We visited Platea twice during our stay in Platanias. Loved the service and food was great!! Staff are very nice and makes you feel very welcome. Highly recommend this place. Nice to have dinner away from the busy street. Hanne&Jeremy

We had a great time there. Staff is very welcoming and professional. Food was good, big portions. However, a tiny bit disappointed by the 24hr slowly cooked lamb which was not as soft as expected, but still tasty! Dessert was on the house.

We had a late lunch at Platea. We went there around 3pm and weren't even sure if they were open because the place was empty. We were greeted and seated and the souvlaki we ate was delicious! The only downside was that we waited pretty long before the waiter came and we were able to order dessert. The chocolate souffle... More

We had been two times in the Platea Restaurant for dinner. Highlight was the quality of the food. All was fresh, with good taste and very well presented on the plates. They also had very tasty and crunchy bread. The housewines - white and red - were very good. The service was very friendly, well trained and english language was... More

I strongly recommend their Platea salad and Chicken souvlaki. Bread in the beginning cost extra, but only 2 Euro. Fantastic service. Extra plus for the little icecream in the end.

Probably the best restaurant in Platanias. Only restaurant with a little different menu and a lot more flavor than the other restaurants. The meat is super tender but not so much flavor. The halloumi salad is excellent, with super exepensive ingredients. The Octopus starter is also good, for us they made some super excellent shrimps after we told him what... More
