Symposium came recommended from owner of one of platanias other great restaurant. So of course we had to try it. The service was really nice and with a high standard, the waiter had some great recommendations and we were surprised when the T-bone was flambered in front of us, which draw attention of the neighbouring tables... very nice surprise :D
We enjoyed this visit very much, and although we ate at several good places this was the best meal of our trip to crete.

We had booked the table the day before, taking every night was full house. We got a nice table outside. However, the waiting time before there came a servant and took the order for quite some time ... the food was really delicious. We were, respectively, salmon and a very delicious chicken. The resturant served a lovely chocolate mousse at the end instead of ouzo. Delicious!

My mum and I went to this restaurant on our visit from Chania to Platanias for the day. The service was excellent, the sharing salad we had for lunch was delicious and and was served with warm bread rolls with chilli garlic butter. The meal was so tasty we both wanted to recreate it at home. After days of eating heavy Greek food it was nice to have salad with tastes of pear, pomegranate, Parmesan and lots of other fresh ingredients too. They also offer a discount on the menu during the day so that was a nice touch. I would definitely recommend this place!

This is an excellent family restaurant, modern in style but still with the distinct Cretan flavours, Excellent service, with waiters efficient, friendly and professional. Whilst the owner is Danish, nevertheless the food is Greek but with a hint of other European countries on the menu to choose from. We did not have one bad meal out of the five we had there, each one different than the last. We noticed that children were especially well catered for and it was further noted that locals dined there to. Would advise to reserve or eat slightly earlier than 7.00pm or you will have to queue.

Dining at Symposium was a memorable experience for all the right reasons. The food was tasty and well presented whether it was a traditional Greek dish or dishes with a Nordic influence.
Absolutely worth a visit.
