Cretan food with a stunning view.

Very good food, familiar serving and a superb view, try to be on time for the sunset over Rethymno harbor.

The food here is delicious and the service is great. The staff are so friendly. We had a mixture of starters instead of a big meal. There was plenty and great value. The views and the sunset are breathtaking. This place is a must.

Authentique people, authentique Crete, tasty food and a view that you will never forget. You are in the middle of a mountain area having Rethymno beaches on your sight view. The family that is running the place are so nice and everything to have a very nice experience. Leaving from the busy touristical area of Platanias, Fantastico is a place... More

In every sense this was fantastic! Our first meal was delicious accompanied with home made lemonade and then we discovered they didn't take cards! 'No problem when you come back you can pay

The family prepared the most wonderful birthday lunch for me, made from their local produce, and cooked in their wood ovens. Breath taking views and close up sightings of the massive vultures. The band of local young musicians played authentic Cretan music. Nothing was too much trouble for this lovely family.

This was recommended to us by the rep at the Leoniki residence so as a group we had expectations of great home cooked Cretan food as per all other reviews. The food was cafe food at a truck stop in the uk level! Not worth the time or taxi fair up there! It felt like we were in a living... More

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...
