Piato Restaurant in Lassithi

Simplicity and beauty are perhaps the only two words needed in order for one to describe the Piato (means “plate” in Greek) experience. The restaurant is located right on Koundourou coast (or Amoudi Beach) in Agios Nikolaos. It offers an exquisite view of the Bay of Merambelos, along with an exquisite view of how Cretan Cuisine can be transformed into a modern, unexpected experience.    

Apart from the quality and creativity of its cuisine, Piato Restaurant also offers amazing cocktails, perfect before you meal. But, perhaps the most noteworthy characteristic of all is the open heart of all who are working there. In Piato you will come to understand why Cretan hospitality is so famous. Piato offers both fish and meat. If you are a fish lover, try the grilled prawns and the swordfish. If you prefer meat definitely try the lamp. Last but not least, the location of the restaurant along with the swimming pool and the lighting, create a romantic atmosphere that will make want to spent all your nights there. (Why not?) After you lunch or dinner, you can also visit the Byzantine Church of Saint Nicolas, the protector of sailors (the whole city is named after him). Now, that’s a beautifully simple day.
