My girlfriend and I went here on the last night of our holiday after seeing the brilliant reviews. The mousakka was excellent however the whole evening was tainted by the intermittently rude waitress. Definitely nothing special as a place but worth going for the mousakka...More

We had visited this restaurant previously and enjoyed meal. Disappointed this time. It is one of the more expensive restaurants in the town and not worth it. Roasted vegetables tasted okay but not much of them. The fried rolls with puree filling were greasy and...More

We really enjoyed our meal at this little authentic Greek restaurant. We had a lovely starter of roasted vegetables followed by moussaka and salad. It was the tastiest I have ever eaten. Some coconut cake was brought as a free dessert with the inevitable undrinkable...More

The lamb chops are exceptional. They were really good but and so was the apaki. But the rabbit stifada and the clay lamb was just meh. Certainly not worth the prices they commanded. Having just come from Chania's culinary delights we got a sticker shock...More

We had a great meal here, one of the best we've had during our stay in Rethymnon. In reading the previous TA reviews, it would appear that those who rate it as average either had unrealistic expectations or do not understand the Greek food culture....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 participated in three contests of Traditional Cretan Cuisine in the last three years and has won twice the golden and once the silver medal.
