'Lemonokipos' (Greek word for lemon-tree garden) is a modern Greek restaurant, located in the heart of Rethymno City. The restaurant overlooks on the central Mikrasiaton Square of the picturesque old town of Rethymno and sits next to Mosque "Neratzes" and other important monuments.

Located here since 2000, it is set in a beautiful garden. With an elegant but friendly atmosphere ‘Lemonokipos’ is the ideal destination for each occasion.

The restaurant offers a menu that combines rustic Cretan and Greek flavors with more refined and sophisticated plates that pay tribute to the region’s great culinary traditions using only the best indigenous ingredients. 

The menu is complemented by a carefully curated wine list with a selection of premium and organic Greek and Cretan wines, local beers and spirits.
