If you would like to eat the gretan meatballs, this is the best place to have them. The restaurant is guite small typical gretan, but there were empty tables, while we visited there at lunchtime. Nice service and good value for money.

We have visited this place every vacation we have been in Platanias. The food is good and the personnel is very kind and friendly - and they have started to remember us... :-). This is a small restaurant and there is definitely nothing to complain.

The Grapevine is an excellent place to eat. And try the Greek cuisine, especially the Kleftiko. Also from all the restaurants I was in Platanias, this is the best place they make Cretan salad. The waiters are great.

We had seafood - my only regret is that most of it is frozen, which seems to be the standard. Nicely served, I liked it. Great service. I would go back there again.

Well, I had the goat and it was delicious, such a balanced taste and an inspired dish. When people say they want to discover Cretan local food and have gyros and fries, really, it sort of makes me wonder if the restaurant owners are not somewhat forced to present the same thing everywhere just because people ask for it.

On travels we like to discover traditional local food We've visited Grapevine many times before and always we get the best traditional dishes on the Platania strip there, very resonable priced. This time the goat was the winner for me and the mixed seafood for the girls.
