Zefyros Family Fish Tavern

Zefyros Family Fish Tavern

A few words abou the place: 

«Since 1966 the family fish tavern Zephyros, in the Venetian harbor of Rethymno, has a constant value. Here you will meet local Rethemnians and tourists to enjoy delicious flavors at the most central point of the harbor with the most spectacular views.
The tavern was launched in the late 1950s by Achilles Tsobanakis, the grandfather of the current owner as a coffee shop for the local fishermen.
His son, Dimitris took over in 1966 and turned it into a fish tavern.
For nearly 40 years, he and his wife, Asimenia, continued to run this family fish tavern based on the value of fresh produce and with friendly service.
After his retirement in 2004, Achilleas’ son took over and continued the tradition of his father and grandfather, preserving the principles and values ​​of good business operations.
Obviously the tavern is now more modern but the quality of food and hospitality remain at the same high levels as it has always been.» (visit site: Zefyros Family Fish Tavern)

«We arrived in a Rethymnon and unusually I looked last minute in trip for the best seafood restaurant in Rethymnon and this came up as Number 1 and I can absolutely see why! When we arrived they were full so we agreed to have a drink and come back in 20 mins. Perfect table at the front with a gentle breeze looking over the delightful harbour. Wow wow wow perfect spot, great table, linen glasses etc and comfortable seats.  The food is outstanding mussels and haloumi to start with complimentary bread. Mains Zefryos prawns and rice – exquisite, spaghetti seafood and i had king prawns with spaghetti – wonderful. Everything cooked to perfection,great house wine and complimentary dessert yoghurt yum and drinks. Really wish we returned on our last night!! Thank you.»  – DiA488 (as seen on tripadvisor.com)
