This was the best meal we had in Crete by a long way. Highly recommend any of their Lamb dishes - the rack or shank in particular! The service was wonderful, very welcoming and helpful from start to finish.

If you are looking for high quality, authentic Cretan food, loo no further than Symposium. We had a fantastic experience and the food was to die for!

Love this place! So nice to sit and watch people stroll by as we enjoyed a lovely breakfast with homemade bread and croassaints, eggs, homemade marmelade, fresh juice and nice coffee. The owner is very nice and friendly. Would come again.

A top restaurant in Platanias. Very good food, but missed the talkative service that you often have in Platanias.

Hello! Our 16 years old son is very allergic to gluten, he will be sick from the smallest amount of this. Is it safe to eat here? If you have french fries - do you cook it in oil that has not been used for other purposes? Grateful for answers, thank you - best regards Grethe (Norway)
