Excellent Crete dishes in a cozy atmosphere....

This is a rather large restaurant, offering a good variety of traditional and contemporary Crete dishes, and the very fact that the locals---during the touristic off season---are rapidly filling this restaurant for the dinner hours prompted me to go there as well.

We were informed by locals about the traditional food here, so we gave it a try. We ordered mousaka, greek salad and chicken gyros, alla so lovely served! We really enjoyed it! We hope to see you again soon!

After a great walk in the Old City of Rethymnon, time was good for a snack. Kokkinos was recommended by locals, and they were sure right. Kokkinos has a large menu, and we ordered a little bit of everything. My personal favorite is pita gyros, and I got loads of meat with a fresh pita. 2,50 euro ... could have... More

We were visiting Rythymon and went to the market which is great. We then had lunch at the Kokkinos restaurant. It is a large restaurant with plenty of seating but it is popular with the locals and so does fill up. They are open, they say, 24 hours...not sure if that is absolute and they do take away food for... More

Compared to the many overpriced restaurants and tavernas in the area, this place has great food, great prices and a nice open plan and also nice view of the square. We ate here almost everyday of our stay at Rethymnon. The staff were quick and informative, plenty of variety on the menu with great pasta and of course great greek... More

Me & my partner ate here on recommendation of a local. I thought is was very average, my meal was mediocre, the chicken was over-cooked however my partner enjoyed her meal very much. The bread is great here. I won't be going back, my partner will so looks like we will be eating separately.

Kokkinos is a perfect spot for lunch, prices are great value for money. Friendly waiters and correct service. They have a lot of choice, but I think a lot of people come here for a good Pitta Gyros or a pizza. Mainly visited by locals. If you can get a table near the windows you have a really great view...

We enjoyed going here for a snack. We went three times while on our week holiday at Rethymnon. The first time we went the waiter was really cheery and helpful and helped us choose our food. On our second visit we were served by a young girl who was either having a bad day or she just didn't like English... More

We were in the Iroon Square area, and felt it was time for lunch. This seemed pretty busy, with a lot of customers who looked local, so we went in. My wife had a sandwich, which turned out to be a panini; pretty good for about €2.15. I had sausage, expecting to get Greek sausages. In fact, they turned out... More
