RESTAURANT ZAFFERANO enjoys an excellent reputation for top quality food and service with an impressive and refreshingly different menu created and served with proficiency and flair!
It’s elevated, elegant terrace overlooks the Cretan coastline and boasts a beautiful, contemporary design offering both style and comfort. Open since the summer of 2004 we have been greeting and serving our customers with imaginative and creative dishes inspired by flavoursome, colourful, aromatic ingredients from both Crete and Italy.
Our guarantee is that every dish at Zafferano is prepared and cooked completely fresh to order, serving up a delicious selection of antipasti, fresh ‘al dente’ Italian pasta and authentic carnaroli risotto.
Our superbly succulent, fresh French limousine fillet, dry-aged ribeye and tomahawk steaks are served with our infamous, fabulous fresh sauces which are created using pure, premium products - that means absolutely no artificial additives or preservatives.
We also have a plentiful choice of local shellfish and seafood specialities together with supreme quality fillets of fresh salmon, yellowfin tuna and local sea bass.
There is also an excellent array of dishes for vegetarians and vegan with gluten-free options. Cooking with a conscience means we use lots of healthy, organic local vegetables, herbs and the incredible extra-virgin olive oil of Crete.
we are delighted to continue seducing sushi lovers with our sensational fresh sushi – uramaki, hossomaki, nigiri and sashimi which are all prepared completely fresh to order at our open-air sushi bar.
All this, together with the added indulgence of our delicate, gourmet desserts (from our very talented French pastry chef) served with a great choice of Italian coffee, liqueurs and French cognacs.
Our ultra interesting wine list features both excellent award-winning Greek and Cretan wines with an extensive choice of renowned International wines from around the world.
So we look forward to enhancing your stay here in Platanias, on this magnificent island called Crete and we extend an invitation for you to come to wine and dine in style at our restaurant Zafferano for what promises to be, an evening of delicious indulgence!
