This is a popular traditional taverna. The food is good, basic home cooking in a good atmosphere with very friendly and welcoming staff. Also excellent value.

“Do try this one”
Reviewed October 25, 2013

What a great find. We had a simple lunch of mixed hot and cold meze, with great local house wine and Raki with our complimentary dessert.
This is local food at its best in one of the narrow streets of the old town. Atmosphere was excellent and could not be more authentic.
Could not have asked more - we would have gone back if the holiday had not come to an end.
Wish we had spotted it sooner.........

“Best food we had in Rethymno”
Reviewed October 7, 2013

Gorgeous, hearty home cooked-style food. We just had to go back twice. You can see the chef really cares about the food they make; it felt like we were finally eating proper Cretan cuisine cooked with heart -unlike some other restaurants which really are just tourist traps. Prices are also "local": it cost us only 33 euros for 2 starters, 2 mains and half a litre of delicious wine -with free bread, water, as well as complimentary honey cheese pies and Greek liquor at the end of the meal! The setting is very beautiful, perfect for a romantic evening away from the hords of tourists. A real find.

Went to this restaurant twice on our week visit. Down the alleyway behind Rimondi fountain. Definately worth seeking out. Great cretan food and a very friendly owner.Very good value for money.

“Good to find :)”
Reviewed October 3, 2013

Really nice and cosy place. It is worth visiting if you are near to Rimondi Fountain. Very polite and helpful waiteress - I think she is also owner of this place. Tasty, fresh food in adequate price. We had Greek Salad and Tzatziki for breakfast.
