An authentic taverna serving raki, under the famous Fortezza, which, apart from the quality, savoury mezze, it offers unobstructed sea view. With colourful touches that lift your mood, 50-50 has a plethora of appetisers and mezze with meat or seafood of both traditional and modern cuisine.
The reason why it stands out is the emphasis on fresh raw ingredients (all local, Cretan) and the quality of its dishes, as you should know that whatever you choose is prepared with great care and attention to detail in the taverna’s kitchen. For example, apaki, which is used in some dishes, is made by the owners, while the smoked delicacies are prepared in the kitchen’s smokery.
Another reason that 50-50 will become your favourite spot is the aromatic rakomelo and delicious mead (among the highest quality ones that you will try in Rethymno, as they are prepared in the store as well).
