All around great meal ...pigadi salad was excellent, but hardly anything could compare to the mint and honey lambchops my husband ordered...the taste was supreme. We sat on the street since there was no more seating inside, it was cute and intimate for being outside...More

For our seventh holiday in Rethymnon we could go nowhere better than To Pigadi for our evenings. The food is amazing, service is brilliant, the staff delightful. We have never had a bad experience there, such as I read in other reviews - chaotic service?...More

Hearty traditional and interesting "creative" dishes, good service in a lovely courtyard and homey setting. Good value house wine and delicious complementary baklava at the end of the meal. Would definitely go again.

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 the golden and once the silver medal.
