Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Thymari is a restaurant with a mission. Manos wants to take us into the real Cretan kitchen. You directly feel welcome. The very friendly approch together with the nice menu makes your diner at this place perfect. We were advised to try some dishes, more then once and the food was close to perfect, served with a smile.

PERHAPS ONE OF THE BEST!! Specifically recommended by my Airbnb host who is local and highlighted that this is a superior restaurant serving the best of Cretan food with a modern creative touch and absolutely and everything impressed me greatly including the wonderful wonderful taste of the new potatoes taste I haven't experienced for quite some time and it was extremely satisfying and everything on the menu is something you want to order !! Very impressed with the service very friendly and local and attentive prices are very reasonable for what you get here, and as I say perhaps one of the best restaurants in town

This is a restaurant located in Rethymno that nobody should miss it. Real Cretan flavors with a twist! We asked for a 5 starter dishes (chosen by the owner) and every one was exceptional. Welcome dish and the dessert on the house were delicious also. Thank you Thymari!

This is a beautiful restaurant with lovely service and delicious food. Our waiter Manos was so lovely and he explained every dish and their relevance to local cuisine. I am also vegan and he carefully explained the dishes I could have with confidence. Thank you for a wonderful experience!

As it says in its motto, it is creative Greek cuisine and just excellent. We loved it. Six of us shared ten dishes - a perfect way to enjoy the excellent cuisine offered. Very friendly personnel and very efficient. The desserts were on the house and we enjoyed every single one of them. I don’t believe there is anything on the menu I wouldn’t recommend.

This is one of my favorite restaurants in the Missiria area of Rethymno. The menu consists of mostly real Cretan dishes, created and presented more creative and of higher quality than in the average tourist restaurant. They also try to source the ingredients locally, which is a nice touch. The starters can be ordered as meze as a main dish, or when eating with a group, just ask the owner to select some. I tried a lot of them, and liked them all. The main dishes vary from quite standard (souflaki, gyros) to surprising, like the filled chicken rolls. I also like that you can swap the side dishes for something else (e.g. salad instead of potatoes). The owner and his team are very friendly. You sit outside, with enough space, and the restaurant is nice and clean. You can reserve a table if you want, but it's usually not needed, or you can wait inside. Prices are a bit higher than in the average restaurant, but it's worth it. The road next to the restaurant can be somewhat loud at times, but it doesn't bother me. Would certainly recommend it to anyone staying in Missiria, but it's also worth a trip from from the city center. It's close to the Missiria taxi stand (5 euros from Rethymno).

When I found Thymari was just round the corner from where we were staying in Rethmynon and read the excellent reviews, we had to go and check it out. Firstly, the decor is simply beautiful. Modern and contemporary but still quintessentially Greek, there is dining inside and out and it is such a calming setting. We immediately felt at home after being welcomed warmly by Manos and the team who were so attentive and friendly. Secondly, the menu is like nothing else I've seen in Greece - Greek and Cretan food with a twist. My favourite dishes were the "Dakos" salad (a traditional Cretan dish of rusk, tomatoes and cheese), the arancina "dolmadakia" (essentially the flavours of stuffed vine leaves but as arancina balls-genius!!) And the seafood orzo risotto which was one of the best things I've ever tasted. We also returned a second time as we were so impressed and I tried the seabass ceviche and the homemade ravioli with Cretan cheese, herbs and pesto which were both absolutely delicious. They offered a complimentary Dakos tasting plate on arrival, a deconstructed apple pie for dessert and some delicious homemade lemoncello which were all greatfully received and enjoyed!! This was by far my favourite place in Rethmynon, Crete and (dare I say) all of Greece!!? Very sad to say goodbye to this glorious restaurant and their wonderful staff. Please don't miss out on this if you're visiting Crete!!

Best restaurant in Rethymnon, period. There's a lot of tourist traps with high rankings but this is one I would highly recommend to everyone. We chose this restaurant as our final evening diner because the first time it was 10/10. 2nd time it was at least the same 10/10 if not more. We went for the mixed grill and beef steak and I would highly recommend it. Personnel is very polite, environment is very welcoming and romantic. Price is very realistic compare to some of the other local restaurants where it's a 5/10 tops. Enjoy your evening and I'm sure you'll eat here at least a 2nd time and be sure to spread your experience with others!

We went here twice and got delicious dishes both times. This people really know how you can make traditional dishes better by adding some twist and carefully selected ingredients. Not complicated, not too much fine-dining vibe - just great food for good price. On the service side, the experienced guy really knew his job, but he seemed to have a bit too much on his plate. So there were long waits and sometimes a bit chaotic feeling. I don't know if it was miscommunication between the staff members or just lack of experience. Hope they can fix it, because this place is really worth visiting.

Restaurant Thymari (name means ”thyme”) is a great restaurant located at the end of the Rethymno beach strip. Close to the Pearl Beach hotel. We dined there twice with a group of seven people ranging from 4 to 60-ish year olds. Had lots of items from the menu and almost everything was super delicious. From the mezes to a ”classic” mixed grill - super good! I can highly recommend this restaurant!

The food here is modern Greek cuisine prepared with fresh local ingredients and has wonderful flavours. A cut above the average family tavern, the menu has an interesting variety of vegetarian, fish and meat dishes all beautiful in presentation and delicious tasting. The service was excellent by any standard.

The experience we had was superb. All of us really enjoyed teh evening and we had ended up over ordering and had some food left to take home and have for lunch the next day The approach to the food is to modernise the presentation of otherwise familiar dishes An "amuse bouche" of deconstructed Cretan salad, had the trational rusk crumbled across the plate with delicious tomatoes and herbs on one side and olives with a herby cheese mousse on the other A spinach pie came as layers of grilled bread with spinach fillings, A starter of smoked pork came with wild mushrooms and a thick, dark honeyed sauce that was smokey and sweet at the same time Some dishes did not work so well a zucchini cake - was a disk of fried zucchini with little dabs of youghurty sauce, not as good as te traditional fried zucchini balld The loacl sald was excellent but a 3 bolied bean salad lacked punch and seemed to be dominiated by a quinua like grain. We had 2 pasta dishes one ravioli like with fresh herbs and the other with a chees and ham sauce - bot well liked Roast potatoes came on a bed of thick white sauce that detracted from teh otherwise excellent potatoes The lamb we ordered was beuatifully cooked and lemony. The pork was excellent, reminiscent of Chinese belly pork, glistening and crisp on top and unctiously soft underneath The local wines on offer were excellent and we finished with a couple of deserts - a sort of deconstructed fruit crumble with the Cretan rusk providing teh crumble and two different flavour ice creams with limoncello to wash it down with

We had very fond memories of this restaurants previous life as To Pareaki when we were here in 2019 but were keen to try its new iteration when we realised the same guy was in charge. It was wonderful. We had a huge selection of ‘starters’ to share for dinner, delicious organic Greek wines and it was all delicious.

The food here is absolutely delicious, a little bit different to the ‘traditional’ Cretan menu’s with a modern twist. We were lucky to be staying around the corner from this restaurant. I would highly recommend a visit, friendly staff & good value for money.
