First impressions not that good, the welcome wasn't that warm, the menus were just dropped down and the advertising radio station playing was way too loud, I'm not keen on them at home but having someone selling electrical gear or whatever in Greek was grating. I must say the pizza was good, we had the seafood one and liked it... More

Fresh, fast and very good. Location is good. Ca 500 meters from Old Town towards Heraklion Airport. Gode ingredienser, rask servering og veldig godt :-) Ligger midt i kremen av gode restauranter langs strandpromenaden.

We had two takeaway pizzas from here during our stay in Rethymnon, on the nights where we just didn't have time to eat out. Both pizzas were delicious, we were made extremely welcome while we waited for them to be freshly cooked and we wished we'd been able to come in for a sit-down meal. The restaurant always seemed to... More
