“Good restaurant, but nothing amazing”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2013

I went to Kyano with my wife for dinner. As it is usual in Crete, the service was very good. All the waiters were very friendly and the service was impeccable. We ordered seafood and the food is not at all remarkable. I had the grilled octopus, that was a little bit overcooked and not as tender as it was supposed to be and my wife had the sword fish, that was bland. The baklava, though, was very good. It gives a good value for the buck, but do not expect anything amazing.

Tripadvisor is really a great place to get honest and reliable customer feedback!

We'll take this review as an opportunity to thank all of you reviewers for your time and comments regarding our business. Some of them were overwhelming, others inspiring and others challenging, but surely all of them absolutely necessary and taken into account.
We reached 100+ and we're really happy about it!
Thanks so much, your words are what keeps us going, and we'll try to be better!

Honest Regards,
Kyano team

Very nice location at seaside, large parking available. Staff was very pleasant, during two weeks we spent at Platanias we were there at least 6 times. Try mussels

“This is definitely not the best restaurant in Platanias!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2013

I read the earlier reviews and expected much better. We had lunch at Kyano and the food was very average. I ordered the shrimp and avocado and had to play 'hunt the shrimp' in the piles of cocktail sauce on the avocado. Service was very good but food just very average and not very good at all. Cozmo just a little further along the beach has much nicer food and even better service. I would not recommend making a special trip to visit Kyano to be honest.
