This was by far my favorite place in all of Greece!! My husband and I came to Greece on our honeymoon, and we wanted to try authentic cuisine, so we decided to walk around old town. We came across this cute restaurant, and we felt compelled to sit down.

The server was incredibly nice and very funny. We thoroughly enjoyed the food, and the owner even sat with us and had a drink!

Definitely recommend this restaurant. There were other places in the area that looked similar and had similar offerings, but this was the only place that made us feel really welcome!

Wonderful location in the old town, perfect service and genious food. S a starter we've taken ruckola salad and later I've ordered grilled see bass and my friend Sutzukakia. Both of them were delicious, prepared from fresh, local products.
The owner and the service are lovely! They made our evening really nice and remarkable. I would recommend the place to everyone and come here one more time :)

We stopped here on our day trip to Rethymno and had a fantastic lunch. To start, the saganaki was the best we’ve had in Greece. My chicken thigh souvlaki was incredibly moist and tender, seasoned perfectly. Nikos gave us fresh fruit and raki on the house to finish our meal. Wonderful experience!

The outdoors restaurant is actually a row of tables on the street covered by a green climber. Nice shaded cool break after a walk in the historic centre. The food is very good, wonderful tzatziki salad lamb chop. The fricasse was almost like mom’s. The service was amazing. Nikos is quite a character. Lively and loud, adds to the atmosphere. Sure, you can ask whatever you want about Rethymno and the global warming. Wine list is fine. Really enjoyable.

So many restaurants in Rethymno to choose from. This one I would go back to. Good service, extensive menu based on Greek cuisine including fish. Lovely flavours. Local Syrah wine from Chania was lovely. Really nice setting in a quieter side street in old town. Calmer yet still bustling. Fans for warmer evenings keep everyone cool.
