“Lovely Cypriot Mountain Reataurant”
Reviewed 3 January 2014 via mobile

We were recommended Johns by a Platres resident. Good food, lovely homely atmosphere, mountain setting and a great hostess. What's not to like? We'll be back.

“Excellent authentic Greek restaurant”
Reviewed 28 October 2012

Albeit the name, John's Restaurant is a traditional Greek cuisine owned and operated by a local family. We have been there for lunch on a busy Sunday. The large outdoors was packed with large local families. The indoors was empty waiting for winter. We ordered green salad, Moussaka, Lamb Kleftiko, grilled chicken (for the kids). The chicken was good, the Kleftiko was superb and the Moussaka was genius. The atmosphere was cheerful as it was all filled with local families.
We came at the pick of lunchtime so the service was slightly slow. There were only three serving the whole lot. It seemed to be the owner, his wife maybe and a not so young grandpa (which was running around with the speed and energy of a 16 year old). However they bestowed such a friendly and homely atmosphere which compensated for the speed.
Spying on other tables I saw many dishes which made me wish I had more stomachs.
Excellent authentic Greek restaurant. Will surely come again (for the Moussaka if nothing else ;-)
