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

Lovely location up towards the Fortezza with a view across the town towards the mountains from their terrace. Food was lovely and they dealt with allergy requests right up to a substitute for the free slice of homemade walnut cake!

Lovely location and staff. Food was good but we felt a little under-whelmed given the excellent previous reviews. Staff were very friendly and it's definitely worth a visit.

Up the top of the town by the castle entrance, views over the town. Best house red of our two weeks in Crete. Lovely local food which tasted fresh and home-cooked followed by a free slice of auntie's cake. What more could you want?!

The best meal we had by far in Rethymnon. Great choice on the menu and cooked to perfection. All of the staff were extremely friendly and even though they were very busy this did not affect their attentiveness to all of their customers. The walnut cake given as a free dessert at the end of the meal was sublime and... More

Really enjoyed the meal we had at this charming restaurant. Great views and friendly staff were matched with some of the best food we've had on our two week trip in Greece.

Charming restaurant on a quiet street in the Old Town, has a lovely terrace with views of the castle. The Kleftiko and meatball dishes were excellent! The courgette balls I had as a started were really good with some tzatsiki. There was a lovely walnut cake served complimentary at the end of our meal. We managed to get a table... More
