Last year we visited by coincidence and were very satisfied. Our recent visit challenged our concept of dining again in a very positive manner. Not only very friendly people but amazingly creative cousiné embracing new hints in traditional dishes. Thank you Vasilis & Katerina :)

It was very spoentaneously we found the Horizon. They are in a village called Platanos in Samos. It is not too much touristic and not known very well. But you should see this village for the Horizon. I ate the best lamb and risotto. They have very good wines. The restaurant location is amazing you can see half of Samos... More

Apart from the breathtaking view over the western part of Samos - from Votsoulakia on the south over the impressive Kerkis mountains to Karlovassi in the north - Orizontas serves excellent and outstanding greek cuisine. Trust their daily specials. And enjoy the friendly and courteous service. Platanos is worth a visit anyway - Orizontas makes it a must.

This restaurant is located in the village Platanos. It is 1 hour drive from Vathy town, and around 15 minutes from Karlovasi. There are two reasons to go eat at Orizontes. Firstly and mostly the exceptional food. The dishes are not something you will find elsewhere on Samos. They are not traditional but you can clearly understand the are made... More

This tavern may not seem much compared to the ones at small plaza. But here you get a very good meal made from good ingredients, which you can both see and taste. Everything is done with a smile and on top of that, you have the greatest view across the island from north to south. Go there. Leon at the... More

Love love love this little gourmet restaurant! Everything is homegrown and you can really taste it. If you have the chance make sure you try the courgette flowers stuffed with rice and chickpea fritters. In fact I'm sure that everything is good - even a simple Greek salad tastes fantastic. A family affair, run by food alchemist Vasilis and his... More

If you go for a fancy restaurant you will be disappointed, but for sure that's all the dissapointment you will get. Mouth watering dishes cooked with a twist, Vasilis' gastronomy is exceptional. From salat to the most complicated dish, this guy not only loves to cook, but he cooks with love. Undoubtely a well hidden gem; glad we discover it!... More

Stunning view combined with, probably, the best cuisine on the island. Vasilis (chef and owner) and his wife Katerina, will offer you an extraordinary experience. Totally must visit destination...

We loved it! The food is wonderful and the view from their terrace is breathtaking. The owners cook and serve you, and they are very nice people. They offer the vegetables from their garden: we tried and enjoyed very much the fried eggplants and a delicious Greek salad. Good cuisine: we tried the veal stew, the chicken and a homemade... More
