“Recommended (as long as you're a cat lover!)”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2014

Like some other customers I felt our meal was a little rushed. We were planning on ordering a dessert but before we got the chance we were presented with our free raki and a slice of (admittedly delicious) coconut cake, something that usually happens only when you ask for the bill. Everywhere else in Rethymno it seems that they will allow you to sit endlessly with your wine before paying the bill if you want to. That said, the food was very good especially the green vegetable balls and it's one of the few places which offers a vegetarian moussaka. Personally I didn't mind the free range kitties wandering around (I didn't see any "begging for scraps") but I understand it might not be as relaxing for others who may not like cats.

“Highly recommended”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2014

Amazing place, lovely setting in a gorgeous courtyard. Food was brilliant - Credit to the Chef ; ) Traditional Greek but I would say with a twist. My favorite was the Pork with Caramel and Orange (We did eat here 3 times in 9 nights as it was soo good) The staff are excellent and Popi is a superstar, always smiling! Highly recommended

“Second time around”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2014

Second visit to crete ment second visit to To Pigadi. The food here is excellent and the service, allthough not as good as last year, is still very good. A great choice for a guaranteed good meal, but perhaps missing that little extra this time around.

“Excellent meats and great service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2014

We had dinner here on our first night in Crete. The lamb and pork were very succulent and tasty. The service was really friendly and very efficient. The ambience was very nice too. I would highly reccomend this place.
