Description: The restaurant is on the site where once stood a Venetian building which was linked to the residence on the south side through a doorway. It is believed that where the covered dining area stands was once a large storeroom and animal stable. The dining courtyard was indeed a courtyard and animal feeding area. In 2003 the chef and owner Harris Pavlakis decided to open the restaurant. The restaurant serves traditional local and greek dishes with local products and provides a friendly and romantic atmosphere. Our restaurant is certificated for Cretan Cuisine from The Greek Academy Of Taste and has won 2 gold medals one in the 9th contest of Cretan Traditional Cooking and the other in the 6th contest of Cretan Traditional Cooking.

“nice place with good food”
Reviewed August 26, 2013

Scenery is fab! ...but it was so far the first place in town where I was bitten by mosquitos, do something about that!
The food was good, except that ordered mushrooms we're actually cantharels... the recommended beef was very nice as well as the recommended local wine. Staff was friendly.

“Good food in a little courtyard”
Reviewed August 17, 2013

As with many of Rethymno's restaurants, this one is set in a little courtyard. The tables are not crammed in and the food was good leading to a pleasant evening.

There was nothing to complain about but also nothing to make you want to rush back. Certainly not disappointing though.

“Romantic, crowdy”
Reviewed August 16, 2013

A romantic scenery, athough very popular. Recommend to book a table in advance. Good food, ok service. Plus for great complimentary coconut cake. All in all a good place.

“Tasty, plentiful, great service and excellent value for money.”
Reviewed August 13, 2013

The selection of food is great, it is tasty, fresh and attractively presented. My wife and I ate here twice and were as impressed on both occasions. Personally I would recommend the mini-lamb burgers starter and the rabbit for main, but if not to your taste, there is a wide selection of fish, sea-food and Cretian dishes.
I would go back again tomorrow!
