“Great view and good food but... ”
Reviewed August 4, 2014 via mobile

Well the restaurant was good with amazing location and good food for the price it was certainly worth the money. The downfall was the service, it was OK and could definitely be improved. The waiters were standing at the bar talking when we asked for the bill 3 times. The restaurant was good in a perfect location and great value for money but lacking good service.

“Beautiful location - Fabulous Food”
Reviewed August 4, 2014

Kyano is located on the best sunset location in the area. Book to arrive 30 minutes before and you will be rewarded with an unforgettable treat. The food and service are second to none. We were a family group of carnivores, vegetarians and vegans and all were catered for splendidly. One to return to and certainly highly recommended. The fresh sea bream is especially good by the way.

“Best beach restaurant in Platanias”
Reviewed July 25, 2014

Kyano has been present in Platanias in many years now and we had a pleasure to visit this place several times during last 3 years. Our recent visit with a couple of friends confirmed our positive opinion of Kyano. You basically sit on the beach and in the evening you can enjoy a beautiful sunset, while consuming a well prepared dinner, served profesionally, but in a relaxed manner. The restaurant offers a wide selection of dishes, including Cretan specialities (I believe they serve lamb prepared in wood oven on Sundays) and international mainstream food. Everything is fresh and nicely presented, while not being a high-end gourmet experience, which Kyano does not aim to be. You can enter the restaurant either from the main road in Platanias, where a large parking space is available, or from the sea side, like we did many times, simply walking from our hotel. Visit this very pleasant restaurant on the side of all noise and nightlife of Platanias and enjoy beautiful meals and impressive nature ambience, which Crete is known for.

“Quite ordinary for the area”
Reviewed July 16, 2014 via mobile

In short: not good, not bad - but very much the same as many of the other restaurants of the area.

Good location on the beach, an extensive menu, but no more than average food. Tried the mixed grill plate, pizzas for the children + sallads. Good, but not anything special albeit we expected more from previous ratings.

“Just perfect”
Reviewed July 7, 2014

Go here!

The location is spotless at the beach, away from the street pulse and noise. The food was excellent and can only be matched by the friendlyness of the staff, that were professional, attentive, talkative but not intrusive.

If I visit Platanias again, this is were Ill eat.
