Upon the re commendation of our hotel manager we visited Zefyros for some fresh fish, we dined in the evening and sat on the busy terrace, we waited to be served drinks which didn't appear for ten minutes maybe due to it being very busy. We ordered our starter I had king prawns and my partner a calamari dish, followed... More

I love this place. The food is fantastic, the king prawns Zefyros in the Ouzo and cream sauce is to die for. The seafood spaghetti is delicious, the swordfish, sweet and meaty and I have never tasted halloumi like it, so full of flavour. Then there is the view, the harbour at night is fantastic, go a little later on... More

My wife and I came here last night. The fried calamari were great (best so far in rethymno) and for main we had the grilled sea bream and fried sole. Both delicious. Everything here is so fresh, you can taste it! And the service is quick and personal too. Definitely worth an evening here, this is no tourist trap!

The amazing reviews are not wrong! We tried to eat there one night and they had to turn us away as they had no room. They weren't being rude in any way, they just clearly want to serve a smaller number of people at a time well rather than cramming people in. They were one of only about two places... More

You have arrived. Relax and order the octopus with tomato/feta sauce and enjoy the house wine. Great location in the center of the port.

I am in love with Crete. People are very kind, helpfuly, and really, really good. If You are intrested in a lovely place and try traditional foods of Crete you have to choose Achilleas, and His taverna: Zefyros. This Restaruant has a secret, which isn't a real secret: everything is fresh. And They really do their best, always. From 5... More

Had dinner here had to wait an hour for a table but was worth the wait, had nice starter and lobster spaghetti for main which was very tasty. Front of house manager was really friendly and gave us the perfect table right on the water. Very enjoyable experience fully recommend it.
