This restaurant is in old Malia, so, if you live near beach - you've got to go long to this place. For luch is too hot weather to get there, so we've come for dinnet in the evening. When you come- you get fresh bread and some food for waiting! Taste their home-wine, very delicious! All food is very good!... More

Given that we expected to get nice fresh food, however the mousaka I ordered was a portion from a tray bake and was obviously microwaved (we even heard the ding!). We were also disappointed to find that the souvalaki... More

We go to Crete twice a year and always call at Petrino Gardens on our way from the airport and too the airport as we stay on the South East part of the Island. Never fails to deliver wonderful food! The stifado is the die for! Marina & Giorgos are very welcoming and perfect hosts.

The garlic mushrooms are unmissable - heaven! The food is unfailingly good at this restaurant - wonderful ambience, perfect wine and... More

The food was delicious, traditional greek food, we ate Stifado and Musaka were excellent! Environment pretty nice with the lot of grapes and the dinner under the lemon tree. Tasty the red wine of the house. Friendly Prices. The host woman is so friendly and helpful, careful, teach some greek words. :) Fantastic Experience!
