“Good food and a great location ”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 3, 2014 via mobile

After reading reviews we were expecting a line since we arrived a bit late, but for small parties (2-3 ) we were let in with no wait. The service was very friendly, but it was apparent that some of the staff was not up to par with what the restaurant aims to be. The chefs on the other hand was excellent and the owners have made a nice blend between cuisine and greek food. If you are in the platanias area this is a place you do not want to miss.

“Best restaurant in Platanias!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 27, 2014 via mobile

Came across this restaurant just randomly while doing other things. We heard The restaurant was almost booked out so we decided to get a quik table before others did. Got a table on The second floor with a view against The walking street. Compared to the other restaurants in Platanias, this is fine dining. They have a good many with seafood, steaks, local food and italian dishes. The selection of drinks is also good. We tried mussels, and made The starter plate to a bigger main plate. The best mussel meal i have ever tasted. If Im comeing back i would not hesitate to eat here. It might be necesarry to book a head.
