Location and contact

Oinoa s menu is a tribute to the greek farmers, fishermen, growers and wine makers who inspire us to do their produce justice. From field to fork, our food philosophy runs through every dish we create. Wherever it is possible, we use Greek ingredients to make simple food that's presented with excellence.

Definitely the best bistro in town. Great wine list. Best ribeye steak and two lovely ladies will ensure a great night. Recommended.

I’m an American living in Crete. I had a craving for liver and this excellent restaurant had it. The bread with salmon spread was also outstanding. The house white wine, which is local, was also excellent. I’ll be back!

The other reviews are correct about the service - it’s excellent and the staff here are very friendly and welcoming. To be honest though, if you’ve dined elsewhere in Crete such as Heraklion or Rethymno the food here is average. The lamb which I ordered...More
