Best food in Rethymno..

There is nothing to mention than that Veneto is the best restaurant in town. I am a regular visitor and I am surprised the way menu is always transformed to an outstanding experience. This time the restaurant was about to close for wintertime, being open only for special occasions. I was lucky I... read more

Became completely hooked on this restaurant during my one week stay in Rethynmo and ate here 5 times ! The food was delicious, particularly the Moussaka, the sauce of which was made with Greek yogurt; simply the best I've tasted anywhere. I also recommend the local to the area Sfakian Pie and the Stuffed Squid. Try the Stuffed Mushroom appetizer:... More

I began to think that on Crete do not know how to cook well, but this restaurant has changed my opinion of Cretan cuisine. It's nice when you have the opportunity to taste the real cuisine of Crete. For a week in Crete, this is the first place that would like to come back. Beautiful feed, great food, nice interior... More

There are a lot of appealing restaurants in Rethymon Old Town. Veneto demonstrates the changes that have been coming about in Greece, moving towards higher standards of service and style. Veneto looks to be one of the smarter restaurants in town; with nicely set tables and a visually appealing setting, whether inside or out. We found the service to be... More

I'm surprised by the high reviews this restaurant has on Trip Adviser given our experience was well below par. The venue is fantastic but the food was the worst we had all holiday. Not "awful", just below average and not worth the price.

Like many others we had been shown around on a previous evening, been impressed and visited again to dine. It is worth having a table in the lovely courtyard, not only for the ambience but these tables avoid the nuisance of others been shown around passing your dining table every few moments. Our sea bass fillets and beef fillet were... More

Nice romantic atmosphere in the courtyard and knowledgeable wine sommelier. We stayed in the hotel and it was convenient. The service was nice but the food was just ok. I wouldn't order the snails or the goat.

I had seen this hotel - restaurant during a previous visit to Rethymnon, and I never stopped thinking about it until I managed to dine there, this summer. It is really an exquisite place to dine (the emphasis on dinning because it is so romantic at night). The food and service are also great.

Wonderful restaurant in the old town; great decor; former venetian monastery that has been rebuilt. Very good food and friendly staff. Highly recommend the stuffed mushrooms appetiser. €70 for 3 course meal for 3 including 0.5l wine and a beer plus 2l of water.
