We have eaten here before and this return visit is even better than at first. Great food, menu and welcome. Restaurant has also been upgraded with additional seating inside and outside. Very popular with locals and visitors alike. Best on Rhodes in a magical setting on the main square with water springs and greenery.

Very nice place in a small village, delicious homemade food and really friendly welcome! The family takes care of the kitchen and you can just enjoy and relax. We have been there many times for dinner but also sometimes at lunchtime for a greek salad!

If you are going for the real greek thing, the real tastes, the most authentic experience, then you are at the right place! "Platanos" is one of the best family-run tavernas with the best prices I have ever experienced! With a unique atmosphere and a traditional scenery under the plane tree (platanos in greek) in one of the most beautiful... More

It's a nice place for lunch, they don't serve half of what they have on the menu. The food was good and fresh.

A beautiful Taverna in an authentic inland village which you have to go out of your way to find. Luckily we visited with an English friend who lives on the island and we were not disappointed. Fantastic and delicious real Greek food cooked for you to order, not for the masses coming off the beach. Will definitely return. Amazing prices... More

The food was really good, for starter we would recommend the meat balls and the fried zucchini. For main we would recommend the lemon pork, the chicken souvlaki and also the eggplant.

We are here the first time guided by the very good Trip Advisor reviews and the fact that the taverna is a five minute drive to our hotel. We come from Spain so we are very used to fresh fish and vegetables. This place exceeded our expectations, so we kept coming back for lunch or dinner. The calamari was possibly... More

What can I say about this place, We felt like we were at our own big fat greek familys home, with real tasting greek food and not the commercialised greek food in all the tourist areas. My husband and I went many times throughout our stay in Rhodes and got to know Mihali and his beautiful family and this really... More

We were driving around the south west coast of rhodes exploring beaches, and decided to drive inland to Lachania to eat at this taverna as we were peckish. The taverna was a bit out of the way but they didn't disappoint! The prices were modest, and really felt like I was eating homemade
