“Great place, good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 October 2013

Had dinner here with family of 4 plus grandparents, total 6 people. We had outdoor seating right next to kids playroom. Very quiet corner and convenient for our kids (1.5 and 4).

The restaurant was clean in general, especially toilets and playroom were very tidy. Staff was quick to take orders. We had very good stifados, I had lamb. Our younger kid had spaghetti -- the portion was so huge that in addition BOTH kids had their lunch next day from doggy bag.

Menus are available in many languages (including Finnish and Swedish) and credit cards were accepted.

The only reasons for not giving 5 stars was, that the food was "only" very good and not great. I hoped a little more charisma to my portion. Also staff was a little slow to handle payment.

However, the surprise dessert at the end of the dinner were exceptionally good.

Can recommend!

“Eating out”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 August 2013

Great location (set up high overlooking Platanias main road so a "window" seat (although all set outside due to the fabulous weather) meant there was plenty to watch as you enjoyed your meal. Great service, good wine, lovely food - portion sizes a little too generous for our palate - but nice touches with sparklers in ice cream for the children, and a complimentary tiny dessert for those of us too full or order a pudding!!! (only managed half of it but it was delicious)

I ordered calarmari which was beautifully cooked with a garlic sauce, and moussaka, which was wonderful, and served with delicious tzatsiki! My husband ordered smoked salmond with cream cheese, followed by a fabulous chicken dish.

Reasonably priced, great service and location - we would eat here again!

“Fantastic...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 August 2013

We stumbled across this restaurant by chance and like it so much we came back the next night. The food was excellent, the staff is friendly and welcoming, the prices affordable. The resteraunt itself its very clean, its close enough to see and feel the activities of platanias but at the same time, you are sitting above in a relaxed atmosphere.
