Description: Nothing like the ordinary , Thymari Restaurant is a unique place to have breakfast, lunch , dinner , coffees and coctails! The surroundings are picturesque , everything is made by stone carved by the finest craftsmen, plus there is a very large pool in the middle of restaurant area which offers the tranquility that only water can provide. As for the view...be prepared for a breathtaking view of the White Mountains and the valley beneath it! The magical combination, of mountains, lake and sea shore of the Cretan outskirts , are like a canvas that can be wiewed from every table at Thymari Restaurant! The food that Thymari serves is made from local , fresh products some of them from the very village of Exopolis! Recepies whic are innovative but based in traditional foods , is a guaranty for an exceptional meal in an outstanding place!

“Breathtaking view, excellent food and service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 1, 2013

The restaurant/hotel is located on top of a hill overlooking Georgoupoli bay and facing Lefka Ori.
The menu is restricted to a few number of dishes (mediterranean/cretan cuisine), but everything we tasted was excellent.

“Good food- amazing views!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 1, 2013

This restaurant is a little jewel!
The service is great, the food is lovely and the views are outstanding.
We had a couple of meals there. I can't remember what we had the first time- so it obviously didn't blow me away- but I had Rabbit Stew the second time which was really scrummy.
It's best to get there just before sunset, as the White Mountains are silhouetted against the sky, with sweeping views down to the sea at Georgioupolis. Highly recommended!!

“One of my favorite view in Crete”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 21, 2013

The food is really good, the Exopoli salad, is my favorite salad, they have a good menu, with affordable prices, every day you have one or 2 special meals, the waiter will probably tell you, but don't forget to ask, this is always a good one, we took it 3 times, and 3 different meals, just perfect.
We also tast the cake in chocolate I forgot the name but it was good. The portion are big, and you can trust me, you are not hungry after eating at Thymari.
The Dakos has to be test, ask for an extra garlic on it, you will love it.
The service is very important and they are working very good, you really appreciate to be consider as a guest not a client.
The view, you will probably come for it and never leave, we test the White House wine and Raki were very good, special compliment for the Mojito, I am really expecting a good one when I order, here it is really good. The products from the region and the taste of the vegetables, cheese, fruit... It's one of my favorite place for relaxing, too bad that we have not enough holidays to enjoy it more.

“great food, great view”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 7, 2013

I would definitely recommend this restaurant, the food and view is great.
The place was very quiet when we visited so it lacked a bit of atmosphere but the the view made up for this.
The staff were very helpful and friendly, the waiter went out of his way to help us and gave us good tips on cretan food and advice on where to go in georgioupolis etc.
Also the house wine was good and last but not least the Raki was also good
