Great view, average food

The view is spectacular and the location is nice and cosy. The service is good and the food is good, but not great. Definetly worth the climb. Great view of the sunset.

positives: beautiful view. Decent prices. Negatives: they gave a vegetarian who expressly pointed out that they were vegetarian a mushroom crepe with ham in it. Cheese pies were dry and flavourless. Pasta had hard lumps in it like it was out of date. Pretty awful experience all in all. Service lax. Couldn't wait to get out of there.

The taxi driver suggested this restaurat to us when we was asking dinner with nice view. The view is magnificent from upper/old town of Platanias. There are only few tables to see sun set but views to other sides are good too. Dinner was good and serving was big. The time between order and service was long.

It's a long steep walk up to Vigli, so a tip is to leave your high heels at home and put on your comfy shoes! It's on the highest point in Old Town and it's really worth loosing your breath for. The view up here is amazing! Staff was very friendly and service was excellent. I ordered Dakos for starters... More

The food was really poorly made,I orded a stifado ,which can be a great dish, not good.! The service was ok ,I didn`t pay for the food ,but I left still hungry. So if the view is important visit Vigli,we were very disappointed...one word to remember ,the mother seldom works in the kitchen.......

After visiting various restaurants in the old part of town I wandered into Vigli. It is a nice restaurant with a great view. I only had a Cretan salad but it tasted fine (I don't believe it was on the menu but they were kind enough to make it for me anyway) and some nice fresh juice mix that was... More

The food we ordered was Beef Fillet, the most was ok but the garnish on side was nothing special, salad was good but it was nothing on the salad like dressing or oil or something, and the baked potato should have something in it like spicy butter or somthing else, the sauce was good. Dessert was not any special either,... More

We had a lovely home made dinner, greek style, with tasteful local wine, a wonderful view and excellent service at Vigli Restaurant in Upper Platanias. We would recommend you to choose this as one of your choices for dinner in Crete.
