of flowers. A place you never visit only once. Salads, meat and cooked plates: 10/10 points!

A pleasant setting but let down by very average food. Has a small play area and seemed popular with families.
