We had dinner at this restaurant following a recommendation from the owner of our hotel. Its location (just next to the Rethymnon Venetian fortress) and above the coastal road is indeed fantastic and one can enjoy superb views during sunset. Unfortunately, the dishes were indifferent, although of good quality. The service was friendly and efficient. Fruits and raki with honey... More

We stopped here for lunch after a tour of the fortress. Although we only had a light meal the quality of the food was very good, and my smoked salmon bruschetta comprised 4 slices of bread all thickly covered in sliced smoked salmon - tremendous value for under 7 euros. We needed to eat quickly to catch the open top... More

This place looks straight across the bay in one direction, and at the fortezza in the other direction- so you'll always get a good view! Went for late afternoon/early evening drinks several times. Reasonable prices (actually very reasonable when you consider the location), a good selection, and good service. Haven't eaten here but have heard good things.

We've been here with the kids. The location is magnificent. Up on the hill, next to the fortress, having a beautiful view over the sea and the town. We had fresh fish and pasta with shrimp. It was very good. They brought it quite quickly and they also serviced the fish. They were very polite and helpful. In the end... More
