About Us

Welcome to River Taverna Cafe!

Located just 8 Klm from the centre of Rethymno in the seaside resort of Platanias, River offers you a full day experience.

The restaurant can easily be accessed via the National Road or with local transport and has ample parking space and a children’s playground.

Whether you want to relax at our beautiful sandy beach and enjoy snacks and coffee or have a romantic sunset dinner, River can cater to all your needs.

We use locally sourced produce and fresh ingredients that are carefully selected so that we can provide you with delicious Cretan dishes.

Our fresh fish of the day is chosen every morning from local fishermen and is prepared over charcoal on our grill. Our meat dishes are also grilled over charcoal to give it a great and distinctive flavour.

Our team can also plan, organise and implement events that suite your needs taking care even of the smallest of details. We will be happy to organise your event according to your needs and requirements.
