I had a wonderful meal here with many other people. We had traditional mezetes, carafes of wine, and a fantastic evening. Plus Barcelona defeated Paris:)

Excellent food and service. Truly enjoyed our culinary experience. Our waiter was fantastic and took care of our every wish. We had a splendid red wine from the local region and the leg of lamb melted in our mouths. You have to go here when you visit.

Food not great, beer not special, wine horrible, super friendly waiter with lots of helpful advice! We are here in the winter, so many choices of food were not available. I think my husband got his 3rd choice of food. I got my first choice of grilled prawns, but the were so over grilled that they were rubber and hard.... More

This is the best restaurant in Rethymno. In my two years living on Crete I've been lucky enough to have been welcomed at Taverna Othonas like a second home. There is something on the menu for everyone but be sure you don't miss out on the salads; the meat and chicken plates served with unique, homemade sauces and gourmet sides;... More

While in the midst of tourist row, this place knows how to cook. While tourist Greek cuisine is nice, it gets repetitive fast. Orthonas served food will sauces, seasonings that had me very happy. The prices were reasonable. The staff was attentive, but not intrusive. We enjoyed one of the best meals during our 10 days of eating in Crete.
