Excellent Greek Cretan Cuisine is only at the Waves Restaurant of Platanias at Chania. Many choices for everyone – meat, seafood, pastas, pizza, salads. Casual atmosphere, friendly and professional staff. Portions are hearty and prices very reasonable. Awesome and clean swimming pool. Perfect playground for the children. Hope to be back soon.
