Good for: Romantic, Local cuisine, Special Occasion Dining
Dining options: Breakfast, After-hours, Reservations
Description: The restaurant is on the site where once stood a Venetian building which was linked to the residence on the south side through a doorway. It is believed that where the covered dining area stands was once a large storeroom and animal stable. The dining courtyard was indeed a courtyard and animal feeding area. In 2003 the chef and owner Harris Pavlakis decided to open the restaurant. The restaurant serves traditional local and greek dishes with local products and provides a friendly and romantic atmosphere. Our restaurant is certificated for Cretan Cuisine from The Greek Academy Of Taste and has won 2 gold medals one in the 9th contest of Cretan Traditional Cooking and the other in the 6th contest of Cretan Traditional Cooking.

“Great!”
Reviewed 26 April 2012

A quiet restaurant in the heart of Old Town Rethymno.
This restaurant had an excellent atmosphere - we ate there twice during a two week stay, once inside and once in the picturesque garden.
The customer service was superb and we were well looked after in every respect.
There were a variety of dishes to choose from including meat, pasta, fish and some traditional cretan cuisine.
We tried a variety of the meat dishes which were all cooked excellently and of good portion size.
The meal was finished off with a complimentary coconut cake on the second visit which was very nice!
Food was also very reasonably priced.
A great experience and highly recommended.

Excellent food. We ate in a pretty outdoor courtyard. The traditional Cretan dishes were particularly good. Would come back.

“Just Perfect”
Reviewed 27 February 2012

We were a party of 10 people, and we were all very impressed with the service and the food. Its a very nice, warm and friendly atmosphere at the Pigadi, and in particular, the lady who attended to us was so pleasant and made us all feel right at home. We all agreed the food was just yummy, and we thought very reasonable too. We will definately be returning there. Thank you for a wonderful evening :o)
