“Good local dishes”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 May 2013

This was our first visit to the West Crete restaurant. It is situated a little west of Platanias platia. We got a friendly reception and was shown to a table with a nice view of the people passing on the old road.

We ordered greek dishes and they were good, but for our liking lacing a little more spicies. The beer was cold and good while the rose wine was too dry for our liking. We got a nice cake and a raki for free when we asked for the bill.

This was a typical family restaurant and we could go back for a second visit.

“West Crete restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 October 2012

We have spent holidays (one, two or three weeks each time) in Platanias 17 times since 1997. This restaurant has been our favorite from the beginning. The atmosphere is relaxed so you can really enjoy your meal. The food is very good and the staff is the friendliest you can think off and they really make you feel welcome. We just love this restaurant!
