“HELONA SUPER FINE RESTAURANT”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2014

I visited the Helona restaurant at date 24.06.2014. The restaurant is located in the historical Venetian Harbour in Rethymno. It is very famous for good sea food. The view out to the harbour is very fine. You are sitting very close to the water. The food and the service in the restaurant are excellent. The waiters are very friendly and take care of the customers in a very nice way. If you travel to Rethymno go to this restaurant I am sure that you will like it.

“HELONA "SEAFOOD RESTAURANT"”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2013

The restaurant is located in the romantic Venetian Harbour of Rethymno. I visited the restaurant at date 06.07.2013. I have been there many times earlier. The restaurant is very close to the water and from your table you will have a fine view out to the harbour. This Fish Restaurant has every day fresh local seafood. The food is very good and the service is excellent. They are very friendly to the customers of the restaurant. Go there it is a nice place with good atmosphere. I am sure that you will like this restaurant.

“SEAFOOD RESTAURANT”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2012

I visited the restaurant in April 2012. The restaurant is located in the middle of the old Venetian Harbour close to the water. The Helona Fish Restaurant has every day fresh local seafood. The food is good but the price level is a bit high. The service in the restaurant is good. They are very friendly to the restaurant customers. The view out to the harbour is excellent. I will go there again when I visit Rethymno.

“Terrible and very rude”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2011

When eastern European women at the front door heard we are Americans she became rude and started yelling at us
Never expected such an experience in Greece where people are generally nice and friendly
