Zefyros is an old place dating back to 1966 and has long been a family fish restaurant. I liked it the most of all the restaurants at the marina in Rethymno. The food is very tasty and served quickly. They take care of the comfort and unforgettable experience of the client.

 See ….

…. It is very stylish – in turquoise and white, decorations on the walls with stylized fish, very sweet, everything is neat;

…. The toilet is extremely clean and also beautifully decorated.

Feel ….

…. Great service – polite, with attitude;

Just as described in The Experience Economy by Joseph Pine and James Gilmore, Zefyros surprised us and made our experience memorable.

You can read about this theory of the two great economists in The Experience Economy in action with the cooking class of Chef Heinz von Holzen on Bali- Part 1 and Part 2

Unlike all other restaurants, they ended up serving 2 types of tsikoudia – one sweet for the ladies and one plain for the gentlemen.

We liked the sweet one so much that we drank it. And when they saw how much we liked them, they gave us a small bottle.

If you wonder what tsikoudia are, you can read in Stavros Taverna- Greek cuisine with Cretan style in the old town of Rethymno.

…. The staff of the whole island wears masks, both inside and outside. This is a requirement for all restaurants in Greece now in the pandemic. Very unfair, given that all employees have been vaccinated.

Hear ….

…. There was a hubbub from the people around. No surf is heard, because in the port the water is quiet and calm.


Movie watching time: 1:52 min.

Smell ….

…. A magical combination of honey and cinnamon in the sweet and darker color of tsikudia from the compliment treat at the end!

Taste ….

…. Saganaki shrimp – very nice sauce, enough shrimp, oregano added;

…. The octopus is served with fava and is delicious;

…. This is the place to eat fresh fish;

…. Nice pasta with shrimp – the children wash it immediately.

So, if I have to choose which is the best restaurant to visit at the marina in Rethymno, I would say without hesitation – Zefyros.
