    Fish was well prepared though a bit pricey. Local table wine was very good and affordable. Mostly caters for Scandinavian tourists, as most places in Platanias.

    The dish with shrimps and local cheese was very tasty and pasta was good. Lamb in the oven was among the best we had in Crete and tzatziki goes well with it!
    The staff was nice and not too pushy unlike other restaurants in the area.
    We liked it so much that we were there on three occasions during 8 days. Best restaurant playground in Platanias, Our child wouldn’t leave the place. Good prices. Try the local music night, staff are good dancers too!

    Price was reasonable for the standards of Platanias.
    We will definitely return!
