We had to walk through several restaurants to reach this ONE. We almost gave up, but we persevered. There are many restaurants before this one and many were trying to get us to sit down. I'm glad we made it safely. The food was incredible...the view spectacular and our server was very helpful!

Ate here on a Monday night, the whole of Rethymnon was busy but we got a table quite easily. We didn't have anything extravagant, garlic bread, tzatziki, Greek salad then grilled chicken, Fishermans Spaghetti and Swordfish. Portions were good, food was well cooked and very tasty. Special mention for the wine which was a cut above anything else we'd had... More

Hello! With this review I would like to say , that this is one of the best places in Rethymno. The location is magnificent,the service is superb,very kind and generous. I really like the family run restaurant. The food was fresh. I like the compliment afterwards.It does it matter if you eat it or not,but that was very kind.

We were staying in Crete for a friend's wedding. I was best man so lots of the time was spent with the groom, family and friends. We did get one night away so I took my girlfriend to Rethymnon for some drinks, football and dinner. I had looked this place up on here before going so I knew were to... More

One of my favorite restaurants in Rethymno, definitely my favorite on the harbour. Amazing food and perfect location looking out over the harbour. The shrimps saganaki is just delicious!! The family that own the restaurant are just so lovely and will do whatever they can to accommodate you. We have made a good friend there and we cannot wait to... More

We had garlic bread and shrimp saganaki for a starter, both were nice but the shrimps werent always properly peeled. For main we had grilled seabream which they filleted for us, and jumbo... More

When you walk around Rethymno old town, you are constantly asked to have a look and invited in to each and every place. We walked past this place a couple of times and each time were not hassled. So we decided to try. The service was exceptional and the food amazing. Great selection of fresh fresh seafood and we both... More

This was the only restaurant in the harbour which didn't try to push us into going there which was why we chose it and we were very glad we did. The food was superb and by far the best whitebait I've ever had. Service was also great with the waiter almost falling into the harbour trying to get a photo... More

This was one of our best meals of the holiday! The harbour area is known for being quite pushy, and this was the only place that didn't push us or make us feel bad when we walked past it before coming back. Some places weren't too friendly when you walked away, shouting after us etc. We couldn't get a table... More
