Looking for something more interesting to drink than Mythos and Heineken? This is the place. Good selections of beer from minor breweries from all over the world and a relaxing atmosphere. For local microbrew, try the beers from "Septem" brewery.

Went looking for this place on the basis of reviews and serendipity just next to resort where we were staying. Local boutique draft beers great tried lager dark beer and pale ale. All fine. Great atmosphere but despite reviews place is struggling against far less classier venues. Maria brings most wonderful bar snacks with each round so three beers and beer snacks before dinner slows you down a bit. Clean tidy great staff good prices but I am afraid it won't be there in current format on next visit.

Stumbled upon this place when wandering through platania.
Amazing selection of beer. Septem golden ale (made from honey) is a must try especially when accompanied by the sausage platter.
A must visit.

This bar is an absolute gem. The decor is minimalist cool, vibe is unpretentious. We love trying new beers and were so excited to find a place to sample local microbrews. Prices are very reasonable. Maria was our bartender and was amazing! She is incredibly knowledgable and told us all about what we were tasting. She also created little food pairings to go with each beer we tried (dark chocolate, dried fruit, tuna crostini). She was so fun, and is a really interesting woman (former pro cycler!). This place was a highlight of our trip, and the thought, love, and dedication that have gone into this business are evident. Highly recommend every visitor to Platanias stop by!

Small nice place with atmosphere. Beers of all kinds and soft drinks, superb service.
If staying in Platanias visit this coctail pub where you get a good beer, wine or drinks. If you are hungry you can have delicious tapas.
Personal and outstanding service! Our recomandations!
