Armos is a hidden gem. The food was so delicious, the portions plentiful, the prices very reasonable and the service so friendly. The atmosphere was beyond compare, overlooking Rethymnos and watching the sun set was stunning. We had the most wonderful evening and went back...a second time in the one week we were there. I totally recommend this place for families, couples, friends and business associates. You will have an amazing dinner with beautiful atmosphere.More

My family loved Armos so much that we went back a second time for a late night final dinner before flying home. The restaurant is about a 10 minute uphill walk from the road, and once you arrive - WOW. The space and view are...just beautiful. The restaurant is run by a couple who are honestly the most welcoming people you could meet. They make you feel like you’re dining in their home (and the other staff is great too!!). The food is grown locally in their garden, which is at the restaurant. Everything is incredibly delicious, fresh, and authentic. And also extremely affordable. At the end of the evening, the owners gifted us eggs, grapes, figs, and tomatoes right from their garden to take home with us. They insisted! I will tell everyone about this hidden mountain gem.More

Good authentic Greek restaurant a short walk alongside goat and sheeps from the village. Just follow the signs from there. The staff is incredibly nice and wholesome and definitely adds to the experience. The view is amazing over the area and the sunsets are amazing....The food is authentic and listed on a hand written note. Everything we had was good and delicious, while prices are very fair. They have their own little vegetable garden and animals nearby which only adds to the experience.More

Undoubtedly blessed with terrific location. But when on first night after long day arriving late-ish to be told 4 of a limited choice menu not available - lamb, chicken souvlaki, sausages and one other. It truly disappoints. It’s as if they are trying to shift...what hasn’t sold. And trying to force choices on customers really isn’t wise. Come early, don’t try late.More

Excellent restaurant with own farm producing most of what you can find from your plate. Service is most polite and friendly. Food is suberb! We had many starters shared as mezes. MIn courses were lamb and grilled chicken. All was delicious. Price-cost quality is good....I can recommend this restaurant!More

Make sure you put yourself out a little for the extra 300mtr walk from the village as this place is so special, Violetta & Niko have done an amazing job building this unique Taverna which is a perfect place to enjoy a late afternoon walk...and sunset. Small menu but the food is delicious and will make sure we call back on our next visit. Violetta also brought a fantastic smile and sense of calm to our 7 month old grandson Lucas 🥰More

Violetta and her husband's beautiful restaurant high in the Cretan hills overlooking the Aegean is amazing! She prepared a sumptuous dinner for our family of seven served up with such a warm welcome service. One of our favorite restaurants in our one month stay in...Crete.

We tried Armos based on Tripadvisor reviews and it was definitely worth the visit! We had some baked Cretan cheese for starters and lamb chops+chicken souvlaki for main dishes. The food was really good and the atmosphere perfect! We had one of our nicest experiences...in Crete in here with some tasty food, wine, homemade honey raki, bougatsa, great service, awesome views and lovely cats. The owners are super friendly and we had some really nice chats while being the only customers around! Can warmly recommend to visit! And don't forget to buy some local products while you're there ;)More

Great meal on a beautiful terrace overlooking Rethymnon, Maroulas, and the coast of Crete - Violeta is very kind and she cooks each meal to order. The ingredients are sourced directly from their farm. The food is simple, traditional Cretan - we particularly enjoyed the...dolmades (stuffed grape leaves), Greek salad with fresh goat cheese from their goats, the pumpkin balls, and the mixed grill plate. The homemade wines from their grapes are an added treat. It's definitely worth the walk and the adventure up to Maroulas. The portions are large and very well priced!More
