Once again we had the pleasure to visit this amazing place up in the hills above Rethymno. Food was great, the view and the surroundings is spectacular ! All prepared and served with the love and warm kindness of Maria and her wonderful crew. She gives wonderful hugs too.

We have decided to visit Thavma based on positive reviews. It was our last evening in Rethymno and we are now so glad we went there. The trip up the hill is not the easiest one but totally worth it! The food and reception are brilliant and the view is spectacular! We have tried pork kleftiko with red house wine - delicious! Too bad we were not very hungry - otherwise we would have ordered the rabbit as well. Next time! If you are in Rethymno and got tired of loud, crowded restaurants with overpriced food - go there! I mean DRIVE - it would be quite a hike.

Let me start by mentioning the car journey from Platanes. Google said 12 minutes and offered three different routes. I urge you to not follow these routes and follow the signs which are attached to various lamposts on route. We nearly came a cropper on the road, it was scarey. The route which followed the signs was better but very steep in parts.
We eventually arrived Thavma 15 minutes before sunset and WOW, the view was incredible. We ordered our food and enjoyed our starters with some homemade red wine and just stared open mouthed as the sun melted away streaking the sky with reds and golds.
The food when it came was delicious and obviously home made, each dish was a delight. The waitress and the Chef were a joy and couldn't do enough to make our visit special.
The meal was finished off with complimentary mint liqueur and a vanilla cream dessert, delicious!
The whole experience of Thavma was a delight well worth the journey.

From the moment you book Maria makes you feel welcomed. When our party of 6 arrived we were all greeted like old friends, the view takes your breath away the sunset is the most beautiful I’ve ever seen. The food is excellent my partner had the fish both times said it was perfect. We tried nearly every starter on the menu all were fabulous. The resident kittens are adorable made our little ones very happy. Don’t hesitate to book you will not be disappointed. Thank you Maria for making our holiday even more special ❤️
