“Lovely family run restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 2, 2013

We have eaten at the Platanos Restaurant every evening of our holiday for the last five years and have never had a bad meal. The food is home cooked and traditionally Greek with the family who own it growing some of the vegatables and freshly catching the fish. The family cannot do enough for you and we have tasted dishes not usually on the menu but which have been cooked for themselves. The two members of staff who serve at the tables Panos and Dimitri are very helpful and friendly in fact the family who run the restaurant and the staff who work there have become more like friends and of course the view is amazing I could and probably have over the years spent hours looking out over the view - however dont just go in for the view the food is excellent too. Cant wait to return again next year.

“A surpising stop in the hire car”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 26, 2013

On our way back from Kastro in the hire car my friend asked if we would be driving back past this restaurant and if so could we stop and have a look. If it was empty we could just have a cold drink and go elsewhere. We arrived back at 2pm and struggled to find a parking space so realised it definitely was not going to be empty. The view over Skiathos town was stunning. We just had Freshly Squeezed Orange Juice, their Platanos Omelette and Greek Salad but it was very good and worth it for views alone. Wish we had kept the hire car longer so we could have tried it for dinner.

“great views and food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 21, 2013

We came here one lunch time. We hired a car so thought we would drive here. Met some people here who had walked and it took them an hour and a half. Lovely view and peaceful place. We both had moussakka which was very nice. Next time we come must try dinner.

“everything you want for your vacation”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 15, 2013

From coffee or breakfast to lunch or dinner, Platanos has everything you want to complete a wonderful day. Maybe the best view in Skiathos, you have the view of the village on your feet surrounded by the beautiful blue sea. Even on the hottest days, there you will find a cool breeze. The service is fantastic and everything we 've tried was delicious! You will not be disappointed!!!

“Very good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 15, 2013

A good place to relax and have some magic scenes of Skiathos island as well as of the surrounding islands. Be careful when driving to the restaurant, the road is sometime tricky. We enjoyed a coffee and soft drinks as well as a very delicious yogurt with honey. Take your photo machine with you
