Had several great meals here. All the food was home produced. One of their own goats supplied my main course with home made yoghurt and cheese. The beef in wine sauce was excellent as was the chicken in lemon. Service great and very warm and friendly. The view was amazing and will definitely return on our next visit.

We had a very good, plain meal. Nothing fancy but wholesome and fresh Greek food. Friendly service. The sunset was lovely and worth going for alone.

This place is literally on the top of a huge cliff overlooking Maroulas and Rethymnon. The view is really breathtaking to see. The restaurant was quite quiet and we were initially disappointed that a lot of what we wanted from the menu wasn't available but once we'd changed our order and the food arrived we were really pleasantly surprised. Everything... More

After beaching in between Bali (where we were staying ) and Rethymnon Town we drove to the sleepy little village of Maroulas. When we got to the centre of Maroulas we asked for directions and German gentleman told us where to go but tried to sway us to another Taverna (you will notice directions/signs for both tavernas on your journey...

great restaurant in Maroulas, service was a little slow but the food was delicious and fresh. One day we just went up to the restaurant and had some beers and watched the sun set which was lovely.

We were so pleased with the recommendation to visit this restaurant. We went twice, both just before & during sunset and the views were amazing! The restaurant provides a relaxed environment where the food, the owners, and of course, the view were all excellent. It was a challenge to find the taverna on the first visit, especially through the very... More
