This was our favorite place during our 2 week stay in Platanias. The restaurant is situated on the beach, with a great view on the sunset. The food is of very high quality and plenty to choose from. We had the mixed grill which was very tasty and way too much for one person ( just as all the food... More

Who said that romantic dinner rarely pairs with delicious food? Kyano is situated right on the beach. The tables are distant from each other, mostly for couples and have candles in the middle.

The restaurant is right by the beach, easy access from the road. There are trees that provide a comfortable shade from the hot sun and there's a small play ground that'll keep the kids busy. Staff is helpful and friendly and the food is good. Awesome atmosphere.

The food was great but although we visited several times there, we couldn't try all ... many options for this kind of greek quality food, meat and best sea food. Helpfull... More
