We loved everything about this restaurant, from beginning to end! We tried the special menu (4 courses and a small bottle of wine for a price that was more than worth it) and we didn’t regret it. We had the chance to taste typical Cretan food, with a pleasant and helpful staff (my wife has allergies and they were highly responsive). At the end, they served us a desert, a digestive and fresh water melon slices on the house. Needless to say, with the lemons and pomegranates that grow right above our heads, the products were all fresh. We highly recommend this restaurant if you want good food at a good price!

If you want good service and great food then look no further. We only intended staying for a drink and ended up eating a late lunch too. The staff couldn’t do enough for us. Pretty garden out the back, home cooked Greek food and delicious rosé.

The speed of service makes the average snail seem jet-propelled. Our starters took over 45 minutes to arrive and then one was wrong. No sign of our main courses 30 minutes later. We left offering to pay for what we had consumed, but this was not necessary. Our waitress told us that the dishwasher had broken down leading to a shortage of plates. The manager said this was not true. The occupants of the neighbouring table had been there longer than us and were also waiting for their main courses too. The fish soup was tasty, the Tsatsiki and Taramasalata were average. You have been warned!

First visit to this restaurant although we’d walked past it on previous visits to Rethymno. Long lazy lunch with an almost unbelievable amount of food - the fixed price menus are great value and good options for both carnivores and veggies.

Setting is lovely sitting in the shade of a huge lemon tree. All staff were welcoming, friendly and good-humoured, we’ll definitely go back again.
