The food was absolutely delicious - noble Greek food - and the service was very friendly and welcoming. The quality and presentation of the food was really exceptional! We will definitely come back to this cozy restaurant by the sea!

We visited here on our first night in Rethymnon, and was so pleased with the meal we ate here another two times. The steaks were good, as were the pork fillet and lamb chops, in fact all was good. The little ice cream to end...was a lovely touch and of course the raki shot with the waiter ! You may have to book as they are always busy, even out of season. Staff are lovely and remember you if you return.More

Visited 26/10 for my wife’s birthday. So glad we did. We were made to feel so welcome from the minute we walked in. Everything was beautifully cooked and served. The calamari was absolutely to die for, simply wonderful. We had the Greek sharing plate and...everything on it was delicious. The complimentary ouzo at the end, along with a round of Happy Birthday and a slice of cake made the whole evening one to remember. Would recommend in a heartbeat. Thanks!More

We luckily found Nostos on the first night of our week’s holiday and visited three times for dinner and once for lunch. It’s just a brilliant restaurant - whatever you eat is fabulous - the wine is excellent - and the staff are superb! What...other restaurant would be confident enough of the quality of their own food/service to give recommendations for 3 other restaurants in the harbour/old town? We visited all three and they were great too! A massive thank you to all the team for helping to make our stay in Rethymno a really memorable one! Peter & WendyMore

Visited on a day of thunderstorms and lighting but this not distract from the quality of this restaurant. We had the very large shared mixed grill, a real gut buster.

Friendly service and delicious food. Kids menu and they also offer to serve from the main menu in smaller portions for kids. We had the souvlaki (chick and pork) and the lamb stew. All delicious and home made. The decor is lovely. Would def recommend
