Plateia Taverna, Mirthios

    Plateia Taverna is the oldest in Mirthios, on the South coast of Crete. It offers some of the best food of the island along with a breath-taking view over the ocean to go with it. The famous home-cooked food in Plateia Taverna is served up in generous portions by an efficient and friendly team headed by the owner Frederikos Kalogerakis. If you can’t decide what you want to eat — a common problem in this delicious tavern — it’s possible to make your own finger food or meze platter from a selection on the menu!
