This restaurant has the best view in Platanias. It needs a little more walking to the uppermost top of the hill, but it is worth of it. Traditional food and family members in charge is always a good combination. And the quality of the food is based on best materials and original olive oil. (You can taste the difference if... More

I wouldn't come her for the food again, but I'd come anytime for the sunset view: spectacular.

Food was average and over priced. Bill was illegible and made no sense and the staff were grumpy when I challenged it. Yes the view is spectacular but go elsewhere.
