Disappointed is the word. Both my colleague and I had hoped to find some authentic food, but no such luck. The courgette balls were almost fried to oblivion, the horiatiki salad was dripping with oil. Service very slow and not very welcoming. Not worthy of a second visit.

We ate two times in this restaurant. For me, the food was the most horrible food I had ever eaten in my life. On first place - there is no words to describe the amount of oil in the food. My potatoes were literally swimming in one litre of oil. I used 10 napkins to wipe the oil from the... More

proved to be a popular place and had a real buzz about it. Food is fine, doesn't seem to cause a problem if there are 10 of you or 2 of you the eaiters cope in a friendly way. Just simply a nice place to go to

Started off well, food was of good quality. Let down by poor service which was slow. Coffee never arrived and we asked three times for the bill.

We came here every night of our 8-night stay in Kythira (we were staying nearby). The staff was so friendly to our toddler son, and we felt very welcome here. The food was delicious - classic Greek taverna fare, set outside in the shade of a huge plane tree. A beautiful setting and a great restaurant.

During summer tables are outside, under a couple of big plane trees (hence the name: platanos is the Greek for plane trees) and this is very fine. Food is good, with some dishes that you won't find in all tavernas (for instance we tried stuffed cod with okras; good even if very greasy). Warm service. Average - i.e. cheap -... More

The local sausage with leek is a revelation. Not to be missed. Stuffed courgette flowers also dandy. Worth the trip.
