Apart from our own restaurant, we also recommend the following restaurants:


By many considered to be the best restaurant on the Chania coast. Italian restaurant with splendid starters, pasta, pizza and meat. Save some space for their ”panna cotta”. You won’t be disappointed. Table booking is recommended.


Stylish, elegant Italian restaurant in Platanias (under the same ownership as restaurant Kariatis) which offers the same imaginative and refreshingly different menu inspired by flavoursome, colourful, aromatic ingredients from both Crete and Italy, also renowned for their fabulous gourmet desserts and an extensive selection of award-winning Greek and International wines many of which are available by glass.


Well known among the locals, with Greek and international food in cozy surroundings. Good meat and “meze” (the Greek answer to tapas).


Lies by the square in Platanias, and has a nice upper floor. Table booking is recommended. Good and varied menu, with a little of everything. The food is of high quality and the restaurant is very popular. Why not try their ”saganaki”, a Greek specialty?


Restaurant in the old part of Platanias, specializing in local dishes from western Crete. The restaurant is small and intimate, and takes care to give the guests a nice experience.
