We happened upon this tiny restaurant/cafe while checking out the old town and decided to return there for lunch. So glad we did, what an amazing little place.
You don’t really choose from a menu but instead are invited to go and see what Stella...has cooking on that particular day. We are both vegetarian and there were plenty of options. We chose to have a mixed plate and everything on it was fantastic. This is proper home cooked Greek food and some of the best we had. Real homely atmosphere and very reasonable prices. We also went back on our last day. Oh and also does takeaway so if your in a rush no problem. Will be back.More
We happened upon Stella's Cafe as we were window shopping in Rythymno. Stella was so gracious, welcoming and wonderful, and her food was amazing. It is all home cooked by Stella. She serves many traditional Cretan dishes and, although we didn't sample it, she was...serving rabbit that day! Stella introduced us to several of her regulars who were also very welcoming. It is just a wonderful place to spend an hour or 2 and enjoy some great food.More
Over the course of our latest trip we got food from Stella's at least 5 times. The food is always tasty, cooked with a passion for local food and the portions are astounding.
If you like genuine home cooked stick to your ribs food then...you can't get better in my opinion. Stella is a superstar.More
What a treasure in Rethymno. A wonderful little eating place where you can eat like a local..... Yes, really.
We had a choice of chicken and potatoes, moussaka, beef, ratatouille, pasta, rice, beans, pork, spaghetti bolognese and probably something I've forgotten! Whatever you fancied you...could have on your plate!!
We had the chicken and beef, ratatouille, potatoes, beans and it was just like eating good, honest, home cooked dinner. Very refreshing and satisfying. Grapes and Raki, bread, all for €8. Beautiful food and Stella is a charming lady who made us feel very welcome. Thank you so much.More
I'm not sure I can add much to the many amazing and deserved reviews this place has had, apart from saying that I agree wholeheartedly. I arrived on the early side for lunch - before they were really entirely ready, but I was made so...welcome. Stella showed me all the things she had cooked so far, and I had slow cooked pork with orange and a bit of everything else piled onto my plate. Delicious food. Friendly service. Unpretentious and great.More
At Stella's you are offered a variety of traditional home cooked greek food, such as rabbit, slow cooked pork, stuffed vine leaves, and the list goes on, there is no menu for lunch, Stella explains and shows you what she's cooked and brings out a...big plate with at least 6 different items, all for 8 euros. Tasty, comforting food, all served up with Stella's warm and homely hospitality, a great lady and a great cook.More
