If you want to smell the lovely fragrance of a lemon fresh off the branch you can visit the Lemonokipos. Also enjoy superb Cretan dishes - try a meze or some slow-cooked lamb under vine leaves. Or the fantastic salads. The house wine is exellent, deserts are heavenly. The staff are really nice and make sure you are having a... More

Really good food and the set menus are inexpensive. We paid 20 Euro per person for three courses including bread, olives, dried tomatoes and Greek cheese a litre of house wine (which was good). The fish set menu was 24 Euro and the main course was a whole filleted sea bass. In Uk you would be lucky to get half... More

In the middle of the old town with a very extensive menu. Food was good but not amazing. I was a bit disappointed to see a staff member smoking a cigarette sat behind the till; until that point my experience was positive.

Had a lovely meal here and their Mousaka was huge. Attractive courtyard garden with lemon trees creating a canopy although it was a little chilly when we were there in October with the breeze blowing through an opening to the back street. It is situated on a busy little shopping street. Good value and excellent service.

We have been visiting Lemonokipos for the last 13 years and it never fails to please. Over the years the waiters change but the management remain constant. An excellent menu with good food served by enough staff to keep everyone happy. The seating area in the garden is shaded by lemon and pomegranate trees and gentle background music gives a... More

Four of us had dinner here and all chose the set Cretan menu. Very good value and very substantial! House white wine very good too - a good night out in nice surroundings.

We found this restaurant by chance walking down Rethymno's old town...and we end up coming 3 nights in a row! After the first night they treat us already like we were old friends. The lemon tree garden at the back is like a peace of paradise. The food is absolutely delicious! Greek cuisine with quality ingredients at a fair price.... More

We stumbled across this little diamond whilst wandering around town. The menu is extensive and so very vegetarian friendly. We ordered a mixed sharing starter and well it was huge and so very very tasty. Highly recommend a visit
