My resident friend is a regular so we got excellent service. Good for large groups. Good classic local cuisine. On the Main Street in old town. Highly recommended.

Last night meal in Crete and we chose well. We were welcomed warmly and given good advice on what to order. House wine was excellent and the food was the best we had in our 2 week stay. The complimentary dessert was exceptionally delicious and service superb. Good to know this restaurant is open all year too as many had... More

This is the best restaurant in Rethymno. In my two years living on Crete I've been lucky enough to have been welcomed at Taverna Othonas like a second home. There is something on the menu for everyone but be sure you don't miss out on the salads; the meat and chicken plates served with unique, homemade sauces and gourmet sides;... More

While in the midst of tourist row, this place knows how to cook. While tourist Greek cuisine is nice, it gets repetitive fast. Orthonas served food will sauces, seasonings that had me very happy. The prices were reasonable. The staff was attentive, but not intrusive. We enjoyed one of the best meals during our 10 days of eating in Crete.

Excellent at all and because the food is not simply need other recreational and pleasure this restaurant combines all that. From the decoration to the smallest detail so making memorable journey of flavors. All dishes have the supervision of the chef who is the owner at the some time! Service done with love and joy at every step! Highly recommended... More

Very productive food,especially the Dias sauce chicken but also the other traditional cretan plates of the restaurant! Perfect service from very kind waiters and of course face to face service with the owner who seems to love his job! I suggest it without any concerns to spend your time!

Initially we weren't sure about going to this but were convinced by others reviews. We ended up going twice - lunch and dinner. Dinner is definitely better! Good value for money, tasty and fresh. We had the souvlaki shared meal for 2 and it was good. Staff very efficient and friendly. We also got ouzo, raki and a mini dessert... More
