Description: Astrea starting operating in 2000 introducing the Cretan, the Greek and the Mediterranean cuisine to its customers. From the moments you enter the restaurant, you will feel a member of Fandridakis family. The owner Mr. George is at the door to welcome you. Everything here at Astrea is well taken care to the last detail. The decoration, the food and the service. But, what makes Astrea distinguish is the magnificent view, which enchants every visitor. The restaurant organizes traditional Cretan nights three times a week.

We got the place recommended from the guides and what a view. We came just when the sun set and had a table with a view over Plantanias.

We had Lamb and Stifano which was both good and very tender. The kids had pizza and pasta.

For desserts the cheese cake, which was good but not great.

The waiters where high on energy and gave complementary ouzo for us and icecream for the kids. If you like a quite dinner you might find this too much, but we enjoyed it.

There is also a nice playroom for the kids.

I have no idea why this isn’t 1st in best restaurants in Platanias!! Tried the rest above this in the ratings and think whoever wrote those reviews hadn’t visited here!! Simply the best food, best service, best atmosphere in the region!!
I own a restaurant in the uk and I recognise quality - and this is five !!
Do not miss this restaurant / you will regret it if you do!!

What an amazing place this is! The views from the terrace are breathtaking. Make sure you book in advance to ensure a table on the front of the terrace to maximise your experience and get there before sunset. . . It's beautiful.
Fabulous food, lovely staff. You will not be disappointed.

This is the place if you wish to enjoy excellent food, service and view. You may need to pay a little more than in another restaurant but it is all worth it.
