We had a great evening meal here (we're vegetarian) Fresh local food cooked well and served in a modern style so it looks good on the plate Staff were very friendly and helpful Only downside was that - like everywhere else in Greece - they don't bother enforcing the ban on smoking in public places

The outside eating area is beautiful and the staff is welcoming. They were happy to serve me a half portion appetizer as I was alone. I can't say enough about the lamb chops! Best I have ever had!

This was the first restaurant we went to in Rethymnon and we returned twice more in a week. Every meal was totally delicious, superbly cooked and excellent value - I would highly recommend the lamb chops in honey and thyme. Staff were really friendly and made you feel part of the family.

We had dinner at this small restaurant hidden in a quiet side road of the Rethymnon old town. Most tables are in the yard of an old house and ventilators take care of a refreshing breeze during hot nights. The proposed dishes are creations of a talented young Chef, Simos, (whom we had the chance to meet and congratulate). They... More

We were in Rethymnon for eleven days in September and we were determined to eat somewhere new every night ... and we did, apart from this place, because I think we had our best meal ever - yes, ever. The food is just splendid and the menu is wide and interesting. This is why we returned to it. Apart from... More

The restaurant is on the site where once stood a Venetian building which was linked to the residence on the south side through a doorway. It is believed that where the covered dining area stands was once a large storeroom and animal stable. The dining courtyard was indeed a courtyard and animal feeding area. In 2003 the chef and owner Harris Pavlakis decided to open the restaurant. The restaurant serves traditional local and greek dishes with local products and provides a friendly and romantic atmosphere. Our restaurant is certificated for Cretan Cuisine from The Greek Academy Of Taste and has won 2 gold medals one in the 9th contest of Cretan Traditional Cooking and the other in the 6th contest of Cretan Traditional Cooking.
