Delicious restaurant where everything is made by their own. For my family this restaurant is a must and you should definitely try it if you are in Episkopi, Rethymnon area. Not touristic, they offer the best local dishes that I have try in this area....It's family owned, and they are so interested in getting guests satisfied that it's one of the places where we find ourselves like at home. We come since 10 years to Crete.More

The restaurant has excellent cuisine, high quality ingredients, fresh simple recipes and... huge portions. When you get there be sure to try at least some of their signature dishes such as Greek salad with potato fries, high variety of local cheeses, octopus in wine souse,...snails (is hard to decide between the red souse and rosemary ones), fried baboons and of course, the Cretan lobster pasta accompanied by the fresh rose house wine. What makes the holiday perfect is the fact that the owners are very welcoming and once there you feel like a family member returning home.More

We were staying nearby and our host recommended this place. It is definitely off the beaten track and not one we would have thought of. Lovely lady running it, nothing too much trouble. Portions are huge!! Home made courgette balls to start felt like a...main course! I had mousaka and my husband had pork in sun dried tomato sauce - delicious but could only eat half so were given doggy bags to finish the next day! Very nice wine and fantastic valueMore

If you want amazing food home-cooked just like the locals eat in their homes, this is the place. This is the 10th or so time I’m eating here and finally I thought I should write something. The owner Malamou is a sweet lady who cares...about each customer as if they are her children. She will fuss to make sure you get everything just right. Today she noted that I really enjoyed some huge olives she had placed in the appetizer dish mixed in with the normal ones; so when she brought the regular salad out, she had placed more huge olives in it for me. The portions are rather large. I would recommend ordering whatever is oven cooked rather than the grill, as that’s what this place is known for. Further her appetizers such as stuffed flowers are amazing. Some important points that experience Eating here many times has taught me: 1. Avoid Greek holidays such as August 15, as you should every place that is very popular with the locals. They will all have booked tables and mobbed the available seats, and the service will of course have trouble keeping up. 2. On an extremely hot sweltering day, consider coming at dusk or later 3. This place is amazing if there is a strong northern breeze 4. The setting is a romantic little garden, but no view. Then again you pretty much have amazing views everywhere on Crete; here we come for amazing food and not views. Enjoy the best food on Crete!More

We’ve been to this restaurant so many times and I can 100% recommend it! The food is amazing and almost everything is organic. The staff is super nice and it’s just a great atmosphere.

We arrived at the taverna for a late lunch. Probably they did not expect any guest at that time, but we received a very warm hospitality. The food was great. Very savoury, fresh and well cooked. The local wine was great as well. Portions are...huge! Price absolutely fair.More

We had pre-ordered our food. We arrived there they would serve us a small plate every half an hour. Four hours later we didn't had half of what we ordered. The kids were terribly hungry and complaining. At the end we had to go and...eat at some other place. Ridiculously expensive prices and they wanted to charge us for what we didn't got!!! At the end all they could say is "I am sorry". They totally ruined our day - I will never go there againMore

All...in all the place provides not only accomodation and food but a rejuvenation of body, mind and soul!Congratulations to Malamatenia!More

We had the absolute pleasure of staying in the apartments for 7 nights and had breakfast & dinner in the restaurant every single day as it was so delicious! Fresh, homemade & often homegrown food with generous portions. Best lamb chops I’ve ever had. The...breakfasts were out of thIs world - fresh, homegrown fruits & orange juice with Greek yogurt, honey, fennel pies & pastries just to name a few! We never managed to eat everything. We had the most wonderful holiday thanks to these wonderful hosts who our one & three year old boys adored! Thank you xxMore
