In our 1-day visit to Rethymno, we chose to eat there as its was also suggested from the hotel where we stayed. Not only was a good choice, but it has been from the best lunch we had during our vacation.

Great ambiance, and then the food and beverage was great! Overlooking the fortenza on the bay, this place is highly recommended for romance and/or foodie outings.

We strive for what we love in a world that has forgotten the value of food in our lives. A plate of food, eaten in a restaurant or at home, the taste and the quality depends on the raw materials we use. With this as our principle and also that are forthright in any form of mass production of the raw materials, we have come and we have partnerships only with small local producers, who have the same philosophy as us. Our cuisine consists of raw materials without pesticides and fertilizers and from animals grown and fed in nature, as normally required in warehouses and not eating GM foods.
