During our visit to the Triodes Mountains in June 2016, we detoured via Pano Platres on the strength of this little institution's recommendations. It was, truth to be told, a pretty wide detour given the village's position in the heart of the mountains - however, every kilometre driven proved to be worth the effort. We are very widely travelled and... More

This friendly and highly knowledgable chocolatier is a gem in Platres. The chocolates are delicious - I recommend the salted caramel.

Visited the place with a few friends after lunch at platres. The owner was the highlight of the shop. He knows he's chocolates and very welcoming. Chocolates are exotic with a touch of cyprus. Would recommend if u have time to spare.

A very knowledgeable couple in chocolate, they tell you where they get their cocoa beans from and why, you can try different chocolates, ice cream, book a workshop, all in all a good couple of hours well spent.

In terms of what we saw it was just a shop. You need to book for a workshop I guess. Very nice man and let us try things but he doesn't know when to stop - trying to leave is nearly impossible. Bought a little box of chocolates and they are fine and have a lot of history but he... More

This is a must see if you are anywhere near the Troodos mountains on Cyprus. John is nice and the mastermind behind the establishment. He is a master chocolatier! and has a wealth of knowledge. His passion for chocolate is inspiring! It is a bit expensive, but it is top quality chocolate.

Best chocolates we have had in Greece are made here. The woman who runs and owns the place was very friendly and delightful to talk to. We had lovely chocolates and wish we were not travelling for a long period or we would have taken many more with us. The story goes the owners decided to open up this place... More

A place you can learn about chocolate and taste different types. Not very cheap as quality is never cheap but worth it.

Probably the best choc's you can buy! - a big statement but the quality of the chocolates is second to non - they used to have a charming little workshop in the back streets but lease issues mean they are now in the high street in a shop so some of the charm has gone and you cant really seem...
