What a wonderful place to reach after our 3 km walk through the cultivated valley up from Platanias Beach. This was far more than we expected in an area away from the crowd, - warm, thirsty and hungry we where met by a charming waitress, who we later should know was the daughter of the house. We choosed small local dishes, and some garlic breads - all so delightful and tasty and made with care and understanding of how to prepare good quality of food. We enjoyed sitting outside, looking down at the small river and watching butterflies and wild birds, and most of all listening to the intense song of the cicadas. And after eating, relax in the hammocks between the trees. There are several tracks and quiet roads to follow if you like to walk, run or bike - when life by the pool is getting too quiet and boring. During our one week stay we visit this taverna twice, and will love to come back. If you don't like walking they offer free transport both ways (after 17.00).

A beautiful setting, under plane trees on the bank of a river which runs all year. Clean toilets, classy menu, attractive tableware.

But the food.... We had a selection of starters and salads. Nothing was freshly prepared. I'm sure all the ingredients were sliced, grated, or chopped up early that day and just thrown together when needed. The service was slow. The prices a bit too high for such indifference.

A real disappointment. We won't be back.

Didn’t really want much so the English lady running the taverna was kind enough to arrange some scrambled eggs and omelettes with a salad. Simple, delicious and such a beautiful location by the stream and under the trees. A bit off the beaten track but worth the toad trip.

Some minutes with car or bicycle (or by foot) south of Platanias you find an oasis in the middle of nowhere. It is well worth a detour and to sit down and enjoy the coffe, beer or food. It is exellent.
