    Zefyros - Fish Taverna

    Fish Taverna Zefyros, Rethymnon For years the city of Rethymno, a city of indisputably interest, has been offering solid values and always new experiences. As for the taste experiences, you are offered decent quality food throughout the city. But as it is impossible to have summer holidays on a Greek island without fresh fish, we suggest you come and try the Zefyros family fish restaurant in the Venetian harbour. Here you will meet local Rethymniots and tourists alike to enjoy delicious dishes at the most central point of the Old Harbour with the most magnificent view. The history of this family taverna continues with the grandson of Achilleas, the creator of this taverna, who employs the same courtesy, hospitality, professionalism and respect for the flavours as it has always been the case.

  2. Our History

    Our History

    Fish Taverna Zefyros, Rethymnon

    Zefyros Family Fish Taverna was started in the late 1950s by the current owner's grandfather Achilleas as a kafeneion for the local fishermen. His son Dimitris took over in 1966 and turned it into a fish taverna. For almost 40 years he kept running this family fish tavern based on the values of fresh products and friendly service.

    After his retirement in 2004, his son Achilleas took over and he kept to the values his father and grandfather used to run the business. Obviously, the taverna is now looking more contemporary, but the quality of the food and the hospitality remain at the same high levels as they always were.

    When visiting Rethymnon, please come and see for yourselves.

    About Rethymnon

    Rethymnon Harbour Rethymnon Harbour Rethymnon Harbour Rethymnon Harbour Rethymnon Harbour Rethymnon Harbour

    Rethymnon is situated on the North Coast of Crete, approximately halfway between the modern day capital of the island, Heraklion, and the ancient capital of Chania. Rethymnon is the third largest city of the island and is a fascinating combination of old and new: In the old quarter, evidence of Rethymnon's Venetian and Ottoman past is all around one. The visitor may spend many happy hours meandering through the narrow maze of streets that seem a world apart from the hustle and bustle of modern-day life. On the other hand, the new town provides resident and visitor alike with all the amenities and facilities one could wish for in the 21st century.

    Rethymnon is claimed by many to be the artistic and intellectual capital of Crete and is rich in culture and history. The people of Rethymnon take great pride in all aspects of their heritage. The municipal archaeological department plays an extremely important role in helping to maintain Rethymnon's archaeological legacy. Local arts and crafts are vigorously promoted throughout the region; folk music and dance are actively encouraged amongst the young - helping to ensure that traditional customs are passed down to future generations. Rethymnon is also the seat of the University of Crete. Due in part to the thriving student population, the town has a diverse year-round programme of live entertainment and cultural activities.

    Rethymnon is graced by a long sandy beach that stretches for miles towards the east. Here one finds hotels, bars, restaurants, shops and services catering for the summer tourist. However, whenever one is in Rethymnon, at whatever time of year, there are plenty of opportunities for eating, drinking, shopping and entertainment.
