Lured in by the sign advertising Coffee for 2 Euros and the very comfortable looking chairs. Coffee here was cheaper than most surrounding cafes. When we asked for Coffee, the waiter replied "what sort of coffee, latte, cappuccino, filter, Nescafé? We ordered Cappuccinos and were very surprised when we still only charged 2 Euros, thinking that would just cover Nescafes.... More

We had a very enjoyable meal with excellent service and the complimentary dessert was probably the best end to a meal in our 12 nights (so far) in Crete. As we had eaten lunch rather later, we didn't have a starter which made the small dessert all the better. The restaurant is on the waterfront and it seems that when... More

Came across this restaurant on our third night being in rethymnon. The staff were great, as most of the food is fried in sunflower oil, my mum is allergic to this oil, the staff were very accommodating by making sure her meals were sunflower oil free which was fantastic. We enjoyed our meals and they were great sized portions and... More

One evening we weren't very hungry so we just ordered wine and 2 meze. One apakthia ( spicy pork) and dolomades ( stuffed vine leaves ). They were excellent and very generous portions. They didn't mind at all that we didn't want too much. With water it was under 20 euros, not bad considering you are right on the port.... More

Where do I start.... The setting and location is great, overlooking the harbour, traditional Greek feel, friendly staff. Starters, best I've had! Cretan salad and the baked Feta. I highly recommend. Mains.... Kleftiko and the Tassos mixed plate.. Both were absolutely delicious, the meat on the kleftiko just melted in your mouth. Cannot stress how good this place is if... More

This is a pleasant restaurant serving nice Greek food. We had Greek salad followed by souvlaki and our son had pasta. We had the house red wine and it was very good. The waiting staff were pleasant and helpful. We were given a complimentary dessert of panna cotta and ice cream with honey to share which just finished off the... More

We found Tassos on our second night in Rethymnon and ended up eating there almost every day. the food is brilliant and the staff are fantastic. The restaurant offers a great mix of Greek classics and grills, along with pastas and pizzas. It seems they use some pretty traditional recipes, my mom said that it tasted just like her greek...
