We came here a few nights during our stay in Rethymno for a couple of drinks after dinner. It is a great spot on the corner of the Rimondi Fountain, quite a busy thoroughfare so it is great to kick back and soak up the atmosphere of the old town. The staff are great - particularly the two girls shown in the photo in somebody's previous review - they have an electronic ordering system where somebody takes your order on a smartphone and this immediately goes to the bar, who make the drinks and then have a 'runner' bring it to you - very organised and everyone has a specific role to keep it moving along, I love to see such structure in places as busy as this. There is a great variety of beers, wine and cocktails, I also had a delicious ice cream one night. Prices are on par with most other bars. Not eaten the other food here but I have seen it come out and it looks fine. Keep up the good work!

The place is a bit overcrowded, tables and dishes were dirty (seriously, waiter brought us dirty plates). We didn't order any drinks (too expensive), so waiter bring us two glasses of water, and the water was disgusting, tasted like chlorine. It was probably tap water, which is not dangerous, but really not good for drinking.
On the bright side, food was good and I've cream was good too.

Plus: food, ice cream
Minus: expensive drinks, disgusting water, dirty tables and utensils

We visited this cafe a few times while on holiday and what a fab place.....service great and they sold champagne by the glass, the icing on the cake for me. When we asked 2 waitresses to take a photo of us they did with pleasure and the promptly started taking selfies which we all laughed about. Great place to sit and watch the very busy world go by

Sat down to have a quick rest from walking around Rethymnon. Great location, thought it would be a good place for a drink. Asked the waiter what beers do you have? Rudely he answered check the menu, it lists all the beers and threw the menu at us. We ordered two Amstels and we're served two warm beers with glasses that were also warm. Come on. This is such a simple request. All I can think is that this is a tourist trap relying on all the pedestrian traffic with little thought to providing any service.

Stopped off for cocktails. Great spot for people watching and great cocktails. Very central in old town. Will certainly be back.
