This was a very disappointing first evening in Rethymno. Unfortunately we had our worst experience here of all the restaurants we had eaten at. Having been to several Greek islands, we were well aware of the relaxed Greek service, this was however unacceptable. We waited...More

When I ordered food, the waiter turned his eyes in the sense that he had to wait me for chosing salat, for what i took him max 20sec more. Very very, obvious and impolite. Food was ok. Service definitely no.
