Castello is a fascinating restaurant located in the center of the Old Town of Rethymno. It is housed in a 16th century stone building with great Venetian architectural style. Castello opened its doors a decade ago offering a selected menu of Greek and Mediterranean cuisine focusing mostly on the creative sauces and the strong tastes that can satisfy the most demanding customer.
The harmonious blend of Greek specialties and the relaxing environment creates the perfect place to dine with your family and friends. Tomatoes with feta cheese and mint in the oven and over-baked fish with vegetables and balsamic chicken are among the best dishes served in Castello.
The dining area is divided into many areas of special appeal. The charming courtyard filled with greenery and colorful flowers has been a pleasant source of freshness. There are candle-lit tables also set on the quiet pedestrian street creating the ultimate romantic atmosphere. The restaurant offers traditional sweets and Mediterranean deserts from long forgotten recipes. Try the walnut-pie with pannacotta and Kazan Dibi, a traditional dessert from Istanbul. Castello has a spectacular wine cellar that includes the finest bottles of white and red wines as well as cold raki, their local drink. It has excellent service and a friendly environment.
