Taverna Diporto, Rethymno, Old Town, Crete
A 500 years old building accommodates our tavern which we made with great taste and love for gastronomy in order for our quests to taste the delicious recipes of the traditional Cretan cuisine.
In the morning and afternoon you can enjoy your coffee or your snack and in the evening your drink or your cocktail.
The tavern operates since 1990 in a building of 1500, which is the age of Venetian domination, in a small alley full of nostalgic and romance, preened with pergolas and night flowers that accompany the warm atmosphere of our tavern and offer you an ideal environment.
Mrs Ioanna and her children, Alexandra and Manolis, shall welcome you with joy and serve you the flavours and dishes that are made by her who takes care of the traditional Cretan cuisine of the tavern.

Pigadi Restaurant, Rethymno Crete
In the narrow streets, in the centre of old city of Rethymno, under the castle Forteza, where the history, makes its presence intensive with a breeze that caresses you, there you will find the restaurant "The Pigadi". The restaurant is inside the yard of an old (16th century) Venetian building, which was used as a stable. From 2003 the place operates as a restaurant. The owner and chef of the restaurant Charis Pavlakis, has managed to enlist the restaurant in the 10 best of Crete according to the international tourist guide "Rough guide".
The building was completely destroyed during the Turkish rule, except from the yard and the exterior wall. There were found a well, a large stone pond, a stone lion head and various other items that date back to the 16th century. The beautiful decoration, the colourful yard and the light Greek and foreign music, in combination to the traditional Mediterranean recipes, create an idyllic atmosphere that will drift you to a trip you will want to repeat daily all the time.
