This place has a lovely location, at the top of a small hill, giving diners a fabulous view of Rethymnon at night! Service is good and friendly, and the food is excellent, particularly for meat eaters. As 2 of our party of 7 are vegetarian, we felt that the menu was a little limited for vegetarians,and the waiter was unable... More

What a find !! Get there early or you'll be waiting for a table. We saw this restaurant in the morning after leaving the Rethymnon Fort. It is near the entrance to the fort and has a lovely view over the town. It doesn't open until 6.00pm but the man cleaning the terrace , smiled and wished us a good... More

Visited Castelvecchio twice during my trip to Rethymnon in a party of seven. Both times, everyone left satisfied with both the food and the service, with two vegetarians being excellently catered for. I would definitely recommend to anyone travelling to Rethymnon to visit here.

Definitely a 'must visit' - and worth booking rather than turning up speculatively. A beautiful place to eat, off the beaten track, overlooking the valley and beside the castle walls. Service impeccable, welcoming and friendly - suggest you ask for recommendations for both food and wine. Suggest also best time to visit is as the sun is setting. Rethymnon has... More

Nice setting , high up by the fortress. Good views across the town. Service was good and food excellent - we had the special rabbit stifado and kleftico lamb cooked in foil. Both tasty although rabbit on the bone. The starter of feta cheese in batter was scrummy . Good all round experience . Families walnut cake to finish but... More

What a fantastic restaurant. Lovely location, attentive but not overbearing service, fantastic food, what more can you ask for? We were in Rethymno for a week and ate out every evening. Tried a different restaurant each evening except the last when we returned to Castelvecchio because it was our favourite by a long shot. It is worth booking by the... More

We went to dinner here twice during our holiday. The food was incredibly good and the service was very friendly and professional. View from the restaurant was amazing. The food was so good that I forgot my sunglasses from the restaurant :)

My fiance and I ate at Castelvecchio twice during our stay in Rethymnon, and both times the food, service, and atmosphere were absolutely perfect. The lamb special was the most delicious lamb I have ever had, and the french fries, feta and tomato made it the perfect combo! I would also try the ouzo and fanta. It is now one... More
