Live Music Every Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday! 

Don't miss this little gem in the centre of Platanias, with a lovely outdoor dining area in a orange tree garden a few metres away from the traffic and mainstreet. Dimitris has had Abelopas Restaurant since 2003. Last year he moved the restaurant across the street, still easy to find for you who is repeatedly visiting Abelopas, but also easy to find for you who is visiting Platanias for the first time.

He offers traditional Greek and Cretan plates and of course he is loved for his charming Cretan hospitality!
Dimitirs welcomes you on every day, espesially the evenings when he offers LIVE music. 
Enjoy your evening in true Cretan Spirit!

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.
