Absolutely superb in every way!

Great restaurant in every way! First of all there's the scenery and the stage setting. The view is beautiful and the setting is also very nice, clean and modern with attention to detail (flowers, rose pedals, etc). We had a shrimp risotto and a local specialty l pasta with pork.

The views are great, overlooking the sea, the food was pretty reasonsble if quite over priced, but the service was awful. The place was not busy, but they seemed to have a stupid system where although 3 waiters were working all request went through only one. Result was they missed a drinks order snd after 3 requests for the bill... More

We were recommended this Restaurant by our Hotel. What an amazing place - The location being right on the waters edge. Breathtaking views of Rethymnon and the castle at sunset. Flower petals and candles on the tables! A truly magical place. The food, wine and the service were all 10/10. Book in advance for a table on the waters edge.

This restaurant is truly lovely. We sat practically on the beach for our dinner. The service was great from the start and we had a beautiful view of the Fortezza Castle as the sun set. The food was great (Greek Salad and Sea Bass in particular) and the restaurant gave us free mini panacotta for dessert. It was a thoroughly... More

We went on a recommendation from our hotel reception staff and what a position this restaurant has, right on the waters edge!! Food was excellent good choice of local, fish and meat dishes. The Sea bass was amazing. The staff were welcoming and attentive. I would loved to have eaten here every night but there are too many other places... More

Very good food. If you want to eat some different than moussaka and souvlaki then try this. Still Greek but with a twist. Location is also perfect. Also very friendly people.

Well, you can't get a better location than this. Right on the seafront with waves lapping up to the tables, ultra trendy decor and crockery and well presented food, (presentation superb, quality of food just ok) . The only real negative was the poor service and surly staff. (We had to ask 4 times for the bill and 3 times... More

We ate here 3 times we loved it so much! The service, food and location are not to be missed. It sits right on the water with a gorgeous view of Rethymno and the Fortezza. Go for lunch to experience the view during the day and evening to see the town lit up at night. Absolutely a 5 star restaurant!

Whatever else you do, if you are in or near Rethymnon, a visit to this restaurant is a must. Everything about it is magical; the setting, the service, the food. Phone early and book a table on the sea front.
