“Excellent place, really good food!”
Reviewed May 24, 2013

Platanos is really nice both in the inside area, with old photographs on the walls and beautiful colors, as well as at the outside, with the big maple tree spreading its thick shade over the square and the river murmuring a few meters below. The food was also very, very, very good -- good quality materials and nicely cooked. The service was polite without exaggerating.
And another thing: although the square is quite big, there is generous free space left between the tables, which makes you feel very comfortable. I hope they keep it that way during the summer!

“Always Perfect”
Reviewed May 8, 2013 via mobile

Every trip to Kythera has to include time in this lovely square. It is the heartbeat of this quaint village.

Kalliope and her staff always serve the best and freshest Greek food. The surrounding is perfect, and so is the food and the service.
Cant fault it.

“Nice place”
Reviewed October 29, 2012

Nice place in this beautiful small village. You can have a coffee and some sweets there under the shadow of the trees, early in the morning or in the afternoon. If you go to Mylopotamos village, choose the awesome Kalami beach to swim (after some adventure to get there)

“A place to sit for hours”
Reviewed October 1, 2012

Sitting in the middle of Milopotamos under some huge plane trees (hence the name of the café restaurant), with views towards the bell tower and old watermill, you can sit here for hours. Take a look inside as well, as the old restaurant has a beautiful tile floor.

“Best dinner I had in Kythera”
Reviewed August 15, 2012

Typical greek cuisine, we ordered more than we could handle, but the food was simply delicious. Stuffed courgette flowers, local Potamos saugage, oven baked potatoes and the Kytherial salad (huge portion) where among the top plates that we ordered. Not cheap, not overpriced. Service was fast, even on a busy night. The location is amazing, under a huge tree, which makes restaurant Platanos a winner after all!
