Super lecker, kretisches Essen vegan

Vegane Vorspeisenplatte & super freundlich! Schöne Lage in der Altstadt.
Wir waren 2x da und bei längerem Urlaub wäre ich auch noch öfter dagewesen. Mein kulinarisches Highlight, da die Speisen simpel, liebevoll und mega lecker waren.
Mir persönlich schmeckt griech. Reis nicht, daher hab ich die gefüllte Paprika einfach ersetzt mit einem Double einer Speise, die ich mochte ;)

Mixed vegetarian plates

We had the 6 vegetarian plates. 2 of them were good but some of them were really bitter. Also the plates were quite cold. But it was cheap, 15 euros for 2 persons.

Great value

€18 for 6 sharing plates and 500ml of wine for two people. Great value, the food was so tasty. It comes with bread which is an extra €1 charge.

Pros: Vegan set menu, Great price , Good location

Cons: Extra cost for bread , Mosquitos

Es war ok

Ich fand das Essen nicht so gut, das Fava hat nach Eigelb geschmeckt aber mir wurde versichert, dass es vegan ist.. die Atmosphäre dort ist auch nicht so schön. Würde es nicht weiter empfehlen.

Good but kind of tastless

I went there as one of the first food stop on my trip to rethymno. The staff was really nice and helpful. I tried the filled bell pepper, and to be honest I was kind of disapinted. Don't get me wrong the food was good, but a bit tastless if you ask me. It taste like it dose on any other restaurant. I also tried a bit of the greek salad and the olives was not the best.

Pros: A pretty good amount of vegetarian/vegan options.

Cons: A bit tasteless

Traditioneel Grieks restaurant met een Vegan menu

Traditional Greek restaurant with a Vegan menu

In the middle of the old town of Rythymno you can order a vegan menu of six different dishes at Nyn & Aei.
The restaurant is located in a nice street and the service is friendly. The stuffed tomato is especially tasty.

Middenin de oude stad van Rythymno kun je bij Nyn & Aei een veganistisch menu bestellen van zes verschillende gerechtjes.
Het restaurant ligt in een leuke straat en de bediening is vriendelijk. Vooral de gevulde tomaat is erg lekker.

super authentic Crete food

loved every single dish! So much flavor and so much to try from the vegan menu. You can taste the traditional dishes just in vegan. It's a bit oily but that's greek food ;-). Definitely would come again

Traditional with vegan choises

A traditional greek restaurant with vegan choises. I really liked it. Horta (green boiled) is my favorite jointly with fava. The two eaten together are very good. They also serve lattuce salade and Dako (typical dish from Crete with tomatoes olives and "crutons"). The staff very nice and friendly.

We ordered the €15 euro vegan special (wine included!) and were impressed with flavors and quantity of food. Def worth checking out, fellow budget-friendly vegans! 💕
