“Again and again a good choice”
Reviewed 18 June 2014 via mobile

Over years we stay in the sourrounding of Platanias and OliveTree is one of our favourite restaurants.

Situated directly on the ocean it is a very nice place for dinner and lunch. The staff is excellent.

The owners are two brothers one is running this restaurant the other one the Botanical Park nearby.

You find a very good meal selection with acceptable prices in very nice quality.

Greatings to Kostas in the mountains in the Botanical Park

“Great food on the beach”
Reviewed 2 June 2014


We visited the restaurant in May 2014.
The location is very romantic right on the beach. The staffed was very polite and as my girlfriend has gluten allergies we asked if they could recommend any specific dishes. The kitchen made up a special dish meeting her needs.

All in all a really great restaurant which sticks out a bit from all the others on the coast of Platanias. Definitely a visit worth.
