“Very pleasant evening with friendly staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2013

We had very nice meal here. We arrived about 9pm and all the sea bass was gone so get there early if you want the special. Staff very friendly but service a bit slow as very busy but we were in no rush so really not an issue if you are relaxed. Cocktail waiter was fab and we even got a complementary cocktail. Food really great value for money. Would recommend.

“Stavros and Kellari Restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2013 via mobile

I think Kellari is a great restaurant in Platanes Rethymnon Crete Greece. The service is great and the food is great and the music and apmersephere and value for money is great. Stavros and his staff are great. Go to Kellari when you are in Platanes Rethymnon Crete Greece

“Best restaurant by far in the area”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2013

Just returned from a week in the Platanias area. We dined at Kellari every other evening, trying other restaurants in between. None could compare. The food quality at Kellari is head and shoulders above other restaurants, especially those that display pictures of the dishes outside (Kellari does not).

Our party had steak, chicken, pasta and lamb dishes. All were cooked to perfection, with accompanying salads and vegetables. As others have said, Stavros is a great host, and our server Donia was equally charming. Very reasonable prices, a wide range of selection on the menu - and Stavros brings Ouzo to the table at the end of every meal. Fantastic!

“A very charming, friendly and memorable Taverna”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2013

Kellari is my favourite Taverna in Platanias. I found the service to be excellent and the food always tasty and satisfying - empty plates every time! The host, Stavros, is a true gentleman and very friendly and genuinely charming, always in great humour. With our meals, we received numerous little extras which were kindly given with the meal and not billed. Very pleasant atmosphere as if being invited into Stavros' home for tea. Heartily recommended, well worth more than one visit!

“Great food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2013

You must try the Greek meze here but make sure you are hungry. The courses just kept coming but we weren't rushed in any way. The staff were very friendly and accommodating.
