A definite highlight - even when nearly empty!

We tried this restaurant on the spur of the moment and it was the dining highlight of our 5-day stay in Rethymnon. Ambience was great, food choice excellent and the service at table first class.

This place had a delicious starter and a great surrounding even if it was empty. Unfortunately our main courses were almost inedible. The squid was like a slimey rubbery alien coming out of some salad. The pork was rank. Wouldn't recommend given that it was the most expensive meal we had, and it was definitely the worst food we had.

Had a great dinner here 1st night, lamb stew with filo crust very tasty, also had the baked feta cheese appetizer with local Cretan herbs, tomato chutney very tasty, vegetable moussaka finished with a shot of medicine and coconut cake compliments of the house..

To Pigadi was recommended to us by a local shop owner as the place she went with her family for a nice meal. It had authentic Cretan food and seemed to have more locals than tourists. Definitely recommend it for a taste of local cuisine.

Must be one of Rhthymno's best restaurants, with service to match and reasonably priced. If you are in town - go there! you won't regret it. and the courtyard with the water feature is a nice bonus.

We were in Rethymnon off season. The restaurant was only open 3 days while we were there. In our 9 day stay we had the opportunity to have dinner 3 times. The food was excellent and the staff so helpful and friendly. The restaurant itself has wonderful old town atmosphere. I would love to return.

Our week's holiday in Rethymnon Crete was a spur of the moment thing last Autumn. I had listed a few recommended places to eat for the trip. Finding our boutique hotel was on the same tiny lane as this restaurant, we booked dinner at Pigadi for our first night. My T bone steak was the most tender I have ever... More

We have been to this restaurant many times, both in and out of season, and I am never disappointed. The choice of food is not as extensive as other 'local' restaurants but the style of cooking certainly makes up for that. The local style of food is given a modern twist and the style of service would be at home... More

This place was recommended to us by our hotel. The food was excellent, the service was very good, and the on-the-house raki was a nice touch. Great ambiance and very romantic.
