We went to this picturesque restaurant in the venetian port of Rethymnon. You sit right next to the waterfront, an utterly romantic scenery. Apparently the restaurant has been in their family for three generations, and it exudes an aura of familiarity. The service was excellent (complete with singing and a man playing a small string instrument), and the fresh seafood was even better. I would recommend this restaurant to all of our friends and family. Great price/value.

Great food but service could be more organized. But I would go back. Their bread is the BEST in town and portion so generous. Much better than other sea front taverns.

A magic place that made our stay. Friendly but respectful staff, stunningingly good honest greek food (steaks a real highlight) & excellent value. A cute family of cats too! Atmosphere is relaxed but a traditional taverna feel, beautiful buiding and perfect soft lighting & music. Enough said! We would go back just to go here again

When something is perfect - You really have a hard time finding the appropriate words to describe.

The food is superb. The atmosphere is great

We took the lobster (2 person dish) - a truly incredible pick.

A must go place in Rethymnon.
