It was a fantastic view to see the sun go down, there was not so much people so we got a good table. The service could be better, we had the feeling that the waiters was not obs on the customers. The toilets was not so good.

Overlooking Platanias and the Mediterranean Sea, Platanias Palace is situated uphill, off the main road.

Three years ago last time and now again. The view and atmosphere were still good and the food very good. The staff was very friendly too. The prices are reasonable but a little bit higher than in Agia Marina restaurants but the view is worth of that. Choose greek food, you'll not be disappointed.

We were 4 persons (3 adults) and had starters with Greek salad, tzaziky, garlic bread and fried cheese. Very nice and tasty. Continued with 4 traditional Greek main courses -... More
