Staff are excellent and the food is to die for. The setting on the edge of the harbour is wonderful but I would recommend you book in advance and choose a table.

I really don't understand the five star reviews of this place. Foolishly relying on them, we had a dismal meal there. The tzatsiki had lumpy cucumber and no discernible garlic, and the greek salad was made from hard and bitter tomatoes, not the juicy dark...More

If you are visiting Rethymno, eating here is a must. The food was wonderful (specialising in fish) and the service was so friendly. All of our children really enjoyed the food, eating things they haven't before. It was a highlight of our holiday.

We read loads of positive reviews on Zefyros before realizing it was probably the best place there is for dinner in Rethymnon. This review won't be different. The food was amazing, We've never had fresher calamaris anywhere... And the sole with shrimps in a saffron...More

My and my partner visited Zefyros on the final night of our holiday in Crete. Luckily, there was only one table left which we were offered. This was by the path but the waiter then moved us to a perfect waterside table shortly after another...More

We have had a house in the Rethymnon area for 12 years and have good experience with many tavernas here, but no one can match Zefyros Family Fish Taverna in the old harbour. Thanks to Achilles and his mother, here you will get the best...More

I think this restaurant is only open seasonally as it right on the harbour, I think they all shut for the winter

Yes there's nice streets for browsing, shopping and drinks in the same neighborhood. Rethymno is small so I'd say it's easy to walk to most things! Enjoy
