“Excellent food and a very nice place”
Reviewed 28 August 2014 via mobile

We read about Piato before our first meal in Agia Apostoli. Based on the feedback from other guests we decided to go there. Were we disappointed, NO. Great service from arriving until leaving. The food was outstanding. Almost the same philosopy as Arne Brimi, let people tast the origin of the food, no junk and no cheating. Absolutely worth a try if you are nearby Chania.

“Wonderful restaurant - Janice & Gary, Blackpool”
Reviewed 24 August 2014

We stayed at the Kalliston Hotel but had lunch at the Piato every day. What a lovely welcome we received on our first visit. Nothing was too much trouble. We enjoyed a variety of meals and each was just as delicious as the last!. The owners were so, so friendly. Enjoyed the complimentary grapes at the end of each meal, so refreshing! The only thing we didn't do was jump into the pool but with such a hearty meal inside us we thought otherwise! We would certainly recommend this restaurant to anyone.

“Home made Greek cuisine at its best”
Reviewed 13 August 2014

The food here was so delicious we ate here 4 times! Home cooked delights mean it is full of flavour and character. We ate the squid- fresh and fried tenderly, grilled cheese - delicious and soft but chewing bursting with creamy flavour, stuffed vine leaves - by far the best we found during our week, the same rice filing is used in the stuffed peppers which were equally delicious and cooked to perfection. The mousakka is full of flavour and the Greek salad is full of scrumptious fresh vegetables. Everything was made with so much thought and perfection and we were never let down on quality.
Their service was also fantastic, extremely attentive- less so once you received your meal which is perfect because that's when you want top be left to enjoy the food and relax. The waiters are happy to give advice on food and drink too.
A little out the way if not staying in the area, but well worth it for a real Greek food experience which is out of the main touristy hustle and bustle!
