The most important thing about this restaurant (the food) was really bad. The appearance and service in the restaurant were brilliant but the food really let it down. I've have meals at my local Wetherspoons far better than at Kantapi. The mixed grill I ordered seemed to be any sort of left over meat that was in the kitchen. It included a beef burger and frankfurter sausage.

Visited Kantapi Taverna twice during our recent stay and many times in the past too and we have never been disappointed. The setting is lovely with trees and vines overhead and it is hard to believe that you are actually eating on the main Platanias road. The menu is extensive, the food superb and the staff are fantastic. A little tip is.....if you love a wine with your meal try the house red or white as they are actually very very good. Try Kantapi it is a Superb Taverna.

I would recommend this restaurant for several reasons. First, it is very friendly for kids. The service is quick and the souvlaki with souces best (garlic and pepper are the best ones).

Located directly at the main street you would expect this to be a noisy place. And you were plainly wrong. Sitting under lemon trees and wine you will hear just a fountain and soft greek music.

The food is not exactly classy but of good quality. We had swordfish and it was much better than what you would expect in such a touristy place. They waiters are all connected with headphones and microphones, which is a bit spooky at first, but they are really friendly and perfectly willing to fulfill any special wishes.

When we made our reservation the day before, they let us choose a table. Much to our surprise: when we arrived the table was decorated with rose leaves and flowers. Nice gesture, guys!
