if you are looking for real family greek food, you are in the right place. Try the cheese pies and the vegeterian pies!!

“A great place to eat in a relaxed environment”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2013

I had several meals here, lunchtime and evening. It's a tucked away from the main street in the old town down a turning behind the Rimondi Fountain, but well worth the effort of finding. Really good freshly prepared food and good house wine. A genuine welcome from friendly staff. Complementary dessert and raki. Attractive setting both inside and out. As a solo woman traveller I felt really comfortable eating there. A most enjoyable experience every time I visited.

This is a popular traditional taverna. The food is good, basic home cooking in a good atmosphere with very friendly and welcoming staff. Also excellent value.

“Do try this one”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2013

What a great find. We had a simple lunch of mixed hot and cold meze, with great local house wine and Raki with our complimentary dessert.
This is local food at its best in one of the narrow streets of the old town. Atmosphere was excellent and could not be more authentic.
Could not have asked more - we would have gone back if the holiday had not come to an end.
Wish we had spotted it sooner.........

“Best food we had in Rethymno”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2013

Gorgeous, hearty home cooked-style food. We just had to go back twice. You can see the chef really cares about the food they make; it felt like we were finally eating proper Cretan cuisine cooked with heart -unlike some other restaurants which really are just tourist traps. Prices are also "local": it cost us only 33 euros for 2 starters, 2 mains and half a litre of delicious wine -with free bread, water, as well as complimentary honey cheese pies and Greek liquor at the end of the meal! The setting is very beautiful, perfect for a romantic evening away from the hords of tourists. A real find.
