Came here for the first lunch of our holiday, had a nice bacon and cheese sandwich with chips and a large cold beer to wash it down with, the service was very good and price wasn't too high, nice to chill out and look over the sea after a walk into the old town

This was the restaurant we tried on our first night in Rethymno, and we weren't disappointed. The food was a of a very good quality, and the service was excellent. Alex, the owner, was very friendly and made us feel very welcome.

As we were very hungry and there was no open taverns around (we were in Rethymno in the begining of April) we found only one tavern open and decided to try. White house wine was nice, fresh fish of the day was nice too. Fried calamari could be better but still good enough. Friendly staff, raki glass after the dinner... More

The service was pleasant, but the Italian food wasn't as good as we expected. However, my friend enjoyed the lamb chops. The eggplant from the oven, the tzatziki, and olive paste were all good.

Couldn't fault anything about this place. Only 2 minutes walk from our hotel. The food was delicious ...sampled nearly every cocktail with my fiancee and were all the best weve had on the island plus were the cheapest weve had. Alex was the best host weve had, i could not fault him. The view from the restaurant was superb looking... More

Spent roughly 3 hours here sampling the food and the cocktails. Alex is very hospitable and friendly. the food was delicious and the cocktails were great. The meals are very reasonably priced and the cocktails are €5- €6. I would recommend the special lissus (which ingredients are secret :p). Even as the restaurant busied during our stay he never failed... More

Not just a pizza place but a very good restaurant with extensive menu which we are slowly working our way through. I love their Seafood Spaghetti and my other half rates the Moussaka the best ever. Alex and his staff are always very friendly and nothing is too much trouble. In the 100 or so visits we must have made... More

We read the reviews and decided to have a meal there. I am glad we did. There is a vast menu at very reasonable price. The waiter service is very quick and polite. The waiter that was working that night had very good English and could have some 'English Banter'. The restaurant is between a 15-20 min walk from the... More
