We stayed in Greece for a week. During our stay we went to The Olive tree at least 5-6 times. Loved all food, everything was really fresh, service was really good, prices very affordable and obviously the best views in Chania!

A view that can't be beaten coupled with reasonably priced local dishes make this restaurant a treat. It might be too pedestrian for those looking for a unique experience but worth every euro.

Excellent food, friendly service and beautiful ocean view. Nice place for families, the kids could play on the beach while waiting for the food. Recommend the olive tree pasta and the olive tree salat.

Went here with my boyfriend July 4th. Took ages to get drinks, our food and even the check. We had three different waiters and felt like a drop in the ocean seating there. Although they have an amazing view it doesn't make a difference when...More

I ordered the meatballs, a great taste of Greece with greek yogurt. We had a lovely time in the sunset, the staff were excellent and almost every table were taken. I recommend this restaurant if you are in Platanias.

Large beach front restaurant. Very busy so had to wait for a table but was sorted quickly. Lots of very busy staff but still had time to assist with menu queries and checking food was all ok. Food was excellent and nicely presented.

Fantastic located restaurant right on the beach. Very romantic atmosphere in the evening with the sunset. Very friendly staff. The stifado is amazing if you eat meat. The mixed vegetarian plate is also very yummi.
