Visited the site early May before the heavy load of tourists arrived in Crete. In spite of low activity, the ordered dishes like crouton salad as starter an octopus as main dish, the raw material and the cooking we're excellent. Especially the marinated octopus was delight, and plenty! The price for two included a glas of local white wine and draught beer was quite OK. The waiter made us feel very welcome. Nice sea view.

We went there twice, once during lunch and second time for dinner. Great service, good food, children were taken into account, three servants were entertaining my son at one point. Restaurant is by the sea, just next to the sand, so it was a great experience at the sunset...

We had a selection of great food and a few beers at this friendly beach-side restaurant. We were staying just a few blocks down, but fancied a change and had seen good reviews for this place.

We were not disappointed. The tables were right on the beach (and I think they also offer sunbeds too, for those wishing to use them) and the food delivered to our high expectations.

The service was a little odd - an old guy in a weird tracksuit, jacket and trainers combo - but he was friendly enough, and it just added to the low-key charm of the place.

My boyfriend and I went for dinner here last night. Although the great TripAdvisor reviews, we were surprised & thankful how easy it was to get a table without prebooking! The food was fantastic! For starter we went for the Traditional Cretan Mezze which had a large variety of food to try - enough for two people. The waiter gave us a brief intro as to what each item was which was helpful. Our mains were lovely too. Great setting on the beach front.

Nice location on the outskirts of Platannias center. Quiet area completely by the beach.
Here, excellent staff by being anonymous present. This was perceived positively. Decent menu with many local dishes and at competitive prices. There was a short time from ordering to food was served. Beautiful fruit for dessert. We were sitting a long time and enjoy the place. Thank you.
