This place was amazing!!! We went there on our first night after a long day of travelling, the food was brilliant and staff very friendly. After trying a different place the second night and experiencing pushy staff along the road to get people in to restaurants we ended up coming back here every night (though trying different places for lunch) The staff, especially Soula were so friendly, even teaching us some greek! They recommended food which was to a very high quality, were able to have a good laugh and to check that everything was ok whilst also allowing us time without bothering us through the meal. They also provided for my allergy.
Would definitely recommend and would return!

Most of the restaurants in this part of Rethymno (Plantanias) are on the side of the road . this pretty and welcoming restaurant is set back about ou a slight incline . The welcome is very friendly the staff always seem very happy and pleased to see you .
We have just returned from Rethymno and eat here more than any other place .The food is superb, try the chicken fillet with your chioce of sauces .The Marem special sauce is to die for and the hot Mexican is not far behind. Kleftico and the Greek meatballs come well recommened . With a half litre of house red, vodka and coke for the wife basket of bread with dips,starter to share , main meal and coffeethe bill was about 21E in my eyes very good value . You will not have room for a pud but they always bring you a foc drink and a cake or tart . A very

This restaurant is rather pretty and the staff were really pleasant however the food left a lot to be desired. Our experience got off to a ropey start with some rather strange tasting dips but we put that down to personal taste. The meatballs we has a starter were very dry and a bit bland and not really that appetising compared to what we had eaten in other restaurants nearby.

It was the main course that was truly disgusting. My husband's Bekri Mezze (which was the special!) tasted of hand wash - it had a revolting, perfume like taste (and I do not mean fragrant or herby- it was soapy). I had played it safe with Moussaka and I have never had a Moussaka like it- the Bechamel sauce had the texture of mashed potato, there was hardly any meat, the aubergines were bitter and it was very salty.

The experience at the restaurant was made all the more memorable by the cats that wandered around and sat at diner's feet and tried to rub against their legs in the hope of being fed (but this would have amounted to animal cruelty). It would have been interesting to a see a cat hiccup bubbles though!

I had wonderful food in Crete but certainly not here.

A wonderful place to eat of an evening. The Marem serves wonderful food for every taste. My particular favourite was Beef Stifado - slowly cooked beef in a tomato sauce. There was a lovely atmosphere every night we went, and the staff were always friendly. The true meaning of 'Service with a smile.' There was a children's play area to keep the young ones occupied whilst a lovely fountain could memorise for hours, with it's up-lighting becoming clearer the later at night it got. All menus are also written in German and Greek. All in all, my favourite restaurant on my trip to Crete in 2009.
