“Best place in Rethymnon !!!”
Reviewed May 2, 2014 via mobile

We stayed at Veneto suites in April 2014 and happened to arrive on the day their restaurant reopened for the season. What a luck !! The setting and the food at this place are simply outstanding !!! This is the best place we've been to during our 3 weeks trip in Greece ! They have a lot of vegetarian (or vegan friendly) options, which were great for us ! The produces are high quality and meals sophisticated for Greece (a big relief of your typical oversized full of fat big Greek plate)

Highly recommend this place - if we go back to Rethymnon we will definitely go back there !

“Lovely ambience”
Reviewed April 4, 2014

Just got round to reviewing this restaurant as my trip to Crete last November was marred by an accident in my hotel. After a lot of pain, and medical bills, I'm finally back on my feet and kind of compos mentis. Veneto Restaurant is set in a spectacular location, with an amazing atmosphere which makes you feel you're soaking up the essence of Crete. I'm not easy to cater for, having allergies and being vegetarian to boot, but the staff bent over backwards to help, with delicious humous, olives, interesting salad and refreshing drinks.
Not being a one for "bar scene" I've had to put "average" mainly from lack of knowledge!

“Top Meal in Crete!!”
Reviewed October 17, 2013

Just returned from a glorious week in Crete. We ate at many restaurants, large and small, many were terrific. If you only had one meal in Crete, I would eat it at the Veneto Restaurant. These super-positive reviews are right on the mark. Food was amazing, the service fantastic, and the atmosphere without equal. I have been all over the world and this was a truly special evening. Uber romantic, this place is not easy to find. If you’re using your GPS you will have to park several blocks away and hike into the central pedestrian district of Rethymnon (which is great fun, particularly at night!). Don’t give up. You will find it eventually and you will be so glad you did. I’m very difficult to impress, and I am very impressed. Make Reservations! Well Done!

“Beautiful”
Reviewed October 2, 2013

We sat in the courtyard garden at the back and as it was quite late we had the whole thing to ourselves, it was a really pretty area and was a lovely experience to eat there.

The food was really good an we even found a nice bottle of wine which is something I struggle with in Greece, the service was also good. We got a free pudding at the end which was delicious.
