If you haven't been to Platia, you haven't been to Agia Galini! Best Mojito (yes, the spoon is a straw), pasta and tapas. Great people.

I was not urged to hurry up due to closing the bar, even more I... More

We arrived at Cafe Platia at 1.50pm to be shown the menu. However 5 minutes later the owner came to our table to say that they stop serving lunches at 2pm but we were welcome to stay and have a drink. He mentioned that they are on the go from 8.30am so they need the break. We went to Onar... More

The Platia bistro is a charming place with a big terrace in the center of Agia Galini. Vangelis the owner welcomes you like no one else and serves you typical cretan specialities (fresh home made food) but not only! Please give a try to "the best mojito in town", you won't be disappointed!
