Went her for lunch but was not a good experience. We ordered club chicken sandwiches. Has to be the worst club sandwich I have ever had, burnt toast, too much mayo and barely any chicken. Not cheap either. Avoid

The food is pretty much Greek standard; good quality meat dishes, fresh salads and tasty pittas, but the real attraction here is the location, right on the beach, and the service, which was very efficient and friendly. Shame the toilets weren't up to scratch though.

Our hotel was next to this lovely restaurant last year and we visited this restaurant very often then. Now we came back in another hotel and had to come back to this lovely place because of the good service and great food. Gyros portion is good. We love it!

We visit the place two times just because of the gyros. The bread and tzatziki was the best I ever had😊 stay away from the grass, a lot of ants and it could get annoying 😕

Amazing location and cosy atmosphere right next to beach, wide food and wine selection with descent prices, superb service ... tried sea food as well as meat.. Can't believe how it's possible to manage to serve successfully so different dishes.. Well done Kyano

Kyano is all of those rolled into one, with beautiful beach setting and very personable staff. We have gone every day so far and still have 3 more days to while away the hours. Cannot fault... More

We've holidayed in Platanias four times in the past couple of years & tried a number of restaurants in the resort. Kyano is by far our favourite & we eat there most nights now. The food is excellent as are the staff. We have asked a few times for slight variations from the menu & if it's possible, they will... More

Walking at the beach we longed for a refreshment and the Kyano looked so inviting, so we stopped for a glass of white wine and freshly squeezed orange juice and though it was lunch time we were warmly greeted. That was our first visit there, but not the last, because people looked happy there and of course we went back... More
