After a dip in the ocean, this is the place to enjoy a late lunch. Although they didn't have any fish of the day, everything else from starters to main courses, the view and the avec was perfect! And splendid service!

Glykeria is a perfect place to discover the Cretan food while you enjoy the Mediterranean way of life: no hurries, good weather, better food and awesome landscapes. As always, let the waiter recommend you which food you must taste, and get ready to fall in love with Crete.

Fresh fish, deliciously prepared. The lemon dressing - the best. The appetizer was also excellent. You can tell they know what good food is and how to make it. The service - great, no fuss, straight to the point. I would definitely want to visit again.

This is the best restaurant with greek food on the island. We enjoyed greatly the location that opens up a wonderful sunset filled up with the beauty of greek landscape.

We had lunch here before our drive to Rethymnon. Lovely host, great food. He let us try a "speciality" of his (kind of sea plant in vinegar). The view was great, service quick, and very reasonable prieces.

The best place to eat, have a a coffee or stay in Chryssoskalitissa. It is definitely the only one I would recommend there!
