Old Town in Rethymnon is very special. There are lots of restaurants and shops; yet everything is slow paced and serene.

We had a very good dinner here. They even prepared a special dish for my husband who wanted something they no longer had on the menu. The food was tasty and the wine really easy to drink.

We visited this Taverna because of it's extensive menu and beautiful location. The prices were a little bit higher than some other Taverna's in the town but the location is very nice so we gave it a go. The meat I ordered was basically just a load of fat in a very salty sauce.

The streets are cute and narrow, which I love. Also, there are some nice cool landmarks like the fountain of Rimondi, the gate to the old town, and the fortress.

There are a lot traditional things to do in Rethymno old town. You will enjoy the good life and old Venetian medieval environment. Try the local tavernas for Cretian recipes.
