If your looking for a good Cretan cuisine restaurant this is it. The food was really good. The mussels was to die for. We were so full when we had finished our 2 dishes. Friendly staff that doesn't come at you like they do on...More

This restaurant didn't appear on Google maps or my Lonely Planet guide and is overshadowed by the very famous (and expensive) hotel/restaurant across the street. But we gave it a try and were not disappointed. The mezza for 2 was excellent along with a local...More

Ok, the food is good, the place is nice, but to be ranked amongst the best 10 restaurants in Rethymno is a bit too much. The prices are a bit high, the food is good but maybe not so amazing as described by other people....More

This is a beautiful taverna. Good service!! Good food, but trying a bit hard to make it fancy. The price is therefor a bit higher than you'd expect from a Greek taverna.

This is by far the best restaurang I have visited in Rethymno. It was almost mind blowing - the three cheese plate was to die for, with a fantastic complement to each of the cheeses. For me, the tomato marmelade with the crusted saganaki cheese...More

Visited twice and both times excellent food and service. Beautiful place in the old town. Good wine list, we tried rose from monastery in Crete and it was lovely. Lamb chops are our favourite.

Best place I dined in in Crete. Broad choice of appetizers, main courses and seafood. I tried some of the appetizers and it was all so so good I wanted more. Local food is just amazing and beautifully served (although you must like Greek food)....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.
