Wow. What a find! First of all, it’s hidden away from hustle and bustle of the main narrow streets of old town. Second of all, the food is of very high standard. We had carpaccio, lobster, musaka portions were of good size. Everyone liked their...meal.More

Arriving in beautiful Crete, we stopped on the way in Rethymno where we had dinner on Friday night at the restaurant Lemonokipos, one of the best in this city. The menu of 28.8 EURO with fish dishes, with a wine of your choice, we found...the most economical ... as for taste = divine❤More

A charming courtyard awaits you amongst a fusion of lemon trees and grape vines; all of which enhance the delightful dinner experience in Old Town, Rethymno, Crete. The Greek Salad and the eggplant were fresh and exciting and downed with two glasses of local white...wine!More

Excellent and unique take on Greek specialities - great food experience. However I have to drop to 3 stars as mid-way through the meal the service did a 180 on us. Our initial and seemingly lovely server never came back, and it was like we...didn’t exist. We asked for drinks, a dessert menu, anything to keep spending money and enjoying the evening, and no one seemed to reappear. It really Confused us and ended up to be an exhausting endeavor. We began to wonder if we had offended somehow. (We had better customer service at the billiards hall later that night amidst the 2020 England-Italy match. ) it’s a crap shoot with this place in my opinion. It needs a little better FOH management to accommodate the crowds of summer.More

We went to Lemonokipos after hearing several mentions of it! It was totally worth the hype! My husband and I tried many different things our first time there! All the food was so beautifully prepared and truly scrumptious! The waiter was so nice and kind....We actually went there a second time because the atmosphere was wonderful and the food was to die for. There are so many amazing restaurants in Crete but this was the only one we went back to again. It’s a must try!!!More

This Tuesday and Wednesday we had dinner at Lemonokipos for two days in a row and we must say that we had an amazing and extraordinary experience. We were amazed by the qualified staff, the amazing fresh, rich, balanced and well prepared food, the wines...as well as the authentic entourage mixed with modern style. Regarding the dished, we ordered several fish dishes of which you could taste that the fish just got caught from the sea. The carpaccio of sea bass was one of our starter favorites. I also got the opportunity to taste the sea bream, which I found truly amazing. But also the meat dishes were wonderfully prepared with a great balance in flavors. All the serving staff helped us with a wonderful hospitable attitude. The owner made us feel at home the minute we passed by the restaurant, and has a true passion for the restaurant business running through his veins. Whilst having dinner, we were mostly served by Antigoni, a real professional that knows her wines in depth and owns a great deal of wine paring knowledge. She was able to tell us everything about wines beyond their wine list, where her true passion for greek wines and wines from the island and islands close by were passed upon us. We tasted greece in several “coats” through different wines and spirits, always with great respect and passion for local and authentic products. Antigoni passed us a hand written note of Greek wine varieties which we promised to taste before going back home! I can recommend anyone that wants to have an exceptional dining experience to go to Lemonokipos in Rethymno city, old town. You will be blown away!More
