“Just an average place for a dinner”
Reviewed 8 September 2013

We had one family dinner there this summer and we have also visited Kantapi several times during previous holidays. The surroundings are quite relaxed, a bit isolated from the street noise. The floor is just the stony ground, which is ok.

Food is average there and so are prices, too. One thing, which I dislike, is to employ scandinavian young waitresses. I prefer the Greek feeling which is spoiled by the unprofessional, young, non-Greekish waitresses.

“Disappointing food!”
Reviewed 7 September 2013

The most important thing about this restaurant (the food) was really bad. The appearance and service in the restaurant were brilliant but the food really let it down. I've have meals at my local Wetherspoons far better than at Kantapi. The mixed grill I ordered seemed to be any sort of left over meat that was in the kitchen. It included a beef burger and frankfurter sausage.

“Superb Taverna”
Reviewed 26 August 2013

Visited Kantapi Taverna twice during our recent stay and many times in the past too and we have never been disappointed. The setting is lovely with trees and vines overhead and it is hard to believe that you are actually eating on the main Platanias road. The menu is extensive, the food superb and the staff are fantastic. A little tip is.....if you love a wine with your meal try the house red or white as they are actually very very good. Try Kantapi it is a Superb Taverna.

“The best food ever”
Reviewed 12 August 2013

I would recommend this restaurant for several reasons. First, it is very friendly for kids. The service is quick and the souvlaki with souces best (garlic and pepper are the best ones).

“One of the nicer places in Platanias”
Reviewed 16 June 2013

Located directly at the main street you would expect this to be a noisy place. And you were plainly wrong. Sitting under lemon trees and wine you will hear just a fountain and soft greek music.

The food is not exactly classy but of good quality. We had swordfish and it was much better than what you would expect in such a touristy place. They waiters are all connected with headphones and microphones, which is a bit spooky at first, but they are really friendly and perfectly willing to fulfill any special wishes.

When we made our reservation the day before, they let us choose a table. Much to our surprise: when we arrived the table was decorated with rose leaves and flowers. Nice gesture, guys!
