We were on holiday in Platanias in June and ate at Drosia several times. Tried also couple of other restaurants but they couldn't beat this one! Drosia serves excellent cretan food with reasonable prizes and portions are good in size. Interesting menu and lots to choose from. We tried different dishes and all of them were so, so tasty. Try...

No flavour, one mouthful of meat in the main courses and everything must be out the freezer. Poor...poor..poor..worst restaurant out of 6 so far. Yuk!

I am not sure where the other reviewers of this restaurant went. It can hardly be the same place that served up such unappetising slop to us on our visit. It certainly bore the same name Drosia (Dross would suit better) Tasteless starter, inedible main course all bone, skin, fat and gristle. I can only surmise that the previous good... More

Good food, and the price was likeable. Not the cheapest but not the most expensive either. If you stay in Platanias, try the food at Drosia. Kalaadraamo.

The owner with his family is the heart of this place. Well made simple food with nice service. Excellent playground for kids! The housewines not so good.

Best food in Platanias, if you eat local food, not pastas or pizzas. Gourgette balls, Fried Zucchinis and Boureki are my favorites. Clean bathrooms, nice atmosphere and good service.

We went on holiday in July with friends and were recommended the Drosia by the lady who owned our villa. There were 7 of us and we loved it so much we didn't go anywhere else all week - the food was really gorgeous and the atmosphere and staff are so friendly and great fun. Their homemade olive oil is... More

We had been to the Drosia on several occasions while on holiday, before we moved to Crete premanently, and fell in love with the place. The owners are warm and friendly and always make people feel very welcome. The food is excellent ... always maintaining high standards in choice, taste and presentation.

We took our two young children to this restaurant for an evening meal. The menu has variety, and offers excellent value for money. The childrens menu offered more than other places we have visited and the food is good. What impressed us most was a glimpse into the kitchens; they looked immaculate. Chefs in hair nets, clearly very busy but... More

We found this taverna on our first night, just off the main high street, the owner and staff very friendly not pushy at all. Despite only meeting us on our 1st night remembered us when we returned 4 days later. The food was always hot and tasty and just the right amount, good value for money, and excellent service. We...
