All dishes were really excellent, the service unobtrusive and friendly, the location is gorgeous. Our best dinner in Crete so far. Thank you - we hope the team will be able to maintain this exceptional quality.

We found some very fresh seafood dishes in Zefyros. Pleasantly surprised by this very traditional restaurant, the food was very good and the prices reasonable.

Staff are excellent and the food is to die for. The setting on the edge of the harbour is wonderful but I would recommend you book in advance and choose a table.

If you are visiting Rethymno, eating here is a must. The food was wonderful (specialising in fish) and the service was so friendly. All of our children really enjoyed the food, eating things they haven't before. It was a highlight of our holiday.

A great fish restaurant in Rethymnon Harbour. Food was well presented and tasted amazing. Mussels in feta and mustard sauce!!!!!!!!!!! Just have to fight your way past all the other restaurants to get to it which can be a challenge.

We read loads of positive reviews on Zefyros before realizing it was probably the best place there is for dinner in Rethymnon. This review won't be different. The food was amazing, We've never had fresher calamaris anywhere... And the sole with shrimps in a saffron...More

I think this restaurant is only open seasonally as it right on the harbour, I think they all shut for the winter

Yes there's nice streets for browsing, shopping and drinks in the same neighborhood. Rethymno is small so I'd say it's easy to walk to most things! Enjoy
