Up the top of the town by the castle entrance, views over the town. Best house red of our two weeks in Crete. Lovely local food which tasted fresh and home-cooked followed by a free slice of auntie's cake. What more could you want?!

The best meal we had by far in Rethymnon. Great choice on the menu and cooked to perfection. All of the staff were extremely friendly and even though they were very busy this did not affect their attentiveness to all of their customers. The walnut cake given as a free dessert at the end of the meal was sublime and... More

Really enjoyed the meal we had at this charming restaurant. Great views and friendly staff were matched with some of the best food we've had on our two week trip in Greece.

Charming restaurant on a quiet street in the Old Town, has a lovely terrace with views of the castle. The Kleftiko and meatball dishes were excellent! The courgette balls I had as a started were really good with some tzatsiki. There was a lovely walnut cake served complimentary at the end of our meal. We managed to get a table... More

Nice place for good food, drinks, service and atmosphare. The place is expensive compared to other restaurants (tavernas) but you pay for what you order. Remember to reserve a table. We will be back for sure ! :-)

We relied on TripAdvisor reviews and Castelvecchio exceeded our high expectations. Had no reservations and there was only one table available and by no means a bad one. But a few minutes later our host offered to move us to a table with a better view. Lovely place all around. Appetizers, entree and dessert were all excellent and service could... More

Excellent, this was one of my best experience in a restaurant. Excellent service, very friendly and warm people, very beautiful view and atmosphere, excellent food and very reasonable prizes. We get for free the water at the beginning and a sweat at the end. Highly recommended.

Well, what can i say to put this into words. Easily the best meal i had in my entire holiday to Rethymnon. I ate the Sea Bass and my Girlfriend had the Moussaka. Both meals were outstanding in flavor and presentation. The Host/Owner was a true gentleman and everything about this place oozed class. If you visit this town and... More

We selected this restaurant after walking past a few times when it was closed and liking how it looked. We were very lucky to get a table and had a beautiful view. The food was first class. We both had lamb as a main course - it fell apart with a fork and was simply beautiful. The complimentary homemade walnut... More
