After eating here, it will be hard going back to other places to eat. The food is excellent and the service is the same. Good advice from waitors of what you need of whine and food, instead of what they might earn money on.

Fresh flowers on table, cold water, friendly host, soft music playing and a romantic atmosphere and view. And then the food... The best creamy mushrooms I ever tasted! Everything fresh and homemade. It simply was great!

This place is one of Rethymno's best restaurants! Castelvecchio has a really nice location and a cozy atmosphere. The food is delicious, especially the lamb and beef dishes. The waiters are dedicated and very service minded.
