We booked a package through one of the hotels, which included a 3 course meal at Platia. A set menu was given to us, in order to choose from. Everything from starters, mains and desserts was very tasty. The food was well presented on the plate. Worth a visit.

This place is amazing!!!! I love the food and the service. Me and my fiance have never been to a restaurant where we were treated like royalty. The lady Shyleen treated us with so much of respect, she was very friendly. We had a blast. Even though they have been busy, the food was delivered to our table very promptly.... More

Platia, is one of those places to go to when you want to have a fun evening out. The belly dancer is amazing and later Greek dancing and throwing of the plates adds to the fun. Food is delicious and service is top notch.

I had a lovely vegetarian meal at Platia. The menu has a good selection of different dishes. The hummus was something special. The only concern I have was that the waiting staff left me with a finished plate for 10 minutes before noticing I was ready to move on to pudding. Perhaps i was not very patient because i was...

We have been going to Platia at Emperors Palace for many years and we have never been disappointed or had any bad experiences there. Sofia, the owner is the best hostess and always goes out of her way to ensure that all patrons are happy and treated like family. There is no booking too big or too small (we asked... More
