If you're looking for a quiet night, look elsewhere. If you're looking for outstanding food, lively service, and a fun atmosphere, look no further. Do yourself a favor, though, and book a taxi rather than drive and battle with the hill and parking.

Nice place with an owner, "Jørgen", who makes a welcoming atmosphere together with friendly staff. Good food served with the view of Platinas and Agia Marina. A playroom with games which occupied the kids.

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.
