Don't be fooled by the touristy look of the menu. Veneto is a restaurant in the middle of Rhetimno centre with 700 years of history. We were charmed inside by one of the staff and were pleasantly surprised. We were offered, outside, indoor or garden dining and all 3 looked superb. We had dinner in the garden which was cosy...

If you want to eat good food at the place with wonderful interior and good service you should visit Veneto restaurant that is located in the center of Old town. The stuff is very friendly, especially young waiter Nikola! :)

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
