Very hard to fault this place. Centrally located in platanias, very tasteful decor with comfortable seating and music that isn’t overbearing. Found this to be easily one of the classier bars in Crete, and although it’s a little more expensive than most, the quality is...comfortably worth the extra. Cocktails generally in Crete are poor in the majority of bars but we tried many different ones here and were always impressed, felt more London quality than Crete! We ate each time we visited and the food was also on point. Had a rib eye steak that was delicious and perfectly cooked. Sushi was very good although perhaps a little dry, I think that adding a dragon roll or similar to the menu would add a little more variety. Complimentary dessert both times, not to my partners palette as she doesn’t like chocolate but I adored both. Lastly the staff - outstanding. It’s a family run business and they could not have been friendlier, more helpful or more welcoming - worth returning if only for the level of service! Didn’t hurt that both male and female staff were easy on the eye also! My only problem, is that I told them we would be back on our last night but ended up staying at the beach too long and so didn’t make it to say goodbye to them! Awesome place and wish it was in my hometown. All the best to the team!More

The worst experience I had in a bar and I can guarantee you that this bar is the worst ever I have seen. They try to make you fool with the bills. They ( piece of … people )charge you double of the bill and...everytime you order they will steal money from you. Not only this but the they give you spoiled ice cream and if we wouldn’t be aware of that we could end in hospital. So folks don’t spend your money in there. It’s not worth it.More

Cafe Cafe Cocktail & Gin Bar As the name say, you have to taste some of the Gin drink they have…..fantastic. We try several time the Pink Gin, Pepper Gin and Chili Gin. The owner and staff are very nice people, and the really remember...you ever times. They are funny, and have a lot of recommendations for beverage and food. The owner is a fantastic Gentleman. This is A MUST PLACE when in Platanias. This is in the middle of centrum in Platanias, and you have nice view of what happens at the Square of Platanias. Try also the James Bond drink Martini, "Shaken, not stirred", but Café Café recommend stirredMore

Night and day...from other places i tried it. Thumbs up and we will be back in a couple of weeks :)More

Right in the middle of all the hustle and bustle of Platanias and, arguably, serving the best cocktails in town. We sampled several, all were great and the MaiTai brought us back to our trips to Maui - unfortunately sans the whales. But the best...part is the friendly and personable staff who takes the time to greet and talk to the guests.More
