Fodor's Expert Review Platanos
Set on the shady square where Hippocrates reputedly once taught, this island institution maintains high standards for its cooking and top-notch service. Occupying an early-20th-century Italian club, the surroundings of tiled rooms and candlelit balconies are elaborate. Try the spiced, grilled lamb chops or famous pork and crackling (ellasonitiko). Live music accompanies meals most evenings.
