Best restaurants for hubby’s 60th birthday

Hi all

We will be in Rethymnon in the first week of September to celebrate my husband’s 60th. Please could anyone recommend a special restaurant for us to have dinner on his actual birthday? A mixture of great food with a beautiful setting would be ideal. Thanks alll

Hi Mandy, Castelvecchio is my all time favourite in Rethymnon, its up beside the Fortezza and looks over the town, beautiful in the evening when the lights are starting to twinkle xx a very special, romantic venue and wonderful food too xxxx

Galera or Prima Plora which are very close to eachother, would be an excellent choice, if I were you. Right next to the sea and view of the castle of Fortezza. Prima Plora is very romantic too, and I'd suggest you book a table in both of them for a table close to the sea especially if it's on a Friday or weekend.

If I have to choose one, I would go for Prima Plora, it's classy without crazy prices.

How do you think 7 Thalasses compares with the three restaurants above?

I haven't been to 7 Thalasses, they're in a nice location and their prices are close to the others. Note that they don't have a meat choice. Castelvecchio does not match the others for location and it's not a place that Greeks go.

It looks lovely, will put it on our "to visit list". There is veal and beef on the menu although we love fish so that will be our choice.

I've never either visited 7 Thalasses either. I couldn't agree more with Caoimhin T about Castelvecchio.
