Enchanting venu- ask for a table on the terrace!

Tucked away in the back streets we chanced upon this restaurant. A waitress took us through to the garden and told us about the building's 700 year old history. It was an absolutely stunning place, rich with 14th century charm and atmosphere with stunning pot plants and beautiful details (jasmine... read more

The place is charming, nice with a fascinating internal courtyard. Traditional local cuisine with some innovation. Good choice of wine from the island. Overall a nice dinner. Maybe a bit pretentious and overpriced compared to other places

This restaurant is so atmospheric! You must visit even if it's just for the ambience. It has a 700 year old venetian garden, indoor fountains, mosaic flooring an ancient wine cellar and more. And it was here that I finally found a Cretan red wine that I really enjoyed. I chose the seabream which was delicious. Although the fennel and... More

Wonderful place. So wanderful that a girl in the street invites you to enter and have a look at the magnificent historical building in which is located the restaurant. Then she puts the menu in your hands and half of the deed is done. Difficult to resist to this mix of pressure and attractiveness of the place. Nevertheless, the wine... More

This is an excellent choice for a romantic dinner in the old town! The building is very traditional and luxurious! Pick a table in the inner backyard and make a reservation. The menu is special and well prepared. The sommelier was very kind and her suggestions were ideal. Thank you for the lovely evening!

Everything was great about this restaurant! The food delicious, the wine (made by the owner) excellent, the service just impeccable, the place and the ambience just magic! A little pricey but it definitely worths it as it is certainly top-range in Rethymnon.

We fell in love with the setting the minute we chanced upon it - its an old monastery very close to the folk museum. The architecture is enhanced by the traditional furnishings and it is all done with an eye for detail that is truly exquisite. We booked immediately ! We chose to dine inside the building - most people... More

We chose Veneto after a recommendation we found in Dorling Kindersley travel guide that has always proved to be something to count on. This time I have to admit I was a bit disappointed though. We were three for dinner. We had a tasting course for two as entrée. This was a good opportunity to taste different things of traditional... More

What a delight to look at. Walking around looking for a restaurant and when we saw this one we just had to stop. We sat outside, but the inside area was absolutely stunning. The staff were extremely helpful, if not a bit too much but it was a lovely experience. The house wine was very good and the food was... More

We stayed at Veneto Boutique hotel and our choice of Veneto restaurant was only logical. And we didn't regret our choice - the hotel and the restaurant are a perfect match. The old Venetian style of mansion is retained in ideal condition, so that guests make a journey through time into the Venetian period. The restaurant has a charming open... More
