Another year and another visit to the beautifully located Zefyros restaurant. We had made a reservation via the restaurants website and I would strongly suggest making a booking as the taverna can get very busy. Sitting at the waterside as dusk turns to night watching...More

The waiter was nice, but even though I have asked for drinks before food I got it long after (there were not many more customers). We were a group of 5 adults and two small children. May 2018. Prices... not very high, but not cheap...More

Mussels with white wine for starters, delicious; then we got the spaghetti with langoustine, which was very good, and the filled fish specialty with rice (don’t remember the name!), the best. The service was really friendly and well done. Definitely would come back someday.

If you are in Rethymno for a few days you can book when you arrive, they will reserve a table for you in front of the water, it’s fab !

I think this restaurant is only open seasonally as it right on the harbour, I think they all shut for the winter

Yes there's nice streets for browsing, shopping and drinks in the same neighborhood. Rethymno is small so I'd say it's easy to walk to most things! Enjoy
