Mylos Restaurant




SINCE 1960

“O Mylos tou Kerata” is one of the oldest restaurants of Crete. It is located in Platanias Chanion at a distance of 11km from the city of Chania, on the main road headed to Kisamos.
It first opened its doors back in 1960 when the owner of that time Dimitris Kavros converted the area around the water mill and the old inn to a taverna called “Keratas” (which means cuckold or someone with horns).

"Mylos Restaurant" is one of the oldest
and most loved restaurants of Crete

It is built around on a Venetian 14th century water mill with lots of history and decorated in the most spectacular way.
