The food was amazing, and the staff was very friendly. I would recommend eating there while you're in Platanias!

Very good food and service. Easily the best place we had dinner during one week in Platanias. Highly recommended to book a table!

Excellent and friendly service, delicious food and atmosphere is very cosy and elegant at the same time. If you want to eat well and feel like the best customer in the world, you go to Symposium. I highly recommend.

Staff nice , food was good but not the best we had. Service was a bit slow. Found restaurants in general in area expensive and there was very little on the plate for the money in this one .

Good, but a bit slow service. Very good allergymarking on the menu, so it was easy to order glutenfree meals. Had the lamb skank and it was wonderful. Will absolutely go again this vacation.

But service was a little bit slow. They also serve drinks and bread on the house but that slowed down the dinner a lot. Best food on the whole trip. This is not a cheap restaurant!

Been there so many times through the years. The food is always absolute fantastic and the Staff very professional. A restaurant of international standard. Can't recommend this place enough and it's always on my priority list when I'm in Crete.
