We really enjoyed this restaurant. We were looking for something different, so we asked the server and he gave us a menu he keeps for the locals. Do yourself a favour and ask the "other menu". We ordered what our server recommend and we were not disappointed We ordered stuffed peppers (amazing), meatballs and tzatziki. All were wonderful.

We had dinner here on spec and we're not disappointed. We were lured in by the multi course fish menu for 2 @ €25. It was delicious and as there were four of us we chose some extra starters to accompany the seafood. All very good and good value. House wine very good too.

Typical Cretan Kitchen in a very quiet region. Better than other restaurants at the harbor. Locals also eat here.

We found Kapilio by chance while wandering round Rethymnon old town and decided to give the restaurant a try as it listed vegetarian options alongside meat dishes - an important issue for us [1 vege and 1 meat eater]. The staff were friendly, approachable and helpful. Throughout the meal service was attentive, but not overly so. The food selection was... More

Service was okay. Food took quite long even but the place was not full of that didn't explain the wait. Wife had lamb in yoghurt sauce which again was just OK but nothing more.
