We had booked the table the day before, taking every night was full house. We got a nice table outside. However, the waiting time before there came a servant and took the order for quite some time ... the food was really delicious. We were, respectively, salmon and a very delicious chicken. The resturant served a lovely chocolate mousse at... More

This is an excellent family restaurant, modern in style but still with the distinct Cretan flavours, Excellent service, with waiters efficient, friendly and professional.

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.
