A delightful historical restaurant in a beautiful setting in the fantastic town of Chania. The meal was devine, very reasonably priced, and the palate cleansing fruit and Raki afterwards was unexpected, much relished and appreciated.

Visited Chania whilst on holiday in Rethymnon. Went for the sunset (amazing) and didn't have much time before getting the bus back. Happened upon Ela and I wanted to sit outside but my wife noticed that inside looked nice. We went in and it took...More
