This lovely restaurant is situated in the old town of Rethymnon, close to the Fortezza, with wonderful views over the city, and you really need to book a table if you want to take advantage of the view.

Food here is delicious, well presented, and plentiful. The complimentary walnut cake at the end of the meal is wonderful.

We found this wonderful restaurant halfway through our 10 day holiday and managed to visit on three occasions, each time the food was perfect, lovely friendly service We were made so welcome and as a part of our holiday is dinning out this restaurant made it so very special. On the second night of our visit it rained (the only time it did on our holiday) and we we were all moved inside with no fuss and no disturbance. After the evening had ended (it was still raining) it was difficult to get a taxi so Mary anne the proprietors English wife drove us back to our hotel. On the third visit I ordered lobster it was perfect. So what can one say against this restaurant, book in advance or you may well be disappointed if you just turn up. It is difficult to find if you use satellite navigation but once found you won't forget it. It is one of the main reasons we have booked to to return to Rethymno in 2014.

We chose this restaurant because of the reviews and were pleased we did ..super location down a side st behind the fortress.Yummy food and professional but unobtrusive service fish great but what stood out was the quality and taste of accompanying veg/potatoes like a great class restaurant at home and not a picture of food in sight!We went back a second time where I asked if sea bass was available as it wasn't the previous week and the guy remembered me wanting it brilliant don't miss it!

We had a very enjoyable meal here - the best we had in a week in Rethymno. The staff were extremely friendly and the whole evening was a pleasure. It's difficult to choose where to eat with so many options, but this is a great choice.
