This was a lovely place and the welcome was enthusiastic. This place was recommended by the barman at our hotel. The food was nice but somehow it didn't quite hit the spot. Sort of promised more than we got if you know what I mean. Despite that we still had a nice time but won't say you must go.

We have visited Platanos a few times and it is always very delicious food with great service. They also accept credit cards. The setting is stunning day or night.

Situated in Platanos Square looking onto Hippocrates Plane Tree. Limited menu but food full of flavour and good portions. Side dishes not offered so you get exactly what it states on the menu. Friendly and attentive staff, comfy seating. Good wine list. Be prepared for the feline visitors who are very cute.

We only visited the cafe, because we were considering making a reservation at the restaurant later. Service - terrible. Although there were few other customers it took forever to get served. When we ordered coffees the waiter suggested a cake, and I ordered a brownie....I received a disgusting, cheap tasting chocolate cake drowned in cream with a blob of ice... More

The food here is so delicious, we ended up going back twice! The staff are friendly and the first time we went we were sat next to a dog who was owned by someone in the restaurant. They were so cute! Nice restaurant in a central location.
