We visited on the hoof one day when feeling hungry and decided to go for the daily special at 25 euros for two. The service was prompt and obliging, no hassle, friendly, no pressure making for a relaxing and comfortable time. The meat platter cam with bread and olives Greek salad and after the meal a wee jug of raki. When it came to pay the bill, card payment was taken with no expectation of adding/ or making you feel obliged to add anything for service. Cash tip left on the table Returned once more during our week, well recommended

Our hotels offerings for our evening meal forced us to eat out most nights. We ate the sharing meat platter at Taverna Stavros on our first night out and we thought it was amazing although probably somewhat clouded by the fact until then, our food in hotel restaurant had been terrible. Bread and olives to start followed by a plate of chicken fillets, souvlaki, burger (meatball) and gyros, the yogurt stuff beginning with a “T”, pitta, chips, salad, 2x beers, house desert of Raki, Greek yogurt and biscuit for <€40. Great service. When we returned for the second time the following week and ordered the same, we were stuck in a corner bordering Sofra (the restaurant next door) by a different waiter and generally forgotten about. We didn’t even get proper plates to eat off. The plates already on the table were covered in vegetation from the overhanging vines and the waiter had blown on them as we sat down (Eeeeee - especially in the age of Covid), nobody asked how it was, it was a far less enjoyable experience and after sitting for what seemed like an age we had to actively go hunting for someone to get the bill. No house desert or Raki that people further up the restaurant were getting for us. Great once. Average second time and probably wouldn’t do a third.

Lovely location. My partner ordered a pasta dish without cheese and it came with cheese on it. By the time he got served the correct dish I had finished. The food is cheap and average at best. I agree with previous reviews about the copious amounts of oil on the food. I also agree the family who run the restaurant seem to be more concerned with getting more customers than giving the ones they've already got good service. Wouldn't really recommend. I think there are nicer places in rethymon.

This was our second choice really but we are so glad we went there. We were actually aiming for the place next door but found them pushy and we didn’t get time to properly look at the menu. The staff at Stavros were laid-back but still very helpful and informative. The menu is varied and they have lots of dishes we’d not seen anywhere else. The lamb was especially good and tasted absolutely home-made and really well flavoured. The house wine is really drinkable and the complimentary dessert and digestive much appreciated. The service was lovely throughout and I highly recommend this place.

I wish we'd read the reviews before eating here. This place was awful from start to finish. We ordered calamari to start with which wasn't fresh, was swimming in oil and was chewy. We didn't eat it but wasn't asked how was our food. I had the moussaka which was supposed to have lamb mince in it...what I received was basically vegetarian and the veg was so hard. My partner ordered a pint that when it arrived there were bits all floating to the top 🤢 We didn't eat the food, we wasn't asked if we'd enjoyed it or how was it, or even if there's anything wrong despite not eating it. To top the experience off there was another couple sat beside us who were having the same conversations about their food and smelling it when it arrived.

I went the with my girlfriend for lunch and we had a very bad one. We are vegan so we order the vegan options. The potatoes we order must have been fried with very old oil because the taste was horrible. Then we ordered spinach pie which was frozen (never seen frozen spinach pie in a Greek restaurant) My girlfriend had past with tomato that didn't have a lot of flavor and I ordered a pizza with frozen mass. Worst restaurant I have tried in Greece so far.

Taverna Stavros - is a great choice f you want to have dinner in a more traditional classic Greek place. The atmosphere is great, food is delicious, service is fast. Their wines are good too. This is a family run business, so the owner does his best to welcome all clients. As a compliment they were giving Raki and small desert for all the visitors! If you are in Rethymno, remember to visit this place :)

The food was just awful, indeed it was the worst food we had during our stay in Crete. The pasta was soaked in oil, gyros was accompanied by frozen potatoes with a spoon of tzatziki and just two slices of tomato's .... Too bad because the location looks very nice.

This is an absolute gem of a restaurant tucked away down a little side street. Although it was busy, we were lucky enough to get a table straight away. There are a wide selection of dishes on the menu to choose from and all four of us thoroughly enjoyed our choices. This was a popular place that was consistently busy and the staff worked hard to provide great service to all of their customers. This place would definitely be top of my list to visit if I ever return to Rethymnon.

What a find. Came across this restaurant whilst wondering around the old town. It was stunningly tucked away up a side street and decor was beautiful. It was very popular, especially with the locals which is always a good sign. We decided to stop for a bit of lunch and was lucky to get a table for 5. Service was excellent and very attentive and knew exactly what they were doing. We were given a selection of fresh mixed breads with olives and some whipped feta cheese whilst we waiting for our food to arrive. We ordered a selection of mixed small plates to share. The house white wine was really nice and easy on the palette. Great selection of dishes and very reasonable price and excellent value for money. They did a selection of set menus for 2 persons which i will certainly go back and try.

I am surprised that this restaurant isn't ranked higher than it is, because we had our best meal in Rethymno here, the setting, service and the food were excellent. We shared the meat meal for 2, and thought it was excellent value for money at €32 which included Gyros, Souvlaki, Chicken, Meatballs, Tzatziki, Pita Bread, Chips & Salad, plenty for the two of us and all of which were brilliant. At the end of the meal they gave us a ceramic jug which contained about 8 shots of Raki. Lovely, can not fault it in any way.

This is a fantastic place for Greek cuisine. Our waiter was very helpful and prompt. I ordered lamb and asked for it to be made spicy. He said he would ensure it was made with garlic oil which did make it taste amazing!! The children had chicken carbonara which was good too and my partner who is vegetarian had a veg pizza which was simply fantastic and super tasty. All this without costing an arm and a leg...

This place is a dive. The food was not nice and wasnt plentiful. I ordered chicken and i might as well have been eating an aul wellie. It was dreadful. My girlfriend had another chicken dish and it didnt taste like chicken. We were bitterly disappointed overall. To add to the food both servers were puffing outta butts from the nearby flower pot. That in itself was enough to turn me off the aul rubber chicken. When i complained at the end they gave us some aul dessert which was about average.

We had a nixe dinner here. The location is nice, prices are average. I agree with what others said about the fact that the person who greets guests is very concerned on getting as many guests sitted as possible and that is it. I noticed him trying to convince 2 tourists to eat there, she wanted to, but he didn't, and when they left, he gave him a very ugly look as they turned around. But that is the only downside. Our food was good and delicious. I had some lamb chops, which were some of the best I had several times I was in Greece ( sorry, I don't have a picture) My wife had the catch of the day, file. It didn't came file, which surprised us, but then someone from the staff came and fileed it in front of her. We found that funny. The fish was delicious, however.

Cold beers in the shade and quick service. Food was very mediocre though and the bread we didn’t order was billed. I know this is somewhat common practice but none of what we ordered required the bread for ”mopping” and it wasn’t even good.
