“Bravo! Keep up the great work”
Reviewed September 28, 2013

After hearing how great it is, we decided to give Ariadne a try.

It had a fun atmosphere, with friendly servers and people in general. Everyone (including other customers) had a great attitude and the servers were not only servers, but also entertainment for the many tables there. It was clear that everybody enjoyed being there. We went on a Wednesday night so they had the weekly fireworks next door. We were welcomed by bruchetta and fava (pureed split peas) which were lovely. The chicken salad was one of the best salads that I have had in a long time, and the seafood plate was delicious as well. At the end they brought out the best millefeuille that I have tasted (and normally I don't like millefeuille).

We will be coming back again. Would highly recommend.

although the answer comes belatedly thank you so much for your kind words. Reload this year again our menu and I challenge you to tell us what dessert you do not like so we can prepare it and love it - as happened with the millefeuille! I am joking of course! Υοu are always welcome !

“Perfect!”
Reviewed August 22, 2013

Every time we bring friends to Platanias, we take them to Ariadne, because we know that they will like it. Good food and super waiters. Even if the restaurant is full, they smile, sing and make you feel so good. See you next year guys!!

“The service could be more friendly”
Reviewed August 18, 2013

We went here once. Because of the good Tripadvisor review and because of the location on the beach. The food was very good. We chose the mix platter with different greek specialities. It can be recommended! We were five people, and the table which had been reserved for us, was a round table next to the beach. Good. However, the service could be improved. We asked it the mixed platter for two persons could be made for three persons. But, the answer was no. No explanation why. No smile. Hmmmm.... Also, although the location next to the beach is beautful, it is even more beautiful on the Kyano Beach Restaurant were you are actually sitting on the beach--that is, on the lawn under some trees. And comparing prices, Ariadne is more expensive than our favorite the Kyano Beach Restaurant. I also wonder why--when the menu is in both greek, english and swedish--the bill is in greek? That said, the restaurant is among the better ones in Platanias.

Although the delay of our answer, we would like to thank you for taking the time to write your review. We really like to tell us what you (our customers) did not like in order to improve. According to the bill - you have a point - but you should have asked for details to not feel strange about the money you had to pay. According to the mix grill, it is not so easy for the kitchen to change the ingredients or quantities because that will effect the varius factors such as the costing of dishes, etc. It is no coincidence that Ariadne exists almost 30 years thanks to the relationship quality-price. Hope to see you again! Keep smiling !!!
