We simply acknowledge all the good things that have been written here about Platia. That is: friendly reception by owner and staff, delicious food (consider meze for two as a starter!) and, of course, a splendid view from its terrace over the bay area. And all that for a very acceptable price. Well worth the short drive from Plakias and... More

We keep coming back to Platia and although it's for the excellent food, it's also because Fredericos, Sifis and Elefteris ('scuse spellings!) are such friendly welcoming guys who make every diner feel special. They've added fresh fish to the menu and it's delicious, cooked to perfection. The specials menu goes fast so you need to be early to catch the... More

Located in Mirthios above Plakias this restaurant offers a magnificent view, wonderful Staff, great food and a lovely décor. Our initial visit was just for an afternoon drink while exploring Mirthios, and we regretfully left behind a camera, which we discovered some time later, we returned later more in hope that expectations to be greeted as we entered with our...

This is the best in the area, worth the 5 minute trip from Plakias to Mirthios. The view over the bay enhances a romantic evening meal. The service is as good as the food, quietly satisfying.

High above Plakias beach, in the town of Myrthios, this restaurant has great views but very average food. The fish offerings are noted as being mostly frozen.

We (my husband, my daughter an I) visited Plateia tavern for the first time four years ago. We adored the stunning view of Plakias bay, the fresh home-made bread, the big tonosalata and brizolas, the tzatziki....And of course, the Retzina from Chania and the strong local "rose" wine of which we drank liters... For the first time in Greece before... More

Eating in Myrthios is a must if you are staying in the area, and the tavernas are excellent. The meals we had at Platia were some of the very best of our stay in Crete and the staff were very obliging and friendly. Highly recommended!

We walked up from Plakias to spend the evening here, and will definitely do so again. We ate lovely local food sitting on the edge of the world. Recommend the cheese pies, but everything was good. The biggest surprise came with the bill, because it was about 20% less than down in Plakias. (Note, as is normal around here, if... More

A very good choice to enjoy your dinner with panoramic view! Food was very good and the choice wider than in other tavernas (the "traditional" menu is completed with some daily specials), we particulary enjoyed the sweet surprise at the end of the dinner!
