It is located on the southern slopes of the Troödos Mountains (Greek: Τρόοδος, Turkish: Trodos) and is one of the Krasochoria (Greek: Κρασοχώρια) (wine villages).

Platres is a very old village and is mentioned among the 119 villages of the Limassol district that existed during the Lusignan Era (1192-1489 AD) and the Venetian Era (1489-1571 AD). Platres or Pano Platres (Upper Plátres) (Greek: Πάνω Πλάτρες, Turkish: Yukarı Platres) is the principal hill resort of Cyprus.

Guest house for overnights to travellers among with a restaurant facility. Prices for the guest house starts from 50 and goes up to 86 euro per night breakfast included. Reservation is a must.
Admittedly, it is popular and you need to book in advance... no chance to find a place by calling a couple of hours before Sunday lunch and all that.... BUT it is no excuse for leaving it for so long since our last visit!! Stavros...MoreThanks for your time to review us and certainly thanks for your kind words. Its because of such comments that we have passion of what we do in order to grow better and get customer care and loyalty higher. Thanks again

“The Village Restaurant” in Platres belongs to Agi Jacovides, the owner of Semiramis Hotel. I was amazed with the delicious cuisine of Agi and he was telling me that he is cooking everything by himself only. Nobody else helps in the kitchen. He is very passionate with his cooking which he learned from his mother he said. One can find mostly traditional Cypriot cuisine here and from what I found out from the little chat I had with other people, everyone likes it here. Prices are affordable and portions quite big. From what I have seen the Restaurant is very popular both with Cypriots who come to Platres by coaches and the restaurant is full each day, but also it is popular with tourists who come to Platres and enjoy his Cypriot cuisine. Mousaka costs 10 euro, Kalamari (squid) 8.50, Steak port chop 7.50, Koupepia –stuffed vine leaves 9 euro. A beer will cost you 2.50 euro and a carafe of wine 75ml costs 7.50 euro. I found the prices reasonable, and because everything used here is freshly cut I can strongly recommend it. Agi will do his best to have his customers happy. The view from the restaurant is panoramic, but the inside decor is also great.
We were a party of 9 and just turned up in the afternoon without booking. Nothing was too much trouble for the wonderful restaurant manager who despite being on his own expecting a quiet afternoon, served us delicious authentic food. Lovely restaurant with great views and friendly atmosphere. Highly recommended.

We used to eat here regularly 30-years ago over a 3 year period. Recently revisited the Phini Tavern to have a Phini Special Steak which August the Owner is renowned for. The service was as fantastic as it ever was. The host has fantastic and friendly as ever. The food was brilliant making this the best restaurant in the Troodos Mountains, set in the quiet village. You must visit this restaurant if you are visiting Cyprus

We were staying with our very very good friends in Souni and drove up to Vouni to visit Takis. The welcome is very good and the Food - Meze - is great Quality and plenty of it. Not your Tourist style Meze, but a Proper Cypriot Meze. Great Value in a great Traditional Troodos Village Taverna.

Had dinner there and must admit impressed. We just wanted something quick and simple so went for their 20 euro for 2 menu which was kebab. extra salad,fried potatoes, humous and tahini with pitta bread. Large tasty portions and excellent service from very polite LOCAL girls.

A very welcome contrast to many-many restaurants at the seaside. A real authentic feel, beautiful surroundings and, above all, delicious food, especially the meat dishes - I think this was the first time were could sample pork, beef, lamb and chicken at the same time :). We were four adults and two children, and paid EUR 85 for a huge bowl of soup, two vegetable salads, five or six meat courses, and lots of homemade wine. And plenty was left to take away. Awesome!

Situated in the heart of the picturesque village of Omodos, the Katoi Restaurant offers unique culinary creations of traditional Cypriot cuisine. Take a 5-minute stroll from the graphic village plaza and the majestic Monastery of the Holy Cross.When facing the Church Main Entrance,walk left through the narrow alleys, pass the Linos Ancient Wine Press and you will find the Katoi Restaurant next door! Housed in one of the oldest buildings in Omodos, the restaurant has been traditionally restored to accommodate four different venues:The Medieval Hall,the Symposio Cellar,the Chef's Garden and the Aerinon Terrace. Here you can enjoy our special meze or select from our variety of dishes and big selection of local wines to make your day an enjoyable and memorable occasion!<br>Opening hours may sometimes vary.<br>The restaurant is normally closed on Mondays in the Summer and Mondays and Tuesdays in the Winter.<br>Reservations at any time are recommended.
One of the best meat meze in Cyprus. Very friendly staff, cozy space with stone fireplace. Price is more than good for one person only 20 euro for meze. It was more than enough for 3 adults and 2 children. Especially recommanded local bread. Looking forward to be back soon!

Great set up and the food was cooked well. It was busier than other restaurants in the village and a larger number of locals were eating there ( picture taken before people started coming..lots more tables to the left with some customers) so that's always a good sign. The service wasn't brilliant though and the waiter who served us couldn't answer some questions on how a type of food was cooked or the ingredients used so he had to go and ask a couple of times. He wasn't Cypriot and may be this has something to do with it, but nonetheless he should have known. Also he needed to smile a bit more. However, the other two waiters (serving other tables) were full of smiles!! Good experience overall.
