“very nice place to eat”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 May 2014

This was a very nice place to sit and eat as you are right on the edge of the sea just a few metres above. The food is very good, the only problem I have ever had was in 2012 when I ordered a T bone steak. When it came it wasn't actually a T bone, but like a chop with loads of fat, horrible. I complained and they were very good about it and said I didn't have to pay, but I did anyway. I actually mentioned it to a waiter the next day and he brought us a large pizza for free, it was lovely. We went back last year and I decided to try the steak again!! It still wasn't a T bone as we know it, but it was massively an improvement on the previous year, it was very nice as was the rest of the food. The wine was also very good as too was the price, very reasonable. All in all very good food wine and service, will return as we do every year !!

“Probably the best restaurant in Rethymno”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 October 2013

This place was made for those who can really enjoy good cuisine. Here we have found the best quality - price balance in whole Rethymno - all food we've tried in this restaurant was fresh, plentiful and delicious.The menu included not only Greek food but also many Italian dishes for those who miss them in Greece :). Also the place has the great scenic view on the sea from it's summer veranda.
And not to forget the perfect service which we enjoyed there every time - the waiters are really polite and helpful.

“The Best!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 September 2013

Vangeli prepared some wonderful dishes for us. They were all delicious. The most tender succulent octopus and calamari. The best Cretan Greek salad and absolutely the best fava I had while in Crete. The views were spectacular. It is a great experience overall and I highly recommend lunch or dinner. Get the table overlooking the sea for the best and most romantic views. Have an ouzo and Enjoy!!
