Appetizers, salads and traditional Greek casseroles prepared with home-grown vegetables; olive-oil pressed locally from family olives; poultry raised in small numbers by relatives in Kattavia; traditional bread (choriatiko) fresh daily from the neighbouring bakery; fresh fish grilled perfectly, served with home-grown vegetables, herbs and olive oil. The kithchen, with professional appliances, was spotless, as was the grill, located in an adjoining room. Highest-quality food served graciously with the Greek "filoxenia".

It's nearly 30 years since I've been here. It's as good as I remember - maybe better. Food authentic, plentiful and super tasty. Loved it and have come back many times in the week I was in the area. Great coffee too! Family so friendly and welcoming I want to take them home.

I have just finished my first (and definitely not my last) visit to the stunning island of Rhodos in Greece. The highlight of my trip was the beautiful, authentic and welcoming village and people of Lachania - one thing that made this so excellent was Platanos Taverna.
Whether you want breakfast, lunch, dinner, simply a drink or a Frappe Platanos is outstanding. The food is so fresh and authentic - we ate out a lot but repeatedly kept coming back to this place as it was by far the best. Great value for money and with generous portion sizes and the most welcoming staff and family running this village institution. Do not miss the Moussaka.
Thank you so much to the Christodoulou family, especially Michaelis and Vassilis who really provide the best Greek food that Rhodos has to offer. I will be back!

I have been coming to Lachania since I was young, and Platanos has consistently been a great place to meet friends, eat meals and have a drink late into the night. The owners are family, they are so friendly and hardworking. Best of all, the food is consistently of an excellent standard! The food is fresh, really tasty and authentic to the region. Favourite dishes here include horta (wild spinach), beeftekia, tzatziki and the mousaka... The portion sizes are pretty fantastic too :) I would definitely recommend coming to Lachania and visiting Platanos; sitting under the big tree in the square, drinking an Ouzo and enjoying delicious food...

Whenever you come to Rhodes, Lachania and his lovely « Taverna Platanos » is an absolutely must. You’ll find the Taverna down the village in front of the church. The place is – in a good way - very simple, wooden tables and chaires placed around a very old tree, no superficial decoration, lovely few over the valley … In the morning and during day time you’ll find a very calm atmosphere, perfect for a little rest. By night the place fills up and you’ll sit in a still reposing and familiar atmosphère, served by Michalis , Vasillis (the two sons) and John, while father Manolis and the ladies controles the cooking and take care of the wonderfull traditional greec food in the open kitchen. All dishes are fresh cooked and the main menu changes all the time. There is no hurry and no one will try to kick you out to resell your table. Take your time, and feel - for a little while – part of a greec family.
Thanks to all of you !
