This is an excellent family restaurant, modern in style but still with the distinct Cretan flavours, Excellent service, with waiters efficient, friendly and professional. Whilst the owner is Danish, nevertheless the food is Greek but with a hint of other European countries on the menu to choose from. We did not have one bad meal out of the five we... More

Dining at Symposium was a memorable experience for all the right reasons. The food was tasty and well presented whether it was a traditional Greek dish or dishes with a Nordic influence. Absolutely worth a visit.

A pleasant experience. The restaurant is owned by a danish girl, and they serve good food which equals the prices. We were there 3 years ago and had excellent food, this time a little more average, but absolutely worth the money.

This restaurant has good food but no soul at all, think that one such exposed place would have more soul! The prices are not in line with what is delivered to the table! Maybe I'm wrong but that's how I understood it when I visited this restaurant.

Good restaurant in the platanias area, a bit pricey. We sat indoors, since it was getting late and cold. The food was okay, the service was good. Nothing special about it really.

One of the best restaurants in Platania, and why not, perhaps one of the best restaurant in town !Great atmosphere and in the dining room, a white-clothed stretch of tables lines the walls, and attentive smiling waiters sweep efficiently up and down. Whichever cut of beef you choose , it's so melt-in-your-mouth that the sauces served on the side seem... More
