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.

I recommend this lovely restaurant. You can sit inside or outside in a covered courtyard under lemon trees. The food is plentiful and delicious. I had the set menu which consisted of 2 starters, a main and a dessert, plus wine and nibbles all for 20 euros. A plate of grapes was presented to us before the dessert and the waitress even brought us a complimentary glass of wine at the end of the meal. The waitresses were friendly, attentive and just delightful.

We ate at this restaurant recently whilst on a group archaeology tour of Western Crete. We ate in the lovely courtyard at the rear under the bitter orange and pomegranate trees. All the Cretan food was excellent but the prawns in a raki and tarragon sauce were particularly memorable - wish I had the recipe! The owner and staff were all lovely. Would definitely recommend eating here. The restaurant was booked and paid for by our tour guide so I can't comment on prices.

Beautiful restaurant. Gorgeous garden area where we sat under the lemon trees. Typically Greek. Good selection of food including set menus where you can have 4 courses and a glass of wine for only €20!!! Great way to sample traditional Greek food.
Owner Costa was a very lively and entertaining host who made you feel very welcome. Waiting staff were friendly and attentive.
A must visit if ever in Rethymno old town

This restaurant has a lovely courtyard under lemon trees. It is a very relaxing place to be, and they also serve good Greek food. The moussaka was excellent! The service is good and unhurried. A lovely place for a romantic meal or a family occasion. Recommended.
