I really don't understand the five star reviews of this place. Foolishly relying on them, we had a dismal meal there. The tzatsiki had lumpy cucumber and no discernible garlic, and the greek salad was made from hard and bitter tomatoes, not the juicy dark...More

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.

My and my partner visited Zefyros on the final night of our holiday in Crete. Luckily, there was only one table left which we were offered. This was by the path but the waiter then moved us to a perfect waterside table shortly after another...More

If you like fresh fish, well prepared, consumed in a cosy setting as the Venetian Harbour of Rethymno is, sure go to Zefyros. Based on the good reviews here on tripadvisor, we decided to visit Zefyros. As the restaurant is based in the middle of...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
