We had an enjoyable meal at Platia. Extensive menu. Tasty food, although a couple of the mains were not as warm as we would have preferred. Pita bread and dips and Halloumi cheese were stand outs. Service was fine.

Been in many Greek restaurants and this is really below average with poor service, few table used and the waiter took ages to take the order and bring the food... Price is in budget side so this was good news but I will not return there

We eat at Platia often and the food is fantastic, their fish platters are exquisite, their steaks are done to perfection. The owner is very friendly and an absolute gem, she makes you feel right at home even stops to chat with you. I would recommend Platia if you are celebrating something. Very lively atmosphere.

We enjoyed a birthday lunch at Patia recently. The food was good and the staff invited people whose birthdays were celebrated, to join in to a dance. Very pleasant atmosphere. The restaurant had a recent interior makeover - now industrial and earthy. I miss the white and blue theme, typical of Greece....
