So let me start off with the fact that our dinner was very good-but my favorite part about this place was that unlike EVERY other restaurant located in this port, the staff at this restaurant did not come out and pester you to come eat at their place.

This restaurant has managed to maintain quality of service, great food and fantastic Cretan hospitality at very reasonable prices over the decades. It is in my view the best place to eat in the Venetian Harbour in Rethymnon

Please do not waste your money or time on one of the other "touristified" tavernas there. Zefyros is outstanding and never disappoint us. Well done, Achilles!
