Excellent lunch

Quick break from all inclusive for a wonderful lunch in a beautiful spot. Mussels and prawns were very tasty and the staff very friendly and helpful. Not pushy like all the others in the harbour and definitely worth passing them for.

Zefyros has won my daughter's heart and mine too, quite frankly. My daughter (a 4.5 yo) who is a devoted fish hater couldn't get enough of the grilled sea bream! So much so that we had to come back and dine here the day before our departure :-) The food is excellent and so fresh. So simple and yet you... More

Just went here for a fabulous lunch - we shared grilled Saganaki /mussels in wine/Greek salad and grilled sardines It was absolutely delicious and the coldest Greek beer . Don't get dragged into other pushy places around this lovely little harbour keep walking and let the food here do the talking 👍

Incredibly fresh seafood and an outstanding value made this one of the best meals during our family vacation to Crete and Santorini. In addition to great food, the staff was equally great, from attentive service to a very nice wine recommendation. Definitely a good idea to make a reservation as this restaurant is much more popular than some of the... More

We had dinner twice at Zefyros during our four day stay in Rethymno. The location is great, right in front of the Venetian harbor. The place is packed and very successful so you should be prepared for some waiting time if you haven't booked a table. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. There were only 2 people serving the... More

This restaurant was recommended to us by a local and we were not disappointed. Amazing food, portions and staff. A little more expensive than most restaurants in Greece (about 80 Euros, including drink) but simply exquisite food. I will be back next time I'm in Crete.

This restaurant was recommended to me by my taxi driver and hotel and the food didn't disappoint. It was fresh, tasty and reasonably priced. I was disappointed with the service however. When I turned up on my own, the waiter just pointed at my table so I had to move it and sit down on my own. I had to... More

The location of the restaurant is excellent on the little harbor of Rethymnon. The food was good and the service average (they were really busy when we arrived). It is not cheap but not expensive,just felt it was lacking greek character and authenticity,I think there are more local and authentic places in Rethymnon for a meal.
