Service with a smile

On holiday with my girlfriend and saw the reviews for this restaurant and thought we would give it a go for our first meal out. As we got lost it took us a while to get there but certainly wasn't disappointed with the food and had the best service experience ever. Really did pull out all the stops

Having tried a host of tavernas in Malia we decided to give Petrino Garden a visit. Seating is nicely set on a terrace under the grape vines. For starters I had a Shrimp cocktail and my partner had the garlic bread with cheese. My cocktail was somewhat disappointing & small when I compare it to one I had the night... More

Petrino is one of our favourite restaurants in Malia,Crete. It is family run by George the chef & his wife Marina,with help from their daughter Amelia. They have introduced a new menu this year,with old favourites still included but new choices as well. Have to say the standard of service & food is second to none. All the food is... More

We always enjoy a lovely meal each time we visit Petrino Garden. The food is delicious and the house wine is lovely. The owner Marina is very friendly. Overall this is a fantastic place to eat, in the charming old village in Malia.

Petrino Garden in the Old Town is a marveloous place with a warm home atmosphere and perfect tasty food and wine. Very kind and hospitable mistress, so attentive to her guests, knows english very well, with a good sence of humour.

A group of six of us went to Petrino Garden for our last night, it was packed out and we had to wait a short while, but it has a nice bar area so that was no issue. The owner of this restaurant is such a nice lady, and she really goes out of her way to make your visit... More

Having honeymooned on the lovely island of Crete, we found this gorgeous restaurant in the Old Town area of Malia. The food itself was amazing, in particular the Farfale Pasta with Salmon in Champagne Sauce was my favourite. The hospitality was amazing, Marina is a wonderful hostess, very warm and welcoming. As this was our honeymoon we were treated to... More
