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

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.

Fresh, fresh ingredients, cooked superbly. Especially the calamares are worth exploring. I had mousaka and a traditional pie - they too were more than tasty.

After much searching we found the restaurant. Apparently it is a well kept secret as even the shopkeeper around the corner couldn't direct us to it. Once we found it it was worth our while. The rolled stuffed aubergine was tasty. The main dishes of veal and the seafood pasta were also well done. It is topped off with a... More

We discovered this little gem by accident on our third evening in crete. The gentleman outside the restaurant invited us (did not pressure us or harrass us which was a nice change) to view their dining area out the back! The 'garden area' is visually stunning and the perfect place to spend your evening, eating excellent food with good friends.... More
