Description: The restaurant is on the site where once stood a Venetian building which was linked to the residence on the south side through a doorway. It is believed that where the covered dining area stands was once a large storeroom and animal stable. The dining courtyard was indeed a courtyard and animal feeding area. In 2003 the chef and owner Harris Pavlakis decided to open the restaurant. The restaurant serves traditional local and greek dishes with local products and provides a friendly and romantic atmosphere. Our restaurant is certificated for Cretan Cuisine from The Greek Academy Of Taste and has participated in three contests of Traditional Cretan Cuisine in the last three years and has won twice the golden and once the silver medal.

Like some other customers I felt our meal was a little rushed. We were planning on ordering a dessert but before we got the chance we were presented with our free raki and a slice of (admittedly delicious) coconut cake, something that usually happens only when you ask for the bill. Everywhere else in Rethymno it seems that they will allow you to sit endlessly with your wine before paying the bill if you want to. That said, the food was very good especially the green vegetable balls and it's one of the few places which offers a vegetarian moussaka. Personally I didn't mind the free range kitties wandering around (I didn't see any "begging for scraps") but I understand it might not be as relaxing for others who may not like cats.

Amazing place, lovely setting in a gorgeous courtyard. Food was brilliant - Credit to the Chef ; ) Traditional Greek but I would say with a twist. My favorite was the Pork with Caramel and Orange (We did eat here 3 times in 9 nights as it was soo good) The staff are excellent and Popi is a superstar, always smiling! Highly recommended

Second visit to crete ment second visit to To Pigadi. The food here is excellent and the service, allthough not as good as last year, is still very good. A great choice for a guaranteed good meal, but perhaps missing that little extra this time around.

We had dinner here on our first night in Crete. The lamb and pork were very succulent and tasty. The service was really friendly and very efficient. The ambience was very nice too. I would highly reccomend this place.
