Very good food in a casual restaurant in Old Rethymnon, with an eclectic decor. Open air with tables on both streets (front and back). It is known for "small plates" and is popular with locals and tourists. We also had a carafe of wine and a jug of tap water (the water is good in Rethymno so there is no... More

Informality is the key here and the food's pretty good too. Would have preferred to have the advertised Cretan draght beer instead of the German alternative!

to be true, we didnt eat there. I tried to book a table, and I was told they are not making table reservations. When we came 2 hours later, we were told that table is booked, so we would have to eat and get out in 1 hour. Then nobody could take an order in 20 minutes. Then I asked... More

You could spend quite a while here just admiring the gorgeous quirky décor, and everything we ordered was absolutely delicious (if heavy on the salt). The waitress kept disappearing, though, until the end when she stuck around and tried to force us to have dessert. Not a pleasant ending to a luxurious meal.

A small, tastefully decorated space, a good selection of local delicacies (not too many and everything freshly made) and friendly (but not always efficient) service.

This place besides the cozy design, is a tavern with very carefully prepared dishes. From traditional cretan cuizine (apaki, sausages, ntakos e.t.c. ) to gourmet cuisine. Everything was tasty.

Although it was party night, the hosts were still very attentive to all their guests. The building is lovely and the food superb. I think it has got it just right, fairly traditional but with a modern twist. It is obviously popular with all age groups as was the case when we were there. Lots of good places all around,... More

We stopped here for lunch on a day we stuffed ourselves at breakfast. I had read it was tapas and we were not looking to eat a huge meal so it worked out really well. I LOVE tapas because I HATE menus. I can never decide haha. We had the chicken and honey dish and some kind of pepper and... More
