We wanted to visit a restaurant that had authentic, home cooked Greek food. This restaurant was definitely that! As anyone does now we looked on google and read some reviews. Finding Othonas to be highly recommended… and it did not disappoint. We walked past and...spoke to a friendly gentleman greeting customers. We decided to book with him for the following evening. On the Sunday evening we arrived and it was the same friendly face greeting us! He also remembered us! (Maybe my bright red hair and pale freckley skin made us memorable or he tends to remember guests - we weren’t sure!) We were given a complimentary taster of tomato soup whilst browsing the wine menu! No question was too difficult and every member of staff was happy to help! We ordered 2 starters and 2 mains (see photos) - the food was outstanding! I’ve had a lot of Greek/Turkish food and this was delicious. We were also given a complimentary dessert! We were not rushed off of the table and allowed to finish our wine! A generally pleasant experience and delicious food. I would definitely recommend and definitely return if I were to visit Rethymno Old Town again.More

Beautiful outdoor restaurant in the Old Town with splendid artwork. Complimentary tomato soup, strawberry cheesecake and raki. Tender beef stifado and excellent dishes to share, especially feta cheese. The staff are very friendly and polite. It is a holiday highlight and worthwhile.

Really enjoyed this restaurant so visited twice. Lovely Cretain food, excellent wine, nice location in the old town. Staff were very friendly and helpful, portions generous, and free rake and dessert offered at the end. All good and reasonably priced.

The atmosphere was welcoming and warm. Waiters were fun and extremely friendly and the service was fast. I had meatballs in tomato sauce and the serving size was optimal and the food itself was delicious. On top of everything I had a tasty slice of...cheesecake and a bottle of raki. Definitely recommend, even if the prices were a bit higher than elsewhere.More

Went to this restaurant in May 2022. My husband and I shared a meat meze for 2 people. The food was wonderful, there were about 8 different dishes, but they came out slowly so that you didn't feel overwhelmed. For the total price of 55...Euros a bottle of wine was included plus dessert and coffee. Our friends had the steak which they said was superb. The staff were lovely and welcoming. The toilets were spotless! I would definitely recommend a visit to this restaurant.More
