We stopped here as our hotel was right next door and the gentleman had said hello to us every day without ever hassling us. We stopped for lunch when there was a bit of rain about and had pizza for 2 for 5 euros and...a couple of drinks. The pizza was fresh and tasty and service very good.More

Pizza was pretty good, although we both felt a bit more tomato sauce would have been a welcome improvement. Menu stated €6 for a vodka - was charged €8. Bill came to €26, paid with €50... given €23.5 change....

Whilst being delightfully lost in the characterful back streets of Rethymnon we stumbled across this little place and, fancying a drink, decided to stop. Lovely staff in a little family restaurant. Stayed for three beers and a coffee and ended up with olives, dakos, cheeses,...raki and cake all thrown in. Liked it so much that we searched it out the next day and were greeted like old friends. This is the way the continental cafe culture should be. Ignore the reviews from the miserable Dutch below - they shouldn't be surprised that a place this small that's essentially a cafe-cum-pizzaria has to use frozen calamari!More

We were heading to another Italian restaurant when we came across this one. Decided to stay and didn't regret it. Enjoyed our meal and a nice chat to the friendly waitress and felt like we were supporting a local family restaurant.

The location is really nice, beside the church in a quiet street. Because we did not want a heavy lunch we ordered diffent kind of mezes. To bad they were all deep fried, I guess frozen? We had to guess wish one of the different...kinds we were eating. They all tasted the same accept the zuccini. Make them authentic, in combination with your location you could own a great restaurant!More
