Really huge platters of fish or meat

This resturant is upstairs and you need to sit at the back overlooking the sea for best position and cooler seating in the summer. This is the place to go for big platters. We had the mixed grill platter that 4 of us could not finish so don't have a starter. There is a very clean and well equipped... read more

A trusted local recommended this restaurant. My rule of thumb is that whenever there is an aggressive doorman inviting you in, pictures of the food on menus and a cheezy waiter making the same tired jokes, its not a good sign for food. This was the case here. You have many better possibilities in Platanias.

The food was good but the service was poor. If you want to wait and wait and wait, go to Diogenis.

We have visited several restaurants to choose the most appropriate one. This place become our favourite and we desided not to change any more. Delicious food, good prices and portions as well as good mood. Always we have got something extra"from the house" after. Very cordially! Would highly recommend
