Best Restraunt so far

Every starter and main meals here could not be faulted. The staff were friendly but not pushy, and recomended i changed one starter for another, which was a great choice. We will go back.

We were keen to return to Fanari after eating here a few times on a previous visit to Crete. The food is excellent, good value and we had a great table overlooking the sea. All of us enjoyed the meal and we were very well looked after by friendly staff. One of the best restaurants, little fuss and great views.... More

This is a really nice place to come during the day because of its location, a few metres above the sea. Its so relaxing having a snack and a beer or wine, whilst watching the waves bashing the sea walls further down the road. With great service, this is an excellent place to chill out on your holidays watching coach... More

We walked into this resto by pure coincidence and boy are we ever glad we did! I had the tzatziki dip and the grilled lamb and hubby had the grilled octopus preceded by the mushroom. A liter of the very good white housewine kept us nice and happy. First off, the two wait staff, Clement and Catarina were just lovely...... More

This was a very nice place to sit and eat as you are right on the edge of the sea just a few metres above. The food is very good, the only problem I have ever had was in 2012 when I ordered a T bone steak. When it came it wasn't actually a T bone, but like a chop... More

This place was made for those who can really enjoy good cuisine. Here we have found the best quality - price balance in whole Rethymno - all food we've tried in this restaurant was fresh, plentiful and delicious.The menu included not only Greek food but also many Italian dishes for those who miss them in Greece :).
