Fodor's Expert Review Thalassographia

$ Rethymnon Romantic

The name means seascape, a poetic notion for this romantic gathering spot that spreads across a series of terraces wedged between the Fortessa and the azure waters below. Small plates are the order in this easy-going and relaxed place, with a strong selection of local wines and beers, and the best cocktails in town—the ideal spot for watching the sunset over the castle walls on a balmy summer evening. You can dine lightly on such delicious mezedes as hohlioi (snails fried in rosemary-infused butter), octopus, grilled sardines, rice with mussels and fresh salads.
