We ate here twice. The first time we had the best mezze but sadly were disappointed when we ate there for the second time. However, the place is always packed and we were just unlucky in our choice of food on our second visit. A very pretty restaurant and good service.

We had a few meals here while we were staying at the Leoniki Residence. The welcome was friendly although the waiter did push us to order more plates of food for our starter than we needed and, consequently, we were unable to finish the main course and the meal ended up quite expensive. The restaurant can get crowded but there is a garden area at the back - behind the TV if you don't want to watch it while you are having your meal. After our first visit, we declined any invitation to order more and just had what we had chosen which was the best option.

We tried many other restaurants in Platanes but kept returning here for wonderful, fresh food and a warm welcome. The restaurant offers a wide ranging menu and nothing disappointed from basic salads to mixed grill for 2. The best in Platanes!

We have been coming to this taverna for nearly ten years and we have recommended it in the past but unfortunately reputations built up over many years can quickly be spoiled. Having declined the fish which was being pushed my wife ordered lamb kleftiko, the plate came loaded with chips, rice and mixed vegetables and greens with some lamb bones. I "enjoyed" another Greek classic, rabbit stifado which also came with the unwanted mass of chips etc. together with the attached kidneys in an onion stew purporting to be genuine Cretan cuisine.

Sorry but it was probably our last visit. When the waiter has to ask "how was everything" and sees two plates hardly touched and the comment "well what do you think", free cake and ouzo doesn't make everything ok.
