Description: Astrea starting operating in 2000 introducing the Cretan, the Greek and the Mediterranean cuisine to its customers. From the moments you enter the restaurant, you will feel a member of Fandridakis family. The owner Mr. George is at the door to welcome you. Everything here at Astrea is well taken care to the last detail. The decoration, the food and the service. But, what makes Astrea distinguish is the magnificent view, which enchants every visitor. The restaurant organizes traditional Cretan nights three times a week.

We (2 adults and 1 three-years-old) ate here during a one-week holiday in Platanias. The view on the coast and island below was marvellous, the place seemed to be very busy (of all the restaurants in upper Platanias it was by far the fullest) and of course very touristic, but the food was nice and the staff attentive and amusing. We had fried calamari and zucchini balls for starter, grilled prawns and souvlaki for main course, all of them very nice. The staff kept coming with free ouzo and ice cream which was nice. Recommended.
