Probably some of the best Greek food I have ever tasted. Tastes so fresh! Greek salad is awesome! Would definitely recommend this restaurant for both lunch and evening meal. Brilliant!

Everything freshly sourced and made/cooked. Grilled octopus was fantastic (best in all of Crete IMHO) - all other starters were great including fried small fish (anchovies), grilled sardines, cheese saganaki, stuffed vine leaves, meatballs, Greek salad, calamari.

Mains ordered were pork and chicken skewers, ouzo flamed shrimps with rice. The sauce for the prawns was actually lobster bisque - so good.

Owner manager restaurant. Excellent value for money, honest and wonderful suggestions. Ask them to recommend wine - Cretan and Greek vintages not even in menu but really nice. We loved the roses - sparkling and champagne style.

Found this taverna by chance. Lovely setting, caring and friendly staff. The food is freshly cooked, very tasty with generous portions. All served with, courtesy a warm welcome and a smile. Have since spent several lunchtimes/afternoons here. House wine is really good if on a budget. Take the time to visit, sure you will not be disappointed. A real gem

This dinner was one of the best during my stay in rethymnos. For starters we had zucchini balls, we got four large balls to share. Try theese! They were so delicious filled with feta. For main I had seafood risotto: the shrimps were perfectly cooked, not rubbery at all. The mussels were the best mussels i ever ate, so soft and flavourful. The squid was perfect too. Afterwards they gave us two shots of raki and chocolate balls. The prices were goof aswell. A two course dinner for 38 euros(beer and soft drink included).If your in rethymnos you should definentely give this place a visit!
