Absolutely packed, had to wait 10 mins for a table, but even being a single, they honoured the order.. Had a lovely meal and the red wines were better than most £10 bottles over the counter in England

Lively, but not too noisy, restaurant just behind Porto Veneziano hotel in the Old Town of Chania. What it lacks in views it more than makes up for with food - if you are a meat-eater. Lamb and pork dishes cooked over coals, in a...More
