“Decent.”
Reviewed 11 September 2013

Nobody outside to "throw you in", which is good. The biggest number of dishes and " combinations" I've seen in Platanias. Bad chairs. And as many other restaurants in Platanias, they don't know the difference between medium & well-done!

“#1 if you appreciate well-cooked greek cuisines”
Reviewed 8 September 2013

I have been at this restaurant so many times! And not once have I been dissapointed!
First of all they have the best tzaziki in the area ;-)
The first time I was here I ordered a pasta cuisine. It was really really good. But at my secound visit I regretted so much that I did not order from the greek cuisines already at my first visit, 'cause wow the greek cuisines here are SO great!
I have tried almost all of them, and they are so good and so tasty!

Bonus info. They have this area for children a sort of play "yard" so you know where they are ;-)

Reviewed 13 August 2013

We visited this traditional restaurant in august 2013. We got great service, and great food! Tasteful, and it was plenty food! We ordered a greek salad to share, and had delicious lamb in oven, gyros and stifado! If you ever vistit Platanias, this restaurant is worth a visit!

“The Best Traditional Restaurant!”
Reviewed 17 June 2013

They have the most amazing food of all the restaurants, at least after my opinion and well I have sort of tried them all except the ones that are inspired by other countries. This restaurant is the one with the best traditional Greek food, it's absolutely amazing. I like pretty much all their food! Just don't go there expecting that the hamburger is like a normal hamburger or cheeseburger for that matter. They are still really good just different ;) It's definitely worth a visit if you're in Platanias! And the people that own it are extremely nice, it's a family owned restaurant which just really sets the tone for it. It's such a nice place!

“Good local dishes”
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.
