Families should know
  • Be prepared to wait for a table as it is a very popular spot for locals
  • The taverna is located on a busy street. You have to constantly supervise your children due to cars and motorbikes
  • There is no private parking. If you drive, you need to park either on the waterfront beneath the fortress of Fortezza or in one of the closest car parks and walk to the tavern.
  • You might find it annoying that some of the neighbouring restaurants are quite aggressive in their attempts to attract customers. Therefore, you will appreciate the absence of such an attitude with Othonas…
  • The taverna is located on the pedestrian street – Titou Petihaki – in the heart of the old town of Rethymno. It’s in the Vrisakia area, and you will spot it as you walk by the Square of Mikrasiaton and Minare

  • Raki and the treats offered at the end (courtesy of the restaurant) is the best ending to a wonderful meal. Othonas says: One raki per day keeps the doctor away….
