Me and my boyfriend came here twice for dinner during our weekly stay in rethymno, and both times the food and the staff were outstanding! I can honestly say it's some of the best food iv ever eaten. Huge portion sizes, and the staff are so kind and friendly. Also, It was one of the only places I found that... More

My wife and I visited this restaurant in early October based on several recommendations by others during out stay. The recommendations are well deserved! Whilst their main selling point is the seafood the they also catered well for my wife who is not as big a fan of fish as I am! Anyone who has walked along the harbour front... More

We were reluctant to dine by the pier, because of all the bad publicity it gets. We found Zefyros on TA and were so glad we did. The service was fantastic the views amazing and the food delicious

Family owned, prepared to order delicious food. Superb service with a personal touch. This restaurant was full while the others were partially full, beautiful sea front views of the boats. All of the family works there including grandparents. Stellar wine list featuring Cretan wines.

How do you find a good restaurant in the old harbour of Rethymnon, there are so many? If you like agressive waiters shouting at you from 50 m's distance, trying to attract your attention and persuade you to have a meal in their restaurant, just pick anyone. There are lots of them in the old harbour of Rethymnon. If you... More

Excellent restaurant, owner was very pleasant. We both enjoyed the Jumbo prawns as mains. We went here due to TA reviews and the fact that the staff did not hassle us to eat there as we passed. (Other restaurants take note, people aren't stupid and are annoyed by your juvenile attempts to lure customers). Will return again!

Situated on the Venitian Harbour that is packed with similar-looking restaurants Zefyros could have been a tourist trap but was just the opposite. The setting was perfect and the friendly service plus delicious, reasonably priced food made for a memorable evening. In fact, we so enjoyed our meal that we returned on our last night, despite the wide choice of... More
