We have been here twice during our 2-week stay. Everytime dishes were delicious, a way better than in other restaurants in Malia and nearby cities. We love all the atmosphere in this place, dacoration with green grapes above our heads. Deliciosius white and rose house wines, perfectly made fresh lamb chops, chicken souvlaki, Greek salad, gyros, shrimps, feta in the... More

This was definitely our favourite restaurant in Malia. Our only complaint was that service can be a little slow but the food is well worth the wait. Just make sure you give yourself plenty of time to enjoy the food and venue.

The setting was beautiful. The host was wonderful I didnt get her name but nothing was to much trouble for her. The food was excellent and just enough, unkike other local tavernas who think piles of food is the way to go. 43 euros for three courses for two. Excellent value for money.

My girlfriend and I decided to spend an evening at Petrino after reading all the positive feedback on TripAdvisor. All the positive things written here before turned out to be very fitting! Authentic Greek food, combined with a beautiful location and the hospitality is excellent! If we come back to Stalis/Malia in the future, we will definitely be back in... More

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
