Lovely restaurant overlooking the fortessa and town. Nice romantic atmosphere. Delicious food (the rabbit I had was yumsicle) and no more expensive than the much less impressive places down by the beach. Very friendly and welcoming service. Best place we ate at during our 2 week holiday.

I must say that Castelvecchio helped us end our lovely vacation on Crete with a "boom". Lovely terrass in bloom, best service in town (where many unfortunally are un-service-minded) and great tasting food which ended with a walnut-cake baked by their aunt that made your heart sing. So, make sure you stop by when you are in Rethymnon - you... More

This nice little restaurant has a local touch. It has a great view over the city. You can get lucky, but I recommend to book a table because this place is popular.

We ate here on 13th July, when the World Cup final was showing at around 9.30 local time. Despite this the service was great, friendly and very efficient. We were seated on the small terrace which has lovely views over the old town. Food was great. Aubergine balls and battered feta to start which came with a small salad accompaniment.... More

Ambience, staff and food great. 40 euros for superb meal for two, with wine, is ridiculously cheap. Family run and all working like sticks to make a memorable dinner.

Sat down with 3 others on a very warm evening. The owner was attentive and we immediately had water and bread. Hardest part is deciding what to eat.. We ate and drank for a modest amount. Looked out across the alley to the town and enjoyed seeing the swifts flying in the late evening. Very comfy chairs - all are... More

We went here with high expectation after eating in our favorite place To Pigadi. Wasn't disappointed, lovely setting with nice views. I had the dish which was the lamb cooked in a foil parcel - the best lamb I have ever had. The waiter was a top bloke also, attentive and funny, Really enjoyed the meal. Highly recommended

Now this is a restaurant to my liking. It's off the busy streets of rethymno centre. You sit next to the famous fortezza, with a beautiful view. What makes this restaurant is the location, the staff and the food. Now let's talk about the food. The food here is something that I personally long for when I am home. I... More
