If you like fresh fish, well prepared, consumed in a cosy setting as the Venetian Harbour of Rethymno is, sure go to Zefyros.

Based on the good reviews here on tripadvisor, we decided to visit Zefyros. As the restaurant is based in the middle of the Venation Harbour it was a little bit hard for us to get there, because of all the annoying waiters/owners of the other restaurants who tried to get us in their restaurants on a very intrusive way. Our advise: Don't go there, go to Zefyros! When we (finally) arrived at the cosy blue terrace of Zefyros, this is what we experienced:

On the menu you'll find -not suprising- manly (or only) fishdishes. As a starter we had mussels which were a good quality, well prepared. As a main menu we had the sole with shrimps chef special, which was very tasteful and fresh! The portions are good (big enough) and we found the dishes well designed. Accompanied with the white housewine our dinner was complete.

The waiter brought a dessert on the house (which is quite common in Crete) and a rakomelo (raki with honey and cinnamon). We found the rakomelo so nice that the waiter brought us another one. The second one even tasted better so asked for the bill and a bottle of rakomelo for sale/to take. The waiter wouldn't let us pay for the bottle and even refushed our tip. The bottle of rakomelo was a gift! How kind! Total price of the dinner? € 55,-. Which is in our opinion peanuts for the quality they deliver.

So, if you like the setting of the Venetion Harbour: don't let the restaurants or their waiters let me intimidate you to eat at there place but walk in a straight line to Zefyros!

We visited this restaurant yet again this year because it has been so good every other year! The staff are so friendly and couldn't be more helpful. We brought a family member this year who did not like seafood and the staff went out of their way to make a different dish to her liking. The fresh fish of the day is amazing as is their mussels and tzatziki. The view alone at night is very romantic overlooking the venetian harbour. I could not recommend this place more,

I have spent 5 days in Rethymno and have eaten calamari every single day. This is so far the best I have had. Service is excellent, view is exceptional, and I didn't the prices higher than anywhere else. Enjoy!

In the nice little harbor you can have good and fresh sea food and fish at Zefyros! The Pictures of our main dishes show the love for detail how the meals are prepared and served here. Both (salmon and sea brass) tasted delicous and the prices are for those meals and the good place in the harbor totally acceptable. If you like fish, you might love this place. I'd for sure go here again, if I have a meal again in rherymnon's harbor
