Loutro is certainly of the beaten track, and the Blue House is a popular place for those who stop off on the ferry or a walking trail. The food is traditional Cretan Cuisine, excellent value for money, tasty and generous portions. The owner is charismatic and helpful, making you feel most welcome. Rooms are basic, but with super views -... More

We first visited Crete over 20 years ago and were entranced by Loutro. Several visits, and years, later it still delivers. The Blue House has an idyllic location on the waterfront and the fish soup is as good as ever. Cannot remember much else due to the massive carafe of (free) Raki we were given!

Because of the beauty of Loutro we decided to stay there spontanous. Luckily we got the last free room at the Blue House. The room was simple, but spacious with a big terrace and very clean. We had a very stunning view over the whole bay. For dinner we went to the restaurant and had a nice table next to... More

there's no point in serving 30 different dishes when you can't actually do it ,some of the food was definitely made the previous day and if you are greek you can tell that from the first bite .sad because the place is clean and the family that runs it is so nice but they need to rethink the way they...

You really are a captive audience when in Loutro so it's good that there is a reasonable choice of retaurants. We ate here twice, the food is on display so you can pick what you would like. The owner speaks very good English so can help with food dislikes/allergies etc. As always with Cretan food, the one disappointment for me... More

We not only ate there but stayed in the hotel for 3 nights. The restaurant is traditional clean and spacious the food is also traditional and plentiful you would never go hungry and if they haven't got it they will recommend something just as good. I can honestly say Loutro is a jewel that is hidden away and is a... More

We ate here because of the excellent reviews so expected a good meal. The service was frantic and we felt uneasy throughout the meal. We had to send one fish back because it was cold in the middle but the rest of the meals (goat and swordfish) was of adequate standard. For the price it was ok with complementary dessert... More
