We visited on a voucher for seafood platter which I must say was an excellent meal. Taste and freshness of meal was very pleasing. Friendly and prompt service service was first grade. Our platter consisted of John Dory fillet, Calamari, Prawns, Oysters, Chips, Salad all cooked to perfection. We also enjoyed wines and port and finished with baklava & coffee.... More

Ordinary. Slothful service. Bad wine by the glass. Good quality souvlaki, beautifully cooked chicken. Tasty lamb. Ordinary bread for this day and age. Olives that tasted like anchovies. And they won't let you take leftovers home. Seriously not good value unless you had a groupon voucher. Sorry guys you have very classy competition and you need to be taking it... More

I had high expectations of this restaurant, which were not met. The menu is small & had insufficient vegetarian options. There were no vegetarian mains, and no spanakopita or feta cigars or anything of interest. The dips were average, over garlicky & in too small a portion. The only positive was the home made bread, but it really wasn't a... More

We went there for our office Christmas lunch. Instead of ordering from the menu, we left it to the waiter to provide a "banquet" of tasting plates. They must have read our minds because they kept bringing out dishes that we all wanted and enjoyed and in the right size. Service was excellent and food was great. Was not too... More

We were looked after well and experienced great service. The food was very tasty and we really enjoyed our meal. A drunk and crazy woman came in while we were there and the staff handled her so well, with care, respect and consideration. We were impressed.

we dined at Cafe Platia as my wife had a Groupon coupon. I have to say we both had Calamari for Entree and it would have to be in the best we've ever had. Main courses were very good and so was desert. Excellent value. Nick was a great ambassador and host.

We had dinner here a 3 course meal , dips for starters with supposedly home made bread, yes it was home made but at the bakery. Dips nothing special. Main chicken skewers , potato, it was ok, some pita bread would have been nice to have with the chicken. Dessert was a dry piece of cake with cherry syrup which... More

My boyfriend and I went last weekend and the food was amazing! The meat was incredibly tender (we had the platter) and the salad very fresh. Service was also excellent.

Food was fine but staff were very rude and unpleasant. When we asked to clarify what we should have recieved with our order we were dismissed and met with distain. Paying on card instead of cash was also made an issue, as owner grumbled that he would have to pay a small fee. If you're just looking for a good... More
