Abelopas Garden Restaurant


Live Music Every Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday! 

Don't miss this little gem near the center of Platanias with a lovely outdoor dining area in an orange tree garden a few meters from traffic and the main street. The owner Dimitris has had restaurant Abelopas since 2003. A few years ago, he moved the restaurant across the street, making it easy for both former and new customers to find the place.
Abelobas serves traditional Greek and Cretan dishes. Dimitris, on the other hand, is loved and well known for his warm Cretan hospitality! Several nights a week there is also LIVE music while eating.
Enjoy your evening in the true spirit of Crete!



 ABELOPAS Garden Restaurant


Our experience at Abelopas.

At first we were welcomed at the side of the road and after they guided us in the amazing aesthetic garden. All the tables was among trees and around plants. An amazing space that is very carefully designed.
The food. Where to start and where to finish. Every dish was delicious. Each dish was prepared at that time so all the ingredients are fresh and the food is hot and well cooked.
(Tip: Try the Ntakakia, thank me later)
The prices was more than satisfactory if you bare in mind that the quality of the food was top and it’s a not a tourist tavern with unjustifiably expensive prices. The prices are normal for both the tourists and the locals!

A real gem of a restaurant. Hidden garden at the back has the most wonderful ambiance to enjoy your dinner . The host and waiters were super . The food was great and well priced . Good variety of traditional food . Live music was perfect , not too loud and traditional. Definitely recommend dining there.
