We visited Sympligades several times during our stay in Rethymno. The place is located in the old town. What attracted us to it at first was the fact that is frequented by Greeks, always a good sign that a restaurant is not a tourist trap....More

A lot of different local dishes to taste from every time you visit the place. Right in the center of the old town but without having tosit on one another like the surrounding restaurants

In the beautiful alleys of the old Rethymno town you will find Sympligades! In contrast with the Greek mythology, you will stop here by your own will! Our gastronomy, the friendly and warm decoration, the live music nights, the magnificent view to the old minaret and our hospitality will be the reasons that you will want to return! After your first visit, "Sympligades will always be open"!
