This was one of our best meals of the holiday! The harbour area is known for being quite pushy, and this was the only place that didn't push us or make us feel bad when we walked past it before coming back. Some places weren't too friendly when you walked away, shouting after us etc.

We couldn't get a table where we wanted at the beginning so they sat us down with a complimentary drink until we could which was a nice touch. The service was perfect throughout, extremely friendly and attentive, but it didn't feel forced, and the food was delicious, we had lots of fresh fish - Octopus, Seafood Spaghetti and a traditional Langoustine dish which was lovely. Surprisingly a Halloumi and Tomato starter we had was one of the highlights!

At the end of the meal we got a complimentary dessert and when we'd paid, the owner called us in for a free shot with him on the way out. When we popped back in later to use the toilet, he pulled us back over for another free shot! Would highly recommend this restaurant, not because of the freebies, but just because it is doing everything right :)

This restaurant was our favourite during our recent week long stay in Rethymnon Old Town. Excellent fresh food. Very friendly knowledgeable staff and excellent views of the Venetian Harbour. Pop by in the morning to reserve a waterside table for the evening.

Located in the venetian Harbour with a lot of competition regarding fish Restaurants.

quite high price tag due to the scenic location.

Had the Fish and Seafood for 2 People, Seafood was fine, Fish tasted muddy.

Very friendly owner, made us feel welcome. Still not among the better meals we had in this area,

that's why I'm afraid I can't give more than 3 Stars.

I can only second what the other 5* Reviewers have written. Nothing was too much trouble at this family run restaurant. The fresh fish cleaned of bones (if that is a worry to you). It was cooked to perfection and artistically presented surrounded with fresh citrus fruit. The Mussels are to die for and the prawn pasta, salads and calamari were other favourites. Achilleas and staff are very attentive, but not intrusive. Experience it for yourself at this beautiful location in the old Venetian Harbour in Rethymno. Be sure to take your camera!!
