“One of the very best!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2013

Have just returned from a great holiday in Skiathos and must note that Platanias is without doubt an excellent taverna. Service and food is exceptional as is the overall ambience. A must for all who know, expect and appreciate the very best in dining.

“best taverna in Agia Paraskevi”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2013

This taverna is a gem, tucked away opposite the beach, with a great menu and really tasty fresh food. They don't use 'boil in the bag' stuff, it's all cooked from whole produce and they put lots of little extras in to make meals a bit more special. For example, their crispy home made chips come with a nice extra of oregano sprinkled on top and their lamb chops too, which are really yummy! The staff are so welcoming and cannot do enough for you - they all speak extremely good English and you can have a bit of a good laugh and banter with them too!. The decor and ambience is excellent, with yellow tablecloths, lots of potted plants around and ambient lighting including little oil lamps on each table. Adjacent to the taverna is their Bar area where you can have a nice aperitif before your meal or an after dinner drink to end the evening with. We tried other places in Skiathos but they never matched up to the Platanias Taverna. Definitely a great place to dine.

“Great grub”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2013

Just returned from another holiday to Aghia Paraskevi and although we've been to this resort several times, this was our first visit to Platanias. The food was wonderful (Loved the home made dip that arrived with the bread) and all the staff were extremely charming. Nikos especially is a very cheeky character. A welcome drink was given to us on our arrival (haven't had this in any of the other restaurants here) and also a drink and coffee was given to us at the end of the meal, which was much appreciated. Would definately reccomed Platanias and will return next year for sure.

“Platanias Taverna & Bar: Restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2013

Just arrived home from another wonderful holiday in Skiathos. Had the most fabulous meals again at the Platanias Taverna. Nikos and his very friendly and very efficient staff looked after us so well. Brilliant menu. This is one taverna you don't want to miss out on.
