Excellent food and value for money. We will certainly eat there again this year, probably more than once

The taverna is located under the old Plane Tree (Platanos) in St. George's Square in the old centre of Poros. The excellent local meat is supplied by the, yet again, local farm butcher in the same square and if you have never tasted spit roast suckling pig of this quality you do not know what you are missing, it must be their signature dish. I live on the island and until the new owners took over it was pretty hit and miss but the new young owners have tried so hard to make it special again. It has surged by a few stars this year and not only is the wine from the barrel drinkable at last, it must be the best on the island!
It is certainly surging in popularity and deserves support for quality food, drink and service in a quiet location with a buzz.
Try their other roast 'Kokoretsi' which is made with sheep offal and is like a Scottish haggis without the oatmeal, but first of all suckling pig, oh yes!

In our opinion Platanos Taverna is the best restaurant on Poros Island, and we gladly recommend it to everybody!
We have spend almost all our holydays on Poros for the last 20 years, so we have tried quite a deal of the tavernes and restaurants.
The owner of Platanos - Elias and the chef Eleni - and off course the whole staff are all extremely polite, friendly and helpful.
The food is exellent and very well prepared by the chef Eleni, and everything is served very nice, and their own whitewine is the best!
The menu is very wide, you can have nice greek cuisines and a lot of other nice dishes.
Platanos is situated in a nice and quiet place up in the old town of Poros, under a big Platan-tree at Saint Georges Square - ask anybody in Poros town how to get there, if you cant find it yourselves.
We are looking very much forward to be back on Poros and Platanos in September 2012.

Every time we visit Poros we go to Platanos. It's a family run restaurant and they're always really friendly and run eir own butchers so great meat.
We always eat the baby pig on the spit-it's so tasty, as are the a baby cheese pies. We have tried a lot of cheese pies on Poros and decided that these are our favourites!
Decent barrell wine and our meal is always really cheap. It's lovely dining outside by the bug tree in the square.
Definitely would recommend this restaurant. It's away from the main harbour so you get a lovely intimate atmosphere.
