The restaurant is on the site where once stood a Venetian building which was linked to the residence on the south side through a doorway. It is believed that where the covered dining area stands was once a large storeroom and animal stable. The dining courtyard was indeed a courtyard and animal feeding area. In 2003 the chef and owner Harris Pavlakis decided to open the restaurant. The restaurant serves traditional local and greek dishes with local products and provides a friendly and romantic atmosphere. Our restaurant is certificated for Cretan Cuisine from The Greek Academy Of Taste and has participated in three contests of Traditional Cretan Cuisine in the last three years and has won twice

Glorious old mill house converted into restuarant. In the old town on a small side street. Lovely food, with attentive but discreet staff. Don't miss this one!

We have not eaten any poor meals while on Crete however the meal at To Pigadi was absolutely superb. The setting, in a small courtyard off the street in the old town is quirky and stylish. The welcome is typically friendly and warm. The menu...More

One of our favourite restaurants in Rethymno. The food is delicious especially the lamb chops! Lovely courtyard setting with some a fab electric mix of industrial farming equipment displayed on the walls - well worth booking a table!

The courtyard of To Pigadi is stunning with the well, large paintings and quirky objects that get you wondering (and talking). We started with the shared platter starter which was a decent size of tasty morsels. The pork and lamb mains were amazing, the octopus...More
