Absolutely wonderful!

It was an amazing experience! The place is beautiful, you can sit right next to the water in a small marina. The service was excellent and we've been offered something that it is not in the regular menu to fit our specific requirements. And the food... We expected a lot considering previous... read more

The first good impression about this restaurant is that no one pressured us to take a seat! Which is something that could indicate that they do not need to do so. The host was really pleasant, friendly and helpful. The restaurant is amazingly clean and well maintained. Now the food: it is superb! The fact that Greek people eat there... More

Great food, great service and beautiful ambience in the little port of Rethymno, Crete. Seafood is fresh and definitely worth trying for dinner!

The best family taverna we've ever visited in Rethymnon! In terms of big variety of different same places with see food, we were there 4 times during our vacation. Be shure that every dish that you taste will be fresh and toothsome! Taverna family stuff was very friendly and cooperative! Great hospitality, great service! I said this words when we... More

Visited the beautiful resort of Rethymnon twice in the last 3 years and have spent most of our evenings eating, drinking and laughing at the Zefyros Taverna. The food is wonderful and all freshly cooked, the price is not only good it is fantastic for the quality of food you receive, the atmosphere is amazing, sitting on the harbour surrounded... More

Family run and boy can you tell they really care about what they put on a plate. The food, service and ambiance are just perfect, you will struggle to get better cooked fish anywhere. We would love to return

Great location, great food, great wine, great friendly service and all at reasonable prices - What more can I say except - Why would you dine elsewhere?

Have been to Zefyros several times and this is the only fish restaurant I will ever recommend at the old harbour of Rethymno. I have already recommended this to several visitors of Rethymno and they were 100% satisfied. Keep on the great work guys.

Bypass the other pushy restaurants on the harbour and come to this one. We unfortunately only discovered it on our last day so regrettably did not manage to have a meal here but even though we were only having a few beers we were looked after incredibly by the owner, who is hilarious. We were given complimentary olives and bread... More
