The restaurant’s name comes from the old days. Alana was a place where all the children of the neighborhood would gather to play. It first opened in 1986 in the old town of Rethymnon on Salaminas street, the main street below the castle of Fortezza and it was one of the first taverns in the area. With 200 seats, it was the busiest part of the old town. In 2002, under new management, space turns into a 100-seat restaurant based on high-quality products, attentive service, and good prices.

Beautiful place. Excellent menu with very friendly and attentive staff. We went as a family of seven for a birthday meal as recommended by our hotel manager. We were treated really well and got lots of extras on the house including dessert, a beautiful birthday cake and raki of course! The food was delicious and presented really well. I would highly recommend. Keep up the good work, you are doing an amazing job!
The food was the best I’ve ever tasted in my entire life, absolutely stunning! We we’re a group of 7 people and ordered 7 different main courses and every single one has been unique and so delicious.
Very good food. Special place … a little bit more extravagant then surrounding’s
