Groovy decor. Some super art. Someone for a great eye for design has developed this place. Seafood really good. Nice selection of wines. House red delicious. Service not great but we sensed that the staff were preoccupied with another guest who looked as if they were organising their wedding reception. This would make a great place for a reception.

if you want to enjoy plates with nice seafood and a fairly wide variety of wines I recommend you visit this restaurant. Prices are reasonable, it is nicely decorated and situated by the seaside just outside the center of Rethymno.

I have been many times here, but not because of the cuisine. Mini portions in giant dishes and expensive too. For cretan-cuisine-illiterates such as new tourists in Crete it's a start though. If it's your lucky day you'll get a decent service. I myself prefer going with friends, get some ouzo/raki/wine and some seafood variety dish and enjoy the sea... More
