I go there ervery time I am in Crete. I love the outdoor seating a few feet from the waves of the Mediterranean Sea with an amazing view of Rethimnon Castle. A rich variation of typical fresh Greek specialities are served by the friendly staff. The prices are slightly higher than in traditional taverns but the food and the atmosphere... More

Whilst staying at Casa Moazzo, our hosts recommended this restaurant for its stunning outlook and excellent food. We had a table at the front, overlooking the sea and with a lovely view of Rethymnon fort as the sun set. Service and waiting staff were relaxed and friendly. To start I had some of the best sausages I have ever tasted... More

Very nice restaurant. One of the best in Rethymno, and always our choice whenever we are visiting city of Rethymno. Nice quality vs prices and quantity. Well prepared, friendly staff, clean restrooms.

Prima plora is a great place to visit. A beautiful sea view, good service and amazing food. Fresh fish and seafood but also salads! I recommend the squid risotto and kalamari from grill, it' s heaven.

This restaurant is very well located on the waterfront. Hard to find a restaurant in Europe that is better situated. The food is very good - served hot and very fresh. Had the linguine with fruit sea ;) very tasty and a decent portion for 14euro. The wines were excellent - bit pricier than other restaurants but very good. 68... More

One of the best restaurants I have ever visited. Food and service are just excellent (and of the same quality since 2011 I first visited it). One should definitely try the seafood pasta and the grilled kalamari. At the end ask for the ice cream made from sheep milk!

I have been visiting Crete twice a year for the last 11 years and have had a full range of service in restaurants but had never experienced waiters as rude and indifferent as those at prima plora. I have eaten there four times over the last three years and had always been impressed. On this occasion though the food was... More

Very good fresh fish, excellent service, helpful staff. Tables right on the sea front, I loved the small fried Aegean shrimps and enjoyed a pink "dorade" the wine served in very nice glasses... Stunning view to the illuminated Venician forteresse. The bill a bit high but fish has a high price....
