Everything was great about this restaurant! The food delicious, the wine (made by the owner) excellent, the service just impeccable, the place and the ambience just magic! A little pricey but it definitely worths it as it is certainly top-range in Rethymnon.

Over here you shall feel how Vinice is Crete! After visiting this place I understood that the best wine is white wine and it is local.
