“Worth the effort to get up here!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2012

What a great view - we had lunch at this extremely laid back restaurant, and we are so glad that wemade the effort. Nice food, friendly service and the best views on the island.

“Top views, very good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2012

We were told about Platanos Restaurant from some friends and decided to visit. The views were beautiful (early evening), sky was clear and you could see Glossa village. The food was great, environment was very friendly and the service was what we expected. I would recommend this cafe-restaurant to anyone that likes great views, in a friendly environment, away from the fuss of the busy town.

“Paying for the view? No, thanks”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2012

Second worst restaurant in Skiathos. When you go there via winding roads up the hill, you would expect to be amazed by the view but also by service and food. Well, beside that view, you get a long waiting for the waiter to come, for the dishes to be ready, for somebody to bring the bill. Another great prove that when somewhere there is a view, you don't need to expect something else.

“a view to die for”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2012

The view of the town is breathtaking and well worth the drive up to the restaurant. An extra landing has been added to the restaurant this year for outdoor seating. The food and service is always excellent. Well worth a visit.
