Pleased to see locals dining among tourists. Somewhere a bit special and sophisticated compared other seafront restaurants, perfect for celebrating birthday/ anniversary. Beautiful seafront location with views of Rethymnon town lights in the distance. Seating outside is covered and heated, great during April when it's a little colder and windy at times. Indoor seating available. Bookable online although unsure if... More

Very neat restaurant, wide choice of food, friendly service, right on the sea front, with both a covered area and outside seating. A good lunch was followed by free ice cream

We had to walk out of Rethymnon a little bit to get to this place, and the path leads off the main road to a small side street along the beach - dont let yourself be fooled by a run down ruined building having the name of the restaurant on it - this is not it. Walk on, and after... More

By far one of the nicest restaurants in Rethymno. The view is spectacular; located directly on the water. The food is delicious and very unique. We have been several times and have never had a single complaint. Highly recommend. George Frangiadakis

This is one of the best restaurants I ever visited in an island and I used to study in Rethymno and stayed for five years..the restaurant is one of the reasons that my vacations for 2017 will be at Rethymno for the third time.!!!

We strive for what we love in a world that has forgotten the value of food in our lives. A plate of food, eaten in a restaurant or at home, the taste and the quality depends on the raw materials we use. With this as our principle and also that are forthright in any form of mass production of the raw materials, we have come and we have partnerships only with small local producers, who have the same philosophy as us. Our cuisine consists of raw materials without pesticides and fertilizers and from animals grown and fed in nature, as normally required in warehouses and not eating GM foods.
