Lovely setting, lovely food and drink. Good service. Must book as this place is small and gets busy ages in advance!

We came here twice and loved the food and ambience away from the typical tourist hotspots. The owner even got on his motorbike to guide us to our hotel when we first arrived and got lost. He was charming as was his young lady staff member. We had beautiful food at reasonable prices. Would not hesitate to recommend this restaurant.... More

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.)

Our best meal in Rethymnon. Beautiful family run restaurant, kind and attentive service, with splendid view over town. 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 left happy and satisfied, 100 euros for four persons was a very... More

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
