We walked past this restaurant and were enticed in by a lady standing at the front of the restaurant beconning in visitors. foolishly we decided to try. Service slow and lacking in attention. We ordered from the menu husband ordered kleftico which should have fallen off the bone instead of being chased around the plate I ordered a very dry and stringy chicken souvlaki. Very disappointing, when we complained to the manager and requested that my husbands meal be removed from the bill his response was ‘you wouldn’t do this in your own country’ nice eh. Instead of apologising and offering a ‘drink’ as an apology he was just rude

Nice and relaxed family restaurant. Vegeterian pasta with avokado, tomato and feta cheese was very good.

Just come back from Platanias. Metaxia’s is the best family restaurants in Platanias. Having been there many times and now new list! Recommend to all who will have good greek/Cretan food. Always so warm welcome, like coming home. Hope all the best for this season!

Got calamari, swordfish and gordon bleu.
Swordfish and gordon bleu was way overcooked and had no taste. Apart from that the two dishes was completely the same apart from the fish and gordon bleu. Came with the same rice, potatoes and some mixed vegetables that also came from frozen bags. Calamari also frozen.

The house wine was good but served way to cold..

With a few upgrades the restaurant can become pretty good. But we are still pretty far from there.

Don't come for the food.

Went here with my family for a dinner.

The staff are friendly but the food is nothing special.

Got gyros plate with chicken and one with pork. The meat was dry.

My girlfriend got stidado with rice and was tasteless.

The bottled mythos and Alfa was good as usual
