This was the second time we visited old Malia and we can't believe we missed Petrino Garden last year. We ate there twice this year and the food was excellent. Marina is an excellent host and the restaurant is set in a beautiful garden environment. We are lovers of organic homegrown food and some of Petrino's is taken from Marina's... More

After a walk in the old charmning town of Malia we found the little square that hosts two restaurants, a big noisy tourist (but very charming looking) restaurant and the smaller family run restaurant of Petrine Garden. We choose the smaller one and it didn't disappoint at all. Our hostess, a very friendly lady, who we didn't get the name... More

The atmosphere is outstanding - set in a small square in the old town opposite the larger San Giorgiou restaurant. We had four meals here in a week's holiday, which says it all really. My husband adored the meatballs in tomato sauce and I had the most delicious lamb chops - sourced locally from the Lassithi plateau. Marina runs the... More

About 300 mtrs. behind the church you find the best restaurant and kitchen in town. The kindness and hospitality of Marina and daughter Amalia is great and the 'cook-art' of Giorgos is excellent. Every day superb Greek dinners with daily fresh vegetables, meat or fish. During our holidays in Malia we daily visit Petrino Garden because this is the best... More

Looking for a place with excellent food, truly Greek relaxed atmosphere and owners who still create this spirit of warm, honest hospitality? Then check out this place in the old village of Malia. A bit hidden, but close to the old center, you will find a traditional restaurant and taverna in a beautiful garden, away from all the touristy noise... More
