Description: ‘Lemonokipos’ (Greek word for lemon-tree garden) is a family oriented restaurant with cuisine inspired by the glorious Greek culinary tradition. Established back in 2000, the restaurant is set in a gorgeous garden located right on the central square of the picturesque old town of Rethymno, amidst important historic building monuments. The food menu is full of flavorful, sensibly priced dishes and meze that celebrate the freshest natural ingredients and locally sourced produce our region has on offer. The menu is complemented by hot beverages and refreshing cold drink and cocktail proposals as well as a selection of Greek and Cretan wines. With an elegant but friendly atmosphere ‘Lemonokipos’ is the ideal destination for each occasion.

A lovely old restaurant with a beautiful courtyard garden surrounded by lemon trees.The staff are very friendly and helpful and the food is amazing.It's more expensive than many old town restaurants but at €55 for two starters,two mains and house wine and tip,it's very reasonable considering the quality of food and surroundings.
Highly recommended.

This was our third visit to the Lemon Tree Garden and once again we had excellent food. The service was OK but had been better on our previous visits. I put this down to the fact that as it is nearing the end of the season the waiters are getting tired. We had a set summer lunch menu which included two meze starters per person followed by either pork or chicken souvalaki. The starters were interesting, well prepared and very tasty. They included beet root with orange, pistachio nuts and garlic and feta with chillis. Although the pork souvalaki was good it was nothing compared to the chicken which was full of flavour and melted in the mouth. The meal was finished off with a refreshing lemon sorbet. We will definitely have another meal here next time we are in Rethymno.

All in all a great dinner out. Fish dishes were superb. I had moussaka which was good but not much meat. Host brought us complimentary wine and lemon sorbet at the end which was delicious. All the dishes we saw coming out of the kitchen looked well presented and good portions. Would definitely recommend.
