Review of Finikas Taverna

Finikas Taverna
Ranked #3 of 17 Restaurants in Platanias
Certificate of Excellence
Cuisines: Greek
Description: Finikas restaurant is ​​located in one of the most beautiful and quiet parts of Platanias and serves quality greek food since 1997. It is addressed to anyone, local or foreign, who wants to enjoy pure clean food, and is very friendly to families with small children, since it has a playground and the road that passes in front of it is private. Finikas restaurant owned by Motaki family, with extensive experience in catering. The principle applied is: "We do not serve what we do not want to be served to us." At the end of May 2016 the major renovation of the space was completed, so, even those who visit us for many years, will see a very different, more functional and more beautiful restaurant, but with the same insistence on the quality of the food served. We invite you to see up close and we are sure you will be satisfied.

Fantastic food and true Greek hospitality at this hidden gem. Have eaten here several times and never been disappointed. It's a little off the beaten track but well worth the short walk. Prices are good and the service second to none. One of our favourite restaurants in Platanes. Honestly, do not miss it.

We found this restaurant while we were walking to the beach and visited last night for dinner. The staff were friendly and attentive and the food was outstanding. It was also very reasonably priced. We will definitely be returning before we fly home.

Really tasty food and friendly staff. A great alternative to the main strip and cheaper than lots of mediocre places.

Situated off the main road, so quiet as no road noise. Went here several times. Staff were friendly and remembered us each time we went back. Food was lovely and none of us had any bad meals. The soutzoukakia (meatballs) were the best I’ve ever had. Was cheaper than some of the other restaurants we visited even though it was a better class of restaurant. There is a play park for younger children to.
