Good view, friendly staff, nice food

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... read 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.......

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.

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 can see that some people are saying this place have averange food and service, i guess they prefer mcdonalds then. Beacause at this place the waitor takes time to talk to their coustumers and they are very polite. I prefer their grilled food here, and have never been disapointed. I will cut some points when it comes to dessert... More
