Platanos tavern has been operating since 1980 and proudly presents a variety of traditional dishes, cooked with fresh, raw materials so immerse yourself in the traditional Cretan cuisine! The meals are prepared from selected local Cretan products and cooked in olive oil of our production, as well. Our cook, Mrs Eva Kopasis, masters the Cretan cuisine as she has been cooking non-stop for over 25 years, leaving all guests in awe! The spectacular view of The White Mountains as well as the exceptional customer service, distinguishes “Platanos” from any other tavern in the area!
As mentioned above all the meats, vegetables, the wine, olive oil and the traditional tsikoudia (raki) are of our own production. Please also note that we bake our bread daily, so you will always taste freshly-baked bread with leaven of course! We make sure to prepare a variety of Cretan dishes each day, so our guests have the chance to taste unique Cretan flavours such as Sfakiano giahni, siglina, graviera, kohli boubouristi, staka, stamnagathi, local lamp and pork, boureki pie, mousaka and eggplant pie. You cannot leave “Platanos” without having tasted the delicious pies from Sfakia with honey on the top, an ideal way to finish your meal!
Last but not least, it should be mentioned that “Platanos” tavern is famous for its amazingly tasteful breakfast provided in the mornings. Dozens of tourists visit us from Loutro village on foot, just to enjoy their first meal of the day in our place!
