“Fantastic food and service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 5, 2014

We've eaten in Raeti during two summer holidays and will be back the next time when we visit Agia Marina too. Atmosphere and service is excellent - exceptionally friendly, very fast and correct and the food is great. Going back for the second year was like going to visit well known friends.
Because Raeti is very popular and full, one may have to wait for a while to get a table without a reservation but we never had to wait more than 20 minutes.
We just love the Place and the staff!

“Beautiful food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 30, 2014 via mobile

We ate here and could not believe how gorgeous the food was. Free garlic bread to start followed by our lovely main course. I had the lamb in garlic sauce, the lamb literally fell off the bone. Daughter had spaghetti with shrimp, equally lovely. We didn't have a dessert but was served complementary ice cream and water melon. All with a friendly quick service. We ate at 8 and we're lucky to get a table, from 9 there was a 45 minute wait so get there early or book in advance. Enjoy :)

“Best Restaurant in Agia Marina and Platanias area”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 24, 2014

We always look for restaurants with lots of guests. Empty restaurants usually have poor food or service or both and you can't expect the food to be fresh because of poor turnover. The Raeti Taverna Restaurant attracted our attention immediately, always packed with customers, you might have to book a day ahead to get a table or come at odd times. This place is really, really worth it! The service is personal and very friendly and sincere, and surprisingly fast. Free garlic bread is served first along with a complimentary sample taster of homemade potato sallad or cheese sallad or the like. The pizzas are really good and the pastas too, but the Lamb with garlic sauce is truly heavenly!! Each time we ate there we were surprised by complimentary desserts of homebaked cake or pastry with fruit or ice cream and a drink with raki and mint. We had 4 favorite restaurants in the area but this one was by far our number one choice so we ate there 3 times in 12 days! Excellent and affordable, this family run restaurant deserves all praise!!

“Not so good anymore :-(”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 23, 2014

We have been this restaurant every year for 5 years. I liked Raeti earlier, but this year it was a little disappointment. Feels like the restaurant have focused to the marketing. Food wasn't so tasty anymore, the portions were rather small, too much customers and I think that's why the atmosphere was too hectic. I'm sorry but there is so many more restaurants, so the rest of our holiday ate somewhere else. Even though the personnel is awesome (especially Lilian and Tonia <3), I'm still little bit disappointed.
