An excellent meal with friends, recommended by the owner of our Villa in Panormos. The view is stunning with the fortress of Rethymno in the distance and the deep blue sea. Service was attentive but not overpowering, and the food (we had fish soup and a selection of small Cretan dishes to share) was scrumptious.

Couldn't of asked for any more, flower petals, quiet table for two by the sea. Absolutely fantastic evening, great food, I recommend the sea bass, as the evening goes in relax inside the most relaxing of rooms, sofas and music, spent hours there and felt like minutes. Thank you

...among undoubtedly the most of the many many restaurants I continuously try. Perfect scenery, very nice music, nice setup, right service, view, nice at winter too! Try shrimp rice with ouzo, and for sure the Kritharoto! Choose whatever attracts your attention from the menu, with absolutely no fear of a mishappening!

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.
