“hidden gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2014

Looked for a tavern away from main drag of Platanias and decided on Drosia great find.Welcomed minute we entered.It was early afternoon so had choice of seating and not rushed.Before ordering needed to use bathroom, facilities outstanding cleanliness best in 9 years of travelling crete.Food was very good,large portions good flavours[chef by trade aa rosette]and not pestered by continually being asked about food by staff.All in all a very enjoyable experience will be going back again and again.

“Platanias "hidden" pearl”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2014

Drosia is a family restaurant just 50m away from the Main Street and it's the best dining experience we've had so far in our stay! The restaurant itself is cosy, welcoming and child friendly (we're traveling with a one year old boy) the staff feels genuinely interested in your wellbeing and that you have a great dining experience. And we definitively did! The food (I had the lamb and my friend had the greek mix) tasted fresh, real and great! And the chocolate soufflé is hans down the best one I've ever had! (And I LOVE chocolate) so thank you Drosia for an evening to remember:) A place you cannot miss of you're here!

“Cozy family run tavern - good kids playground!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2014

Well worth money, nice food! Service maybe a little slow.

For our family of 2 adults & 3 kids under school, the playground was great. Been here many times, first time 4 years ago, now just 3 days ago. The place is the same, and the owner around taking good care of customers.

Playground is great, but you need to keep an eye on little ones, as it is not totally safe, meaning that bigger kids might overrun the smaller ones, many ways.

The bill for our family with many starters & wine arounf 50 euros.

“Not good at all.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2014

We had high expectations before after all the positive reviews but what we received was really worthless. The food had no taste, five different plates, no vegetables on five of them. The children's pizza was small and tasteless. Children can play but they can not eat properly. Maybe it is not expensive but I really want to pay double for more quality.
