Delcious tastes, great variety of dishes, friendly/english speaking service, clean and friendly atmosphere in a quite court that recalls former times. Highly recommendable for the visitors of the old city of Rethymnon.

We arrived 10 people and the table was ready for us right on time at the peak of service. The service is great and the waiters seem to enjoy the work and have Raki shots with the costumers. We all shared the dishes and everything...More

The restaurant is on the site where once stood a Venetian building which was linked to the residence on the south side through a doorway. It is believed that where the covered dining area stands was once a large storeroom and animal stable. The dining courtyard was indeed a courtyard and animal feeding area. In 2003 the chef and owner Harris Pavlakis decided to open the restaurant. The restaurant serves traditional local and greek dishes with local products and provides a friendly and romantic atmosphere. Our restaurant is certificated for Cretan Cuisine from The Greek Academy Of Taste and has participated in three contests of Traditional Cretan Cuisine in the last three years and has won twice the golden and once the silver medal.
