The best wine is local

Over here you shall feel how Vinice is Crete! After visiting this place I understood that the best wine is white wine and it is local.

While the ambiance of sitting on the street is something I don't get to enjoy where I come from, the enclosed courtyard at the Veneto was a much more intimate and enjoyable outdoor dining location to have a birthday celebration dinner (11 people) for my mom. Food and service were very good. I do not drink, but the wine list,... More

Pricy but definitely worth a visit:) if you want a romantic and cozy evening this is one of the best. The waiter was very professional, smiling and knew a lot about local vines.

We had two meals here. Granted, we were staying at the hotel. But, the food, nevertheless was outstanding and interesting Cretan cuisine. Worth finding and battling through the hawkers. Maria was outstanding, friendly, and informative. The place could survive anywhere: London, New York, etc

What can I say? From the beginning of the booking process to finally meeting Alexia I could tell we had made the correct choice. Very reasonable for the quality of food. We were located in the courtyard and it was just breathtaking. All the staff were very friendly and the service of food was just perfect. Out of all the... More

I was in Rethymno for 7 days last year and the second night I went to Veneto restaurant. At the beginning, the atmosphere looks amazing. The location and the decor is very beautiful. The white house wine was quite bad and the staff treated us with a relevant ignorance. Pretty much expensive ..in my staying in Rethymno, we ate in... More

I have been staying in the rooms of this establishment regularly for some time now, but it is the first time I had dinner at the Restaurant. The setting is great with good seating choises either in the alley or the venetian backyard or the inside of the building. You cannot go wrong with any of them. The wine list... More

This is a lovely restaurant in old Rethymnon which was built by the Venetians in the 1500s -- hence the restaurant's name. Our hotel recommended Veneto as excellent and a place where locals go. We were presented with a prix fixe menu for a very reasonable price for four courses, with choices for entrees and desserts. Food was excellent but... More

We ate at Veneto twice during our recent trip (based on our experience of last year) and the food was excellent (humus, feta pastry, souvlaki, apakia, penne & hounkiar) as was the red wine and treats. It's a beautiful setting with attentive staff.
