I'm amazed that there don't seem to be any other reviews of Cul De Sac.

Located in the old town it has a really modern look to the furnishing but is still welcoming and relaxing. We called in purely by chance only planning to have a quick drink but having looked at the menu, and noting the very good prices, decided to have something to eat too. We weren't disappointed.

I had chicken salad and my better half had caesar salad. They were huge and without any question the best salads we have eaten anywhere.

If you're in the old town the place is definitely worth looking for. Meals being delivered to other tables looked equally massive.

Brilliant atmosphere with a different DJ each night. Food is excellent as well as the cocktails, thanks to Manos, the girls and management. We always looked forward to our twice daily visits whilst on holiday.
Recommend to sit on the tables outside and watch the world go by.

This is such a lovely coffee shop in Rethymno. Just by the Rimondi Fountain you can sit and people watch whilst checking your emails and putting updates on Facebook to annoy your friends back home (Or is that just what we did there?!)

It is used by the local population as well as tourists and it is busy most of the time.

It is one of the very few places I have found a decaffeinated option for most coffees. The latte is very good, my friend drank the filter coffee and kept going back for more.

One day we fancied a snack lunch so went there, not expecting a great meal but absolutely loved it. I had a baguette which was very tasty, one friend had a salad which was so large we could almost all have shared it and another friend had an omelette which she seemed to enjoy.

One night we walked towards it and they had live music of a very high standard for no extra cost, it was packed that night but the staff, who were run off their feet, were still very helpful and apologetic at how long they were taking! Needless to say we didn't mind!

If you are anywhere near Rethymno and need coffee, go there at once.

This is a great place with a nice terrace. They have variety of very nice drinks. You can also enjoy nice fresh juices and chocolate.

The working personal is also very nice. Our waitress Sophia was really kind and served us very well.

Great staff who remember you, good music and great ambience a great place to people watch and just chill for an hour or so. Can get a bit smoky, head to the back if busy.
