“Fabulous food and friendly service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2013

We stayed at Yakinthos Hotel (virtually next door) and not only did we eat quite a few evening meals here, we also had days around Piato's pool. We were treated like friends even on the first visit to this restaurant. Jerry works the tables and is very friendly and always has time to speak to everyone. Mama does the cooking and the food is excellent. Papa helps out on the tables with the drinks and is funny, teaching us Greek. A very pleasant atmosphere whether day or evening. Definately worth a visit or two!

“Fantastic atmosphere marvellous mousaaka”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2013

We went to this restaurant on our first night and never looked back. The meal was home cooked and the menu was very varied. We enjoyed it so much that after trying other tavernas and restaurants in the area we went back nearly every night during our holiday. We only had a short walk as we were staying at Yakinthos hotel.
It is a family run business. Jerry the son serves and makes sure all is well and speaks very good English, his father Manolis did not speak very much English but was very friendly and made you feel welcome. Mother Yanna who was in charge of all the cooking makes a great beef stfado and I have never tasted mousaaka as nice anywhere.
I would say that the service and friendliness of this restaurant gives a homely feeling. Would recommend you visit if you are in the area. It is on the road from chania to platenaes.

“Fantastic!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2013

So good we ate there several times! Wonderful family run business and the moussaka is amazing! The chocolate soufflé is a must too! We stayed at the wonderful yakinthos hotel next door so this was super handy. Wonderful warm family and better quality food than most of the restaurants in Chania. Highly recommend
