A beautiful setting

A really welcoming, non pushy owner, and excellent beachside location. The food was really good with good size portions, would recommend.

The food was poor to average. Not all pricing and not great food. Pizza loaded with cheese. The staff on the other had were really very good, happy and spoke very good English and humoured my Greek.

we fell in love with this restaurant. The staff was very warm and welcoming. After dinner we always got a basket full of fresh fruit to choose from as a compliment from the restaurant, and the kids got icecream. Beautiful view over beach and beautiful sunset. Big portions with really good food. Recommend american burgers, but have to be hungry........ More

Visited this restaurant twice during our one week stay in July 2015. Travelling with a 2,5 yr old, we wanted a restaurant with playground. This place has it all: Next to the Beach, playground, nice selection of dished - and the portions are very well prepared and very large. Very friendly and serviceoriented staff. Highly recommendable.

A basic seafront restaurant, Greek style. Menu is decent and a bit all over the shop – mixed grill platters next to American hamburgers. Servings are large and unrefined rather than well executed. Children can easily share a dish and most adults will not finish their serving. We ordered Bolognese for the kids and they ate less than half each.... More

Garlic bread, tsatziki and baked feta for starter. The baked feta was so good that I will go back just to get it once more. Friendly staff and great location at the Beach. Ordered beef for main course and it tasted real good, plenty og vegetables and sause. This was my best meal during my 14 days stay in Platanias.
