Walked in off the street to be warmly welcomed. Quick service, full and varied menu and desert on the house 😊. Highly recommended!

At first we were captured by the interior and the music. Rustic but in a modern way, everything from the past found a new decorative role...music is excellent (Greek songs, not very loud). The food is also delicious, cretan cuisine with modern changes...people welcome you and are at your disposal always...Bravo to all!

It is one of the most frequented (by locals too) diners in Rethymnon. Excellent dishes, charming and lively ambience, great value. Make sure you book in advance!

We were staying in the associated hotel and given the reviews on here, we had to try it. We did ask for guidance on how many dishes we should choose and what but I still don't understand how the Cretan salad ended up as a pile of potato skins topped with some pepper flavoured cheese spread. A nice ambience, good... More

This place still is one of my favourites in Rethymnon old town both for the pleasant environment situated as it is in the narrow walks of the old town, but additionally and mainly for the originality of the menu. That has been its main attraction since it started a few years ago and still keeps it high in my regard,... More

We ate DELICIOUS Cretan mezze (like tapas but for Greek food). You order several things that you share. Waiters are very kind and gives good explanations. Food is very very good. And prices are kind too. Definitely a place that I recommend.

A simply gorgeous spot on a little cobbled backstreet a few minutes walk from the harbour. We had a late lunch at an outside table on the cobbled street under a high canopy of Bougainvillea. The menu was interesting and the food good. Prices were reasonable and a match for the stylish setting. Though the restaurant was fairly quiet at... More

Good food, good service and good prices....... We were warned against the restaurants in the most touristy part of town, but this was our first restaurant in this part and it was not at all a disappointment. They delivered on all levels. From my daughter whom wanted "proper fries" to my dad whom wanted liver. I tasted both and they... More
