We always go once in our week to this restaurant. The food is always great prepared in the kitchen on the second floor, you go by on the stairs going up to the dinning area. Stop and say hello. The views are great and the sunsets are well worth going up. Good crete meals and good value with a view.... More

Wonderful food, served by a friendly family for a fair price. This was our first dining experience in Crete and really sold us on Greek cuisine. We would go back again in a heartbeat.

The tavern is really family run: no outsiders working: dad as the waiter&boss, wife assistant waiter, daughter, assistant-to-the-assistant waiter, and some under school sons and nephew son in the kids room, to play with our under school kids :) And then, grandpa and grandma preparing the food. Food was good, pretty similar as in all the taverns in Platanias, service... More

The restaurant is situated at an incredible height where you can see the whole of Platanias as well as the mountains and the sea, breathtakingly beautiful.

We at both breakfast and dinner at the Sunset. They have a very wide assortment of dishes from traditional Greek to pasta, pizza and pretty much anything. There's something for everyone and it's all delicious. The views are amazing, especially during sunset hours. The service was warm and friendly. Nothing was too much trouble. Definitely worth a visit.

The service was outstanding with the help of small family members, whom were nothing but cute andadorable. The food was Greek. Tasteful, simple, fresh and delicious.
