The food is as good as in your grandma's kitchen. Tasty, very cheap (considering it is Crete). The place is very small with few densely packed tables. It is not too comfortable if you are more than two people. Larger families or groups are advised...More

Stella’s Kitchen is truly where the locals dine. My uncle, whom has lived in Rethymno for many years, brought me and my daughter to Stella’s for lunch on a recent visit to Crete. The restaurant is small and intimate and conveniently located in Old Rethymno....More

With only a small number of tables, and not a lot of space , the place more than makes up for it in food quality, eating next to locals and feels like you are eating at a friend’s mom house. Definitely going back to try...More

Back to Stellas again for the fourth year in a row. So glad we found Stellas on our first visit to Crete. Great home cooked food from the kitchen. Pick what you want from the many pots and pans sizzling in the kitchen and Stella...More

Lovely little place with great homemade food and friendly staff. We had a plate of different vegan dishes for only 7 Euros. Would recommend going mid afternoon latest as they make their food fresh daily and might run out of what you want to try

This place is a delight - cosy and sweet local cafe/restaurant and run by Stella, a lovely woman who is really friendly and a fantastic cook. I had the Cretan breakfast which was massive! Bread was so fresh with crunchy seeds on the top, the...More
