This restaurant was near our hotel and we visited it a couple of times. Every time it had good food. Usually it is very crowded in the evening and I can totally understand it. They also had good service!

Well the restaurant was good with amazing location and good food for the price it was certainly worth the money. The downfall was the service, it was OK and could definitely be improved. The waiters were standing at the bar talking when we asked for the bill 3 times. The restaurant was good in a perfect location and great value... More

Kyano is located on the best sunset location in the area. Book to arrive 30 minutes before and you will be rewarded with an unforgettable treat. The food and service are second to none.

Kyano has been present in Platanias in many years now and we had a pleasure to visit this place several times during last 3 years.

In short: not good, not bad - but very much the same as many of the other restaurants of the area. Good location on the beach, an extensive menu, but no more than average food. Tried the mixed grill plate, pizzas for the children + sallads. Good, but not anything special albeit we expected more from previous ratings.

Go here! The location is spotless at the beach, away from the street pulse and noise. The food was excellent and can only be matched by the friendlyness of the staff, that were professional, attentive, talkative but not intrusive. If I visit Platanias again, this is were Ill eat.

We had lunch on two occasions at this restaurant whilst in Platanias. The service is excellent and the food of the highest quality. Highly recommend this for families and as you will see if you visit locals adore this place too. Not just for tourists!

Was a OK place, but we just had a coffee and a milkshake - the milkshake wasn't the best but the coffee was better.
