The traditional restaurant "Loutró" has been in business since 1998 in the village of "Loutró" in the municipality of Fres.

The tavern is located on the old Haniá-Réthimno highway close to Fres. You can reach Loutró by driving towards Fres from the junction of Ágii Pántes or from Vrísses. It is situated 25km from Haniá.

There, you will have the opportunity to try a great variety of dishes. The ingredients, such as meat, cheese products and vegetables, are supplied directly by the producers. The cooking methods and recipes are inspired by tradition. Since the restaurant is a member of the "Eleogefsíes" network, all fried dishes are similarly prepared with virgin olive oil.

Rabbit stewed with wine, local chicken cooked in tomato sauce, lamb cooked in the wood burning oven, local wine produced by the tavern’s owner, as well as a variety of exquisite local greens and salads.

The tavern was build at a site, where local women used to wash their clothes and come for water. Next to the tavern, there is a small river with flowing water all throughout the year. The whole area is covered by imposing high plane trees and other broad-leaved trees.

The tavern is very close to the picturesque villages around Fres and also allows easy access to the villages of Loutró that have lent their names to this tavern, namely Melidóni and Paidohóri. The area is also ideal for excursions to the mountain sheepfolds and forests nearby, and hiking along the river. The marvellous beaches of Georgioúpoli, Kalíves and Almirída are only a few kilometres away.

Until now the tavern has been open from mid April to mid November. From 2007 it will also operate during the winter.
