“Brilliant location”
Reviewed 13 September 2013

This restaurant could not be any closer to the beach without actually being on it. We reserved a table that was on decking 1 step away from the beach with an excellent view on the sunset. Service was good and the food was brilliant. If I had more time I would have definitely returned.

“Good food and”
Reviewed 12 September 2013

Good food at reasonable price by the beach. We stayed in Platanias for a week and ate both lunch and dinner at this restaurant several days. The waiters were happy and helpful and made the experience great! :)

it was cheap and really good food, and right at the beach so you can see the romantic sunset when you're eating.

“Great dining, right next to the beach”
Reviewed 9 September 2013

This place was so good, we visited 4 times. The food is tasty and authentic, prices are very reasonable. The waiters are attentive and helpful. Situated right next to the beach, it is a great place to watch the sunset and listen to the waves with a bottle of wine or two. Highly recommended.

“Beautiful meals by the beach”
Reviewed 6 September 2013 via mobile

While staying on holidays at Platanias or Agia Marina, we have eaten many of our dinner meals at The Olive Tree restaurant, and we've never been dissapointed! Beautiful food to not expensive prices. We've been on holidays to Platanias / Agia Marina for three times, and we've tried many other restaurants, but we always come back to The Olive Tree Restaurant, and every time we've said: Yes. This IS the best!
