We are very proud to announce that our menu consists entirely and exclusively from organic products, i.E. Products grown without the help of fertilizer and chemicals. The heart of Akrovatissa beats in the village Oros, 12 km SW of the town of Rethymno, where the organic farm from which we obtain and transfer daily all our ingredients is settled. Our constant effort for the best possible outcome would have remained incomplete without the assistance of the local community, since the oldest residents of the village were the ones who trusted us with their traditional and sometimes forgotten from the rest of the world recipes and they also offered us their expertise in performing cooking with traditional ways such as the wooden oven we use to prepare our food. However, their contribution does not end there, as they actively contribute to the process of the food production, ie the preparation of vegetables, pulses, dairy, meat, wine and raki, whereas every morning they knead and bake Akrovatissa's delicious bread.

A proper gem in the heart of the Old City of Rethymno!

Akrovatissa is a great place to spend your evening in the beautiful Old City of Rethymno.. Beautifully placed in the picturesque alleys, Akrovatissa offers you an easy going and relaxed experience accompanied with cold local draught beer or raki and amazing dishes prepared by chef Manolis.

Akrovatissa is located in the heart of the Old Town of Rethymno. All tables are outside in the little alleys, making it a very interesting place to be. This is stricly a summer restaurant. There is no inside area, or at least i didnt see one. What i liked about the place was the great selection of music which was... More

Akrovatisssa is the best place to relax and drink a beer or raki. In my opinion as a local is that the quality of a place can be measured by that of raki and akrobatissa has one of the best. Furthermore music is great and all that are served are very good especially giaurtlu. So akrovatissa is a must in... More

Akrovatissa is a well hidden gem in Rethymnon old town, relaxing and friendly, where you can enjoy some shots of raki or beer tasting the delicious dishes that Manolis creates and cooks himself. Definitely ask for the day's special plate! A place that well differs from all the identical touristic and noisy places lying across the Rethymnon old town. Sited... More
