The Symposium is in the heart of the center and offers many great dishes based on the Greek and Cretan Kitchechen, but each dish prepared in a new disign of the awarded cook of the house

We ate here when visiting Rethymnon last year and so decided to eat here again this year. You would think with all of the endorsements from Thompson Holidays displayed outside that the service would have been acceptable, but this was not the case. The place wasn't even full and service was very slow, so slow in fact that in the end we paid cash instead of card as we wanted to leave as soon as possible and didn't want to have to wait half an hour to go through the hassle of paying by card. The restaurant was a little to family friendly for our liking as its hard to enjoy a meal with children screaming all around you. The menu was basic with different foods on offer but not many variations of them, for example, I chose a pizza and found a limited selection of toppings. Personally, I wouldn't go back in the future or recommend to friends and family.

This restaurant was recommended to us by a local Greek and we must say it wad very nice! We ate there twice and both days the serving, food and price were/was really good. Nice surrounding, in the middle of the old town between the shops and Greek balconies but not to growded. We recommand The Cretan specialties!
