Another great find, lovely setting and great food. Tucked away near the castle the service was excellent. The lamb in honey was excellent as was the five cheese starter.

Top quality food and preparation, excellent service, relaxed and friendly. Pricey but worth it. This was one of the two best restaurants we visited in Greece (the other was in Agio Nikolas.)

Avocado salad delicious, sole in champagne sauce really good, greek white wine surprisingly good, also. At the end the house offered us a soft and very tasty walnut cake.

We've been coming here for years now and we just love it, especially the avocado salad! The setting is lovely, but it's probably best to book the day before as it does get busy. And if the weather is cold or rainy, the inside seating area is also really nice.

We visited last night, we decided to call ahead and make a reservation, when we arrived we were greeted by the owner and a very wide smile. The service and ambience was very good, the owner taking time to speak to us about the season and clientele that usually dine with him. The food was prompt and piping hot. Delicious... More

Lovely little spot for lunch. Lovely food (interesting menu). Views on the terraced patio were fab. Waiting on staff were a tad aloof, but service was good

Our party of 8 had a lovely meal here. The service was excellent throughout, the menu really caught the eye and the food didnt disappoint. Top that off with a superb view across Rethymnon town and a great location by the fortezza and it all adds up to perfect night. Be sure to book ahead as this place was full... More
