I found Soul Cafe by chance walking around rethymnos Venetian fortress and it became everything I needed at the moment: good food in a quiet place. For the first time in Greece I was able to just sit, eat and read. I was there in winter but I was lucky enough to get there on a sunny warm day so... More

Located in one of the highest points of Rethymnon, the views from Soul Kitchen are stunning! The people running it are lovely, friendly and helpful. The interior is beautiful with vivid colours. The food I had was good if on the expensive side. On my third visit, the salad wasn't as good as previoiusly when the dressing had been more... More

Had a coffee here after a visit to the fortezza. This seems to be one of the few vegetarian restaurants in the town. It was also advertising yogo classes. The restaurant was spotlessly clean and the service friendly and efficient.

Passing by after a great visit to the fortezza veneziana I suddenly felt the need to sit and eat there because it seemed to me a wonderfully cosy place with its well-choosen furniture and warm lights. I was on my own but the very friendly owner of the place and the other people working there made me feel "at home".... More

Really interesting and fresh macrobiotic vegan food. There's a set menu - soup, a selection of individual main course dishes and then a desert. Or you can just have a couple of courses. You definitley feel like you've had a health injection after the tasty meal. You can also just call into this relaxed place for drink on the really... More

I stayed on Crete for a Ashtanga retreat..We where so lucky to have a whole week to enjoy the wonderful breakfast and amazing cooking at the Soul Kitchen. A absolutely suprising variety of vegetables, herbs, spices, quinoa dishes, salads and deserts, absolutely loved it!! The service was friendly and good. What a nice atmosphere, some kindof magic in the air... More

In our hotel we were told about this restaurant. With all the meat and fish restaurants in Greece this is something really different! We enjoyed our meal. The setting is perfect and we were lucky to be part of the latin evening with a lot of people dancing.

we didn't actually eat here. We were looking forward to having a vegetarian meal at a proper vegetarian restaurant. When we arrived at noon, the place looked closed although you could hear someone working inside. There was no sign or indication of opening hours.We called the phone numbers, but got operator recordings. We came back an hour later, and it... More

The food missed details and flavours and was served fast but not hot (maybe left overs from the day before?). If you are vegetarian, this is not anything special, and you can eat alot of really nice Greek food that is cheaper! It has been the most expensive dinner in our time in Greece, and it wasn't worth it.
