We came here after a 5 hour walk in the mountains. We were very hungry and definitely in need of a refreshing beer. The evening exceeded our expectations. Simple but very good food. Fantastic service and genrral hospitality. Will go back very soon.

Platanos is delicious. Me and my girlfriend ordered the house white wine, tzatziki, the Greek salad, the meatballs, and the roasted pork for around 20-25 Euro. The meatballs melted in your mouth. Everything was exquisite and very inexpensive. Easily accessible as well from the city...More
