A small Taverna in the old Town of Malia run by a lovely couple George and Marina, who after a couple of visits treated us like family. Lovely food at a really reasonable price. The most beautiful thing about this restaurant was the grape vines with bunches of grapes hanging and growing above the diners mixed with the Lemon tree... More

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
