We ate at this place three times. I found the portions generouse and all we had was nicely presented and tasted great. The dish I remember the most was the beef stifado, a type of Greek beef stew served with roasted potatoes. Most of the seats were on the veranda in the open air but there was a small room... More

This has to be our favourite restaurant in the Agia Marina area. The service is excellent, the staff are pleasant beyond belief, and the food is of the highest quality. The after dinner experience is excellent too, whether it's conversing with the staff, other customers or just people watching.

The food is fine, but the staff is not 100% taking care of you as they are used to maximize the profit. The food is without any faulr, but we prefer the restaurants more up the road.

Aletri Restaurant is a Cretan family restaurant run by the Kastrinakis family who for generations has lived on this site.

The Aletri was named by the family origins of farming and means "the plough".
Our dishes are created using fresh vegetables produced in our own gardens and extra virgin olive oil from our own olive groves. Enjoy a romantic evening, dining under the 100 years old grape vine.

Our wide menu and friendly atmosphere makes many visitors to consider us their friends and come back year after year.

A warm welcome awaits you.
