Reccomended by a local we came to zisses for lunch.
They have a great exterior area with trees and large tables.
We ordered a mixed local cheese plate, dakos and a "fest salad" with beans and corn.
All plates were incredible, simple but with great fresh taste. The cheeses were amazing all topped off with hot grilled bread.
Paid 22€ with a local beer.
Good service and staff.
A must go in Crete

Just arrived in Platanias and the hotel receptionist recommended this place. Excellent choice. Our first Greek meal and we really enjoyed the food with generous portions. Not usually our thing but when the karaoke started, we thought it very entertaining. Thanks for making us so welcome.

ate here with a party of 8, excellent huge pizzas that the kids loved watching being made fresh for you, decent beers and wines and lovely mocktails for the kids, with a free complimentary drinks at the end too... thoroughly recommend

Very poor. Huge platefuls with no flavour. The only good thing you can say about it are its setting, which is pleasant. I was going to say that it was cheap but actually its fairly typical: we had lots of better meals for roughly the same amount.

Like a million and one other Greek restaurants both the service, and the food, were very good. The cost of our two course meal was about average, at 37 euros, but it has to said that our red wine was excellent. What's not to like!!

Traditonal Taverna with local food only.Homemade cheese and homemade bread as well as meat from our farm...Enjoy the best view and wonderfull sunsets of the island...
We traveled up hill from our apartment in the daytime for a look and cup of coffee, the view was stunning. We got talking to the owner (Asterios I think thats how she spells her name) and she was very knowledgeable about the area and foods. We said we would be back for dinner after we had been to the beach, to which she said be back before sunset because it is beautiful. So thats what we done back up at the restaurant around 7ish and ordered our food whilst watching the sun go down. My wife had the local lamb cooked in its own juice and I had the stifado with a dakos side, the food was great. The bread that came with the meal was home cooked too so fresh and tasty. After finishing the meal we were bought a cake and Raki which was on the house. Our whole experience was brilliant.
Thank you so much.

Gourmet creations from the Cretan & Mediterranean cuisine, hot and cold dishes, pastries and cakes. For culinary enthusiasts who seek to explore innovative gourmet local and Mediterranean healthy dishes in a stylish and relaxing ambience,“Piazza Di Porto”offers a culinary scene of upscale cuisine complemented by a superb sea view ambience from the restaurant’s veranda. SPECIAL NOTE: Gentlemen are kindly requested to wear long trousers in all restaurants in the evening.
Whilst staying at the Aquila Porto we visited this restaurant twice as it is the a la carte restaurant for the hotel. Wow! One of the best restaurants we have ever been too. The staff are so helpful and funny especially Vasil/Basil the manager. Could not fault anything, just perfect and staying at the hotel meant a discount on the bill. What's not to like.

Fabulous place to eat. Just 100 yards from home ( for the week ) Poppy the best host out of all the places to eat we visited. Lovely food at really good prices. Recommended by the lovely Jean at Villa Plus. Happy birthday for yesterday Poppy. You remembered everything about us and all of our requirements. Everybody that visits Villa Plus could make it an all inclusive holiday by making friends with Poppy on the very first day of their holiday.

We ate here last year & ate here twice this year! It's very cheap, food is tasty & served quickly. I ate Greek salad & my fiance had a plate gyros, which was huge! Loads of meat with pitta bread, salad, tzatziki & chips! The frappes (cold coffee) are nice & Mythos isn't dear here either (Greek beer). We also went back a takeaway gyros each one night which was tasty. Next time we go back to Platanes, we'll visit Sky Park again.

This was the first restaurant we went to during our stay in Rethmno...This was a great place: delicious food (greek plate, stifado, giouvetsi... ), cozy atmosphere and very good service!
So good that we went back twice beofre the end of our vacation: would definitely recommend it.
