Proper cretan home cooked food!!!! Local produce and ingredients. Be open to suggestions if you want to taste real food and not "tourist menu" And on top of that fantastic view overlooking Rethymno. I don't know which of the two (food or view) to score first in my review. Top marks. It's only 5 min drive up (literally up) from... More

We were taken here by the owners of the complex we were staying at and wow, what a place! The views are to die for, the sunset is as well and even after dark it still amazes you. The food is (as my husband put it) 'Greek without any bull****'! Simple dishes with great taste...

Lovely spot at the top of a mountain to see the sun set. Owners were lovely. Food was fine. Roads were windy to get to it but worth it.

This is a very special place, away from the mass tourism in the city, with a spectacular view over the Rethymno bay. A family restaurant with homemade very good greek food, and sweet people. Nice and windy on warm days, perfect sunsets in the evenings. Make sure to bring your camera!

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.

Simple, Fresh, Outstanding Greek dishes prepared with delightful skill. The view is tremendous, the service was very, very friendly, and the Raki made you not want to leave. You need to... More

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
