The Restaurant was suggested by Poppy from Casa Vitae Hotel. What a recommendation! Panos the head waiter is great and very knowledgeable about his menu. We where looking for a certain item and did not see it, he asked if he could suggest an item for us instead. Best recommendation ever! He came back with a Saganaki with a fig/honey sauce that was to die for! The meal was amazing also, but if you are ever near Othonas do yourself a favor and order this appetizer. We could not get enough of it. Go and get it! I think they should send me the recipe so I can make it back here in the US.

The food was excellent and the prices was very good. Also the owner was very keen to look after you. The only problem was you are almost attacked by other restaraunts to eat in there establishments.

One eats well in Greece. One eats particularly well at Taverna Othonas. The owner, Mr. Othonas is a true professional in the trade and there a few like him. At his recommendation, we tried local chicken and lamb dishes and a salad that was second-to-none. The oregano and basil plants on the tables were a nice touch. Great food; great service; great vibe. There is nothing else to say!

We have just returned from our 14th visit to Rethymnon, over this period we have always dined at Othonas's Taverna. The meals are excellent and the choice is extensive. We always get a very warm welcome from Othonas, his wife and family and also his very friendly staff. Nothing is too much trouble and if you ask Othonas for something not on the menu he will always oblige. We highly recommend you visit Othonas and we are sure you will not be disappointed.

We visited Othonas while visiting our son and partner who live in Crete, we dined at Othonas three times and each time we had a wonderful experience. The service was excellent, on the evening before leaving we returned for our last meal of the holiday, Panos and the team made the evening exceptionally special, the service, food and value for money, the team put so much effort into making your evening special, they go the extra mile !!!!!
Thanks Panos for a special memory.
