“GREAT”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2012

Great food, great People.
Spending 7 days in Rethymnon we had lunch there 6 times. One day we went to meat restaurant recomended by Zefyros's owner. We tried almost everything, and without any hesitation we can recomend all of that - especially shrimps saganaki
Hope there will be another chance to visit them.

“THE BEST RESTAURENT IN RETHYMNON”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2012

What a find. This restaurent was recommended by the receptionist at our hotel who dines there with her family. We enjoyed our first meal there so much we went back again. For 60e we had an amazing meal inc starters, main, wine, raki. The owner was not pushy and so helpful (many along the way are quite rude). On our second visit he recognised us and gave us the same lovely table over looking the water, a complimentary drink and dessert and the local tot of raki !! and the added touch of a couple of prints of the harbour. What a lovely lovely sweet man. The food was superb recommed the stuffed sole or giant king prawn 'Zefyros' style - wonderful. Great value and the house white wine was very good.

“AMAZING”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2012

Easily my favourite restuarant in Rethymnon. The setting is amazing, the staff so friendly, and the food was incredible.
We went back here again on our last night as it was our favourite restaurant of our holiday.
I literally cant rave about this place enough. I cant wait to go back one day and eat here again.

“Good food & nice owners”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2012

Went here for lunch without checking anything beforehand. Place stood out because of the non-intrusive owner and the big greek family already having lunch when we got in (thought this was a good sign!). We had a mix of typical Cretan dishes for lunch which were plentiful and tasted great, house white was a decent wine. Paying less than 30€ for this lunch together with the nice view, was good value for money to say the least. We will probably head back for dinner the coming week.

“Wonderful meal and atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2012

We had read reviews on trip advisor and went into the harbor with a general idea of the restaurants we were considering, this one among them. Upon browsing the establishments and being assaulted by most hosts, we probably would have landed here without any assistance. The owner was an unobtrusive gentlemen who pointed us to the display menu and simply said to let him know if he could help us. Then he stood quietly off in the restaurant, and didn't continue to pester us or offer us free pizza, cheeseburger or desert for our kids as most of the others did. We told him we were not ready to eat just yet, continued walking for a bit, and circled back to be welcomed as a friend.
From here the food spoke for itself and was beyond expectations. Several appetizers, a pasta for the kids to share and the special prawns Zefyros for both of us....we were in heaven. All were fresh and delicious. We received a complimentary fruit dessert and raki at the end and the kids given painted seashell gifts to remember the experience. Highly recommend for a delicious and scenic waterfront meal!
