What a fantastic find this place was! ... We were staying in a villa on the outskirts of Rethymnon when we stumbled across "Eyes" by accident whilst driving through Platanias. The sign outside caught my eye and i slammed on my brakes as i couldn't believe what i was seeing, somewhere offering BRITISH FOOD! We were on the island for 2 weeks, we actually got married in Rethymnon just 3 days into our stay and the remaining 11 days were for pure relaxation and family time. We had tried alot of food joints down in the old town and were growing sick of the usual food that was available to us and we were craving a little something from back home. That was why i was so shocked when i saw the sign outside Eyes ... "Full English Breakfast" ... "Traditional Curries" ... "Sunday Roasts" ... just what the doctor ordered!!
I pulled over and booked us in that evening for a curry and what an absolute delight that was, freshly cooked by Aiden and the taste was absolutely superb!
We stayed to witness the "Soul Man" and were impressed with his vocals and the way he brought people into the bar, on his first song we were alone with just 1 other couple, by the 3rd or 4th song the bar was over half full and then by mid interval the bar was heaving, great job.
For anyone looking for a quaint, pleasant place to drink and to taste some of the food we miss from back home then this is the place to visit whilst in the Rethymno/Plantanes area.
We also went back the following day for the Full English and were equally impressed!

This is a great bar with life music. Unfortunately there aren't very many live music venues in Platanias, so this bar is well worth a visit. The staff are friendly and the atmosphere is great. Well worth popping in.

We made "Eyes" our local during our recent visit to Crete.
Warm welcome, great entertainment ( Bem the Soulman and Lupo the excellent rock guitarist!)
Thanks for making our evenings so enjoyable.
