Great place to have lunch or an evening meal. Friendly staff all with character. The food is authentic and well cooked the portions are generous. The outside courtyard is a must....Xxxx

Yes, it can be all in one. Special and authentic. Rough (plain) and delicately adapted. Welcomed by the locals and enjoyed by tourists. And it's not just food. It's the atmosphere in general. Food, service, music, the garden, even those bit feisty cars ;-)

Went here with my family, 6 adults and 4 children and we sat in the gorgeous garden at the back. The menu is extensive and everything we had was excellent and reasonably priced. Staff were friendly and helpful with our kids. Great place to eat in centre on town.

This was a truly delicious moment in our weeks holiday in Crete. Rethymno is a lovely town, Crete's third largest. We were particularly lucky to be here when our Easter overlapped with orthodox Easter as the smell of beautifully cooked lamb spread through the town and there was a clear sense of celebration. However, it did mean several of the... More

The restaurant was a recommendation from the hotel. It is in the middle of the old town in Rethymon. It has a lovely back garden with lemon and orange trees. The menu has typical Greek food and we mostly stayed with the starters. Whatever we ordered it was just delicious. The staff helped us with finding the right things to... More

I chose this restaurant because of the vegetarian/vegan offer. However the price was bumped up by charges for bread/dip and other sundries, which elsewhere are offered as part of the meal. It was a cool night so I sat inside but he draught through the open doorseach side made it a really cold meal. The meze dips were fine but... More

Best thing about this restaurant is that it had a separate vegan option within a bundle menu, which you don't see in many places in England let alone here. Food was tasty and the atmosphere was great. Just off the Main Street you could eat here after a long day shopping. Service was good and the bread was stocked up... More

Quiet place just meters away from one of the bussiest streets in the old town. Friendly service with time for a quick chat and maybe, just maybe, a small raki. Not very stiff, and a lovely place to spend some hours out as this is not a fast-food restaurant.

Thank Trond A
