Best meal me and my girlfriend had during our 2 weeks in Rethimno. We both had chicken which was perfectly cooked, the employees were both professional and really friendly! All around a great evening!

Went here last night and didn't read any reviews before hand which isn't like me! Pretty place and attentive waitress/waiters. Both had fillet steak and said it was one of the best we had. Apple pie was really good too.

We picked this restaurant to eat in as it looked lovely just set of the main road and a lovely garden. While the food we had was good - 1 swordfish & 1 moussaka , and the service was good, but not very friendly, there was no atmosphere compared to the other restaurants we visited in Platanias.

Unfortunately I wasn't at my best when we visited this restaurant (too much sun!) but the service and food were great. Would recommend the Cretan Pasta dish.

The Myli, though being on the main road, is set back, the seating being in an attractive garden like courtyard. We found the menu to be limited in Greek items. I ordered mixed Nuts Salad followed by Lamb Kleftikos with. Bread & dips were placed before us with our drinks. I found my lamb a little dry, the cheese appeared... More
