An amazing place, very comfortable, friendly and great prices. Owner and family really take care of guests of all ages. Music by owner and his son was absolutely brilliant and a little different to what you may consider 'greek music'. After the meal the owner keeps offering complimentary wine, raki, brandy and everything. Great time we ate here several times.

This restaurant was just around the corner from our villa and was something that we stumbled across. Great food, excellent value for money and definitely a good place to eat!

This was one of my favourite places to eat in Rethymnon, the service was great and the owner was exceptionally generous with our large group. The food was good and very reasonably priced, and the restaurant was a lovely place to sit in. Particularly enjoyed the live music from the owner and his son on our last night in Crete.... More

We've been here twice on our holiday and will return again before we leave. The swordfish is fresh and cooked to perfection and so is the calamari. The lamb slouvaki is divine. I'm writing this in the restaurant having just finished our main course. Don't hesitate try it - you won't be disappointed. Excuse the photos taken half way through... More

We visited this taverna 6 years ago on a previous holiday to Crete and returned last week as a party of eight.. Andreas the owner recognised us and we were treated like family. It was a pleasure to see the taverna full on the nights we ate there and everyone had smiles on their faces.. Trip Adviser reviews have put... More

Service was ok, but regulars got preferential treatment. Starter was nice, however main courses undercooked and lacked flavour. Reasonably priced, however would not visit again.

The best place we ate in Rethymnon. The food was absolutely amazing (get the seafood platter for 2 - come with an empty stomach!) and make sure you have a chance to chat with the owner. Him and his son play the guitar and sing sometimes and the place has a great atmosphere with friendly staff and great food. Really... More

Papa Andreas is holding a plank of quality at a very high level for many many years. We were there in 2011 dining at least 10 times and now in Aug 2016 we were warmly welcomed again. Real authentic taste of Crete traditional dishes, all fresh and tasty, quickly served. Highly recommend! NB! Might need to book a table if... More

We found this restaurant near the end of our holiday and ended up returning 3 times. Large portions of well cooked food at a good price with a characterful owner. If you are lucky, the owner and his son will get out their guitars, play and sing stunning music. Complementary starter, pudding and Raki every meal... as well as a... More
