My husband and I have been at this restaurant a few times over the years, as it was a special meal we had approx.14 years and that we treasured. We booked a table in the courtyard, which is where we sat years ago and really looked forward to it. I cannot even begin to explain how disappointed we were. The... More

We ate in the Veneto restaurant two different nights, ordering different meals each night. We ordered a number of mezes and mains and shared them in the middle. The tastes were sensational, and you could taste the quality of the ingredients. Service was excellent, a special thank you to Natasha whose warm and friendly service completed our restaurant experience

Set either in a beautiful garden or the elegant indoor area of this medieval building, Veneto Restaurant, in the Veneto Suites Hotel, is simply first rate and a must for any serious student of Cretan food and wine. The restaurant has a sommelier, a young woman who also acts as a waiter, who is exceptionally knowledgeable about the wines of... More

Veneto restaurant is an oasis of style, calm and good dining among the clamour of good and not so good eating places in central Rethymno. Don't be put off by its double life as a boutique hotel. It does not upset the dining ambience and both food and presentation are excellent.

Like Avli, this is a destination restaurant. Superb, well priced wines and some very good, some merely good 1st, main and desert courses. Highlights: Auvergne dip, seafood saganski, octopus, apaki, lamb w/vine leaves, veal stifado, lemon tart (one of the best we've had). Prawns w/basmati rice, wild goat and sfakian desert were only OK.

The hotel/ restaurant building was formerly a monastery which adds to its charm. I ordered a spinach salad with pear, pomegranite and mushrooms - a delicious combination and one that I would not have thought of. For the main course I ate squid stuffed with cheese and vegetables followed by a delicious cheesecake. Both the food and service was excellent.... More
