Reviewed 5 September 2017 via mobile

The place is underneath huge platanos and every night we had dinner here (4 times!) the atmosphere was marvellous. We were surrounded by greek families and the waiters were very friendly.
Here we tried the best food ever tasted in Crete! The have all the traditional greek dishes (expecially meat), everything was delicious and the price was absolutely low dispate of the quality of the ingredients!
Every evening they have 'extra menu' options and the list is very various.

We loved this place and we raccomand you to go and taste real greek cuisine!!


Hello from your Italian friends from Milano, we hope we'll come back again soon!

Excellent food
Excellent atmosphere
Excellent prices

In my recent vacations in Chania I visited this place 5 times in 12 days. It must be one of the best taverns I have been.
Highly recommended for everyone that is in the area or do not mind to go a bit further.

It's been a few years since we have been to Crete....so, as on most of our visits, we wanted to return to Ta Platania where we have great memories including all the children in our group arrayed on the lower branches of a huge plane tree.
Sometimes return visits disappoint ....but not here. This atmospheric taverna seems to be the social heart of Spilia where locals gather in the evening, joined by visitors like ourselves.
The service was great, the food excellent and the value for money incredible. Most memorable were Beef Stifado and Pork with Olive Oil and Thyme. Staying at the lovely nearby Spilia Village Hotel, we visited Ta Platania every night for a drink or two at least.
When we return to this wonderful island, I can guarantee we will be back to this taverna which in our opinion would be hard to beat.

We loved the location of the tavern under the plane trees! All the dishes we ordered were very tasty and the service was also great! If you are searching for a local tavern in a small village away from the busy Chania center, this location is highly recommended! We will definitely return back on our next trip to Crete! Thank you guys!
