TRULY A HIDDEN GEM: Would highly recommended this little place for great value home-cooking with a good varied menu. It's in a small back street just behind the Rimondi Fountain to the right. Lovely and shady, out of the blazing heat - full of flowers, greenery & singing birds - very relaxing and away from all the crowds. visited twice... More

The reason of us ending in this restaurant was the label of trip advisor on their window, which normally someone would expect that they had good reviews. Of course like or dislike is always a personal choice. I have to say that the restaurant had a nice atmosphere and even inside you could see that the owners did care to... More

When we eventually found Kyria Maria - it is difficult to find - we were delighted as the food was tremendous and so well priced serving Cretan and Greek cuisine. The lady who runs the restaurant is full of personality and always happy with a lovely sense of humour. Would definitely recommend this to anyone visiting Rethymnon.

Hot day in Rethymnon. Nearly two hours of wandering in the old town. Every taverna is full of noisy tourists by the main streets. Those places don´t look attractive in our eyes. But then we were in front of Taverna Kyria Maria. What a wonderful place in the shade and just 20-30 meters side of those horrible tourist restaurants. The... More

We only found this taverna a couple of days before we left. Lovely food and excellent service. Well worth going to.

We went to Kyria Maria on our last night in Rethymno. After seven days of almost rude restaurant owners/staff trying to get people to stop at their place, we felt a bit fed up and found Kyria Maria. So glad that we did! Lovely cretan food, that actually had some taste to it rather than several other places we tried,... More

We read about this restaurant on Lonely Planet and we were happy to have found it. It wasn't hard to locate when we asked the gelateria beside the Rimondi Fountain where this is. With the restaurant's birds singing, it felt like it called us in to the right spot. A family run restaurant, it felt like our own grandmothers were... More
