This restaurant is very close to Crete Palace were we stayed. The seating is outside in a casual atmosphere. They have a large veracity of food all traditional greek foods at a very reasonable price. The service is friendly and not rushed.They treat their customers to free fruit and a bottle of raki for desert. We would definitely recommend it.

Any visit to Crete would not be complete without a visit to Zisi's just outside of Rethymnon - it was so good, we had to go back for a second meal.

The servings are extremely generous and the tastes and if you are as brave as we were, the waiters recommendations are well worthwhile.

The true quality of this place is that it is mostly occupied by locals and the hospitality is outstanding.

Ate here twice with my family on holiday from the UK. All the dishes were made from good ingredients and well prepared and served -, the pork fillet and sovlaki were very good as was the service. House wine perfectly agreeable and very reasonable. Not haute cuisine but good,local food well prepared and in generous quantities. Do not fill up on the excellent fresh bread and don't overdo the starters if you want to keep your appetite for the main dishes. Price 65€ for five including four starters, five main dishes,
House wine and a tip ! Wish we could get that back home... thoroughly reccomended!

In earlier years this was the place where they sold the real Greek food, which you wil not find in touristic reastaurants. You go inside and then there is a counter and you can choose what you want to eat. My favorite bamies!!!

The quality of the food was excellent and the final bill reasonable enough. Highly recommended if you want to eat like a local
