“Best taverna experience we've had for a long time!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2014

Best taverna experience we've had for a long time. Staff is very friendly (always feels good to be welcomed with a bright smile and warm words).

The menu is definitely inventive, not "just the usual' items that can be found in a typical taverna's menu.
I tried as much as my stomach could accept and i paid much less than my wallet could afford for a dinner like that!
Wines were excellent also, and local raki a great delight!

So all in all a super yummy anf friendly place, mouth is still watering from the experience and we'll definitely be going back!
Thank you Pagona!! hope to see you again!!

“Good memories”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2014

The place is very cute and Pagona is exceptional. The dishes are very good, serves traditional cuisine and excellent surprise everyone, even those who are used to eating the Greek and Cretan cuisine. I recommend trying the restaurant, is located on the way from Rethymno to Maroulas, a small village very pretty.

Outstanding food and service. Food that that makes your mouth water, cooked by Pagona's mother. Served by the bubbly hostess Pagona. Well reccomended.

“Amazing fresh food at super prices”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2014

This resteraunt is the best in pltanes for fresh traditional greek cuisine. The prices are fantastic and the service is incredible.
This is a family friendly place but also will make anyone onholiday feel at home.
The fresh ingredients (lamb, fish etc) are very reasonably priced and we cannot find better.
We tried nearly the whole menu whilst on holiday as teh food was just so good and great value too.
The only problem is the extra weight be went home with after eating so much tasty food.
Would reccomend any one on holiday try this place if you want a taste of greek.
Thank you Pagona it was excellent as always!
We will most definately be back again next year. Thanks fo rthe olive oil and raki you gave us - Yammas!
Love always form Kerri
