“great food”
Reviewed 10 October 2013

The restaurant is family run by Nicos and his wife and is in Pariskevi very close to the Atrium where we stay so I am slightly biased we have hired a jeep for the last 7 years and have sampled lots of tavernas . the Plantanias is up there with the best of them.

“Wonderful View!”
Reviewed 9 October 2013

Yes, you do need a car and "Yes", the view is stunning over the countryside to the sea but we were not overly excited by the food. My husband had a wasp in his omelette and although his plate of food was replaced there wasn't a 'sorry'. To be honest it put him off. Lets face it you only need to look up from whipping your eggs for a moment and a greedy wasp will be in!

“MOST Amazing Panorama over Skiathos Town.”
Reviewed 23 September 2013

You must have a car to get there but it is worth it. You will have the most wonderful views from up there. Must eat here at least once.

“Stunning views”
Reviewed 6 September 2013

First time visit to this restaurant but was not disappointed with the beautiful views you can see for miles over all of Skiathos. We had hired a car so just called in for a drink and a snack, the freshly squeezed orange juice is lush. When we return next year we will definitly return to Platanos for an evening meal. Lovely staff and very comfortable surroundings

“Lovely family run restaurant”
Reviewed 2 August 2013

We have eaten at the Platanos Restaurant every evening of our holiday for the last five years and have never had a bad meal. The food is home cooked and traditionally Greek with the family who own it growing some of the vegatables and freshly catching the fish. The family cannot do enough for you and we have tasted dishes not usually on the menu but which have been cooked for themselves. The two members of staff who serve at the tables Panos and Dimitri are very helpful and friendly in fact the family who run the restaurant and the staff who work there have become more like friends and of course the view is amazing I could and probably have over the years spent hours looking out over the view - however dont just go in for the view the food is excellent too. Cant wait to return again next year.
