Beautiful setting. great food.

This is a real gem of a restaurant. 5 min drive from Rethymno old town. Better to reserve and ask for a table right on the water's edge. The food was really good and the staff really friendly. But the best part is the beautiful view over the sea and the castle of Rethymno over the bay. Has a... read more

Perfection in a restaurant! Amazing view on the water front of the old town and amazing food selection, would highly recommend. We hired a scooter to drive there as it is slightly out of walking distance from the old town but so worth it

A beautiful view of the city and castle from the terrace that's right on the water - excellent fish, salads and a lovely bread that you shouldn't eat too much of so you can save room for the outstanding food!

The food was very tasty, we had salads and stuffed cuttlefish (fantastic), Greek flavours but not the usual Greek dishes. It is almost half an hour walk from Rethymno but definitely worth the hike, we went without reservation and did not have to wait for long but I would call in advance. Good service.

The place is perfect, just by the sea with a perfect view of rethymno and its castle. The food is nice but it is very expensive. Not at all value for money..

We had the best time in Rethymno! The place was magical and the food was perfect! Don't miss it kritharoto with shrimps, ntako salad. They bring you a delicious panakota for dessert at the end with cold raki!!

Lovely setting, friendly staff and superb food. The risotto nero di sepia with squid was the best risotto we've ever eaten. Stuffed cuttlefish was also very nice. The Octopus with Fava beans chosen as a starter was extremely tasty. A lovely Cretan wine was suggested to us by the waiter which accompanied our food perfectly. After dinner the waiter brought...

Lovely setting, a very popular restaurant. Well worth a visit. The only thing I can't get my head round is that they don't clear plates from one course before they bring the next, but that was in most of the Greek restaurants not just this one. We had a Greek salad and potato peels to start. Far too much for... More

Having dinner In this restaurant was an excellent experience from every standpoint. The food was very nice and cooked in a gourmet style. Nevertheless, the prices were fair. The service was extremely kind, ready to all your needs, and helpful. I must say that it was not so common in Crete. They offered us a lot of extras when we... More
