We stumbled upon this place and didn't realise that it would be such a good find! The choice of ice creams is vast and we spent a long time looking at the choices as all were so tempting. What is unique about this place is the reference to Greek flavours in the choices. I would highly recommend this again and... More

Meli's in Rethymnon has the most delicious sumptuous ice cream I have ever tasted at very affordable rates. Their bitter chocolate ice cream is to die for! They also have a wonderful range of cakes and soufflés served up with the icecream, if one so prefers. Do ask the servers for their choices of combinations, and you might be in... More

Many different tastes, I am working my way through them on each visit. The staff is always nice and helpful, the location is good - you sit slowly enjoying you scoops of... More

We visited the seafront ice cream parlour on a Saturday afternoon. We both thoroughly enjoyed our choices from an extensive menu. The service was excellent, the staff were extremely helpful explaining the options and the choice of pastries and puddings on offer. Unmissable if you enjoy ice cream. We will return before we leave.

It really was magical: huge of different tastes, all the tastes we had were delicious, not too chimical tasting nor too little. Nice view from the little table on the terrasse directly on the famous fountain of Rethymnon. Service was nice too and price good. Not to be missed if on the area.

Dropped in a couple of times walking between Rethymno beach and the old town. You can sit in a shady terrace out front and have coffees, ice creams and other sweets while the beechgoers stomp up and down across the road. Very good gelato (plenty of choice), Illy coffee, and friendly service. A welcome refuge from the heat! They also... More

The bigger of the two shops is on the sea front and serves sundaes and desserts. All are excellent and very addictive! Excellent service and lovely, cool cafe.

Made with goat milk from their farms, flavour is intense (a must try: banana), quality is excellent. Best choice when there
