The ideal “meating” place. Alana is located at the heart of the old town, in a beautiful garden site where local residents and foreign guests harmoniously coexist. Enjoy the local quality fresh, grilled or cooked meat, delicious dishes from the Cretan cuisine and friendly service. Affiliate your dinner with a unique homemade dessert.
Alana opened in 1986 in the old town of Rethymnon on Salaminos street, the main street below the castle of Fortezza and it was one of the first taverns of the area. With 200 seats, it was the busiest part of the old town. In 2002, under new management, the space turns into a 100-seat restaurant based on good quality products, attentive service and reasonable prices.
Alana made a completely fresh start by changing the style of the restaurant, which serves unique dishes of the traditional cuisine in a relaxing environment full of flowers and plants, creating the perfect background for a dining experience based on the imaginative local cuisine and the impeccable service. The restaurant has attracted both visitors and city locals with great food, environment and hospitality of its owners.
The restaurant serves healthy Cretan and Mediterranean cuisine, always using the best local market products, always cooked well. Thus, the restaurant has been established as one of the best restaurants in the city, based on reviews of its customers. It is not a coincidence that Alana has created customers who come again and again to enjoy the special flavors of the restaurant.
