“The meaning of Cretan restaurant”
Reviewed August 8, 2013 via mobile

If you're interesting in Greek traditional food this is the best place for you. Firstly the bread is homemade and very hot. For starters I recommend salads and tzatziki, so I order this. The waiter was very friendly and kind to us. For main dishes we order some spaghetti with strips and chicken with mushrooms. Finally it serve us sweet like tiramisu,brownies and panacota for free!!!

“So very Friendly”
Reviewed July 4, 2013

We passed this Restauarant several times each time the cheeky chap outside tried to get us in and each time we said Tomorrow, he even remembered us and said I know, Tomorrow, so we decided to go in. we were not disappointed as the Meze Starter and main courses were excellent, so much so we went back again. Each time we were treated like long lost friends and all the staff were so friendly and helpful. Would have gone back again but we love to try different places. Its a great place to sit and watch everybody walk past as quite a busy street. In the winter there are only two Restaurants that stay open and I think this is one of them. Just go and enjoy the food and atmosphere, we did.

“As good as ever”
Reviewed June 30, 2013

We had visited Agrimia on a previous trip to crete in 2008 and had really enjoyed the food then so decided to give it another go in 2013. The food , including starters such as the smoked pork were excellent as was the pork Agramia in brandy and cream as were the other lamb and beef dishes all from the Cretan section of the menu. The only bad choice as such was the lamb kleftico , not because of any fault of the cooking, but simply not what was expected- a bit too plain. Service was very friendly and good at the beginning of the meal tending a little to drop off as the restaurant got busy but we were in no hurry!!. Overall a very good meal, high quality and more interesting than some of the simpler offferings available. Thoroughly reccomended.

“Stand out food”
Reviewed June 22, 2013

We were attracted to this restaurant (one among many) because a board at the front listed "chicken with figs" as a specialty. We decided to eat here and we were not sorry! The chicken with figs was delicious, very creative and very Cretan at the same time. We also had a "mountain salad" of mixed greens that was excellent. We ordered two other dishes that were also quite good, one a stuffed meat dish. The wine selection was excellent and more varied than is usual.

We returned here for dinner several times while we were in Crete. It is one of the best and most creative restaurants in Rethymnon.

“Worst tourist trap in Rethymnon”
Reviewed June 6, 2013

I'm sorry but this is the worst restaurant in Rethymnon. The service is adequate at best, the suggestions from the waiter was horrible and we even heard a waiter argue with some guests that where on their way to leave due to the poor service and food. I really try to have something good to say about this place but I fail, possible the location, in the heart of old town of Rethymnon. We ate here our last day on Crete and it was the worst meal we had all week and the most expensive.
If I am to stick to facts; traditional cretan cuisine (poorly executed), wide selection of dishes. Stay away.
