A great fish restaurant in Rethymnon Harbour. Food was well presented and tasted amazing. Mussels in feta and mustard sauce!!!!!!!!!!! Just have to fight your way past all the other restaurants to get to it which can be a challenge.

We read loads of positive reviews on Zefyros before realizing it was probably the best place there is for dinner in Rethymnon. This review won't be different. The food was amazing, We've never had fresher calamaris anywhere... And the sole with shrimps in a saffron sauce was to die for. If you add that the service is at it's best and that locals know it too, (I believe we were the only tourists tonight) You'll understand why I can only recommend this restaurant.

The location is fantastic down in the old port. Great varied menu. Staff are very helpful. The food is so fresh and served with pride. This is a fish restaurant. Salad was crispy fresh and the prawns were so lovely. Big portions too. Greek yoghurt on the house as so good as was the Raki.
Lovely memories of Rethymon.

My and my partner visited Zefyros on the final night of our holiday in Crete. Luckily, there was only one table left which we were offered. This was by the path but the waiter then moved us to a perfect waterside table shortly after another table left. The menu had so many fantastic fish dishes that we we forced to ask the waiter for recommendations. He was incredibly informative and humble. Zefyros was the busiest restaurant on the seafront despite the hard sell from all other restaurants, which remained empty. Approaching Zefyros there were no such tactics employed, just a friendly smile as we passed. I would highly recommend Zefyros to anybody looking for fantastically fresh fish and a great environment. 5 stars.

We have had a house in the Rethymnon area for 12 years and have good experience with many tavernas here, but no one can match Zefyros Family Fish Taverna in the old harbour. Thanks to Achilles and his mother, here you will get the best of food, service and atmosphere you could ever want. A meal with small fish, fried squid, haloumi, garlic bread, mussels and a bottle of Retsina is a dream, and the rest of the meny have other splendid offers. And when you get a very nice dessert together with a modest bill, then life is worth living. Don`t miss this pearl when you visit Rethymno!
