During our week long holiday in Crete we visited this place twice. It is a charming restaurant in a beautiful setting. The food here is to die for. Our waitress Marina could not do enough to make our visit a memorable one. This was Greek hospitality beyond belief. The food is very tasty and varied to suit all. The house... More

Good food in a beautiful setting. We visited on the night we arrived, had an early set off so arrived at our hotel, unpacked, changed and headed off in search of a restaurant to chill in. I had read reviews about Petrino Garden before we left the UK and we found it easily so went in. We weren't disappointed, the... More

I went to this restaurant as a result of reading the reviews on Trip Advisor, before I went away! I am glad I did because this restaurant has has the most delicious food, (particularly the mixed slouvaki) The environment is gorgeous, with a ceiling of grape vines, full of fruit, hanging down. The house medium/sweet red wine is divine, and... More

We went to Petrino Garden in August 2016. The Greek food was very good and the people of the restaurant are very friendly. We visit this restaurant three times and if we go again to Malia we absolutely go to Petrino Garden.

During our stay in Malia we went to different restaurants in the „Old town“, but the only one we visited several times was the „Petrino Garden“, if you go there you’ll know why! The family and especially Marina who runs the restaurant were very welcoming an the food was authentic and superb. After a week with „english breakfast“ they made... More

This is one of the better restaurants in the old town of Malia. We enjoyed the ambience and beautiful ripe grape vines hanging above the diners. Both of us enjoyed main courses which were tasty and inexpensive. I had the Milanese which was a cod in a garlic sauce in batter. My wife had the chicken kebab stir fry which... More

This pretty little taverna in old malia was one of the best we visited! The lady who owns the restaurant was so warm and welcoming and made the atmosphere in the restaurant so relaxed and friendly. We got complimentary bread and the food was outstanding. A little gem definitely worth a visit.

This restaurant is a breath of fresh air in Malia! There was a wait for our starters as the restaurant was so busy. In our eyes this was a good sign! We did not mention the wait, but it did not go unnoticed. We were offered free drinks and thanked for our patience. I would not accept the free litre... More
