We had a really good meal with excellent service. The setting and decor created the perfect atmosphere. Slightly more expensive than others nearby but worth it. The honey glazed goat is particularly recommended.

Our meal was beautifully presented and was of a very high standard, in fact one of our group... More

1 star is for really lovely location, and the second is for the cheeze saganaki. The rest is nothing to write home about. The pizza was boring with almost no tomatoesaus. The expensive beef stroganoff was really terrible. The apperance on he plate was disturbing. The price is a ripoff. It is the same price you must pay for really... More

Beautiful restaurant. Excellent food. Thought for a moment I'd wandered into Masterchef. But it was just their attention to detail and precision in presenting gorgeous food. Good service. You were made to feel as if nothing was too much trouble. This is a must when we next return to Rethymnon.

We had dinner there in our visit to Rethymno. What an atmosphere! Our table was in the beautiful courtyard. Food is excellent but it's a little bit expensive. We had a great time there. Highly recommended!

These are set up as apartments and I must say that the bathroom in the room is the largest I have ever seen, anywhere! Beautiful but the service was what made this a special stay for me... The staff is extraordinary! Breakfast is award winning and with good reason. AH-Mazing!!!

Charming garden in different levels, very cosy. Organic food in the menu, very clean space, friendly service and really good food, not the typical tourist trap. Recommended. I will come back.

A little has a great atmosphere! The courtyard is lovely but can get stuffy when there's no breeze. The food and wine selection is top notch. It's a great place for a romantic evening.
