This Italian restaurant has a good reputation for its food, ambience and chef.... Well, I experienced none of the above... I ordered a caprese salad and the tomato was not even red yet. Tasteless.... The pasta I ordered was terribly cooked. The service was inadequate and the wine options were limited to only the really expensive ones! The only thing I liked was the grilled tuna. Too expensive and inadequate, I would never go again and I wonder how people believe that it's got good food.... I guess if you make a good reputation in a small community, it follows you for some time... Worst and most overpriced food I've had in Crete, by far!

I wanted to keep this jem a hidden secret so that it remains the best ever. They say people fly from all over Europe to Crete to eat at don Rosario. The bruschetta tomato is outstanding, the fresh mozzarella amazing, brought from Appuglia twice a week, the spaghetti pomodoro out of this world, lobster pasta is outstanding... And so on and so fourth.
Each dish is served in a sizzling pan. i don remember eating better italian food, not even in Italy. We have stayed in Crete one week, we ate at don Rosario 3 times. This is to resume how great it is

An italian restaurant true to its origins, where you can have delicious, pasta nice antipasti and enjoy a warm and quite atmosphere. The prices are a bit salty for the island, but then again what you pay is what you get... Don't miss the pasta with lobster and try to make a reservation esp. At the weekends!
