Ordered way too much food here (portions are more than generous). The calamari was fresh from the dead and super tasty, the salad delicious, the meze delicious, and even the raki was drinkable. Also the staff were very accommodating, and friendly. A great place to eat, with a gorgeous outlook to boot. Highly recommended.

Nice taverna, located directly at the seafront. Looking at the menu I felt spoilt for choice, plenty of options for vegetarians and pescatarians.

This place overlooks the beach which is near the centre of Chania. It's in a district full of similar fishy restaurants. The atmosphere is glaring bright within a kind of large robust greenhouse type affair. The food was OK but the only fresh fish on offer was two farmed sea bream. Considering the place was only a third full this... More

The food we had was excellent, with my pork chop being really tender and juicy. The pannacotta and coconut truffles served with the complimentary raki were gorgeous. The service was I different however, and I almost felt like an inconvenience. It was 30mins to get our plates cleared and there were only 3 tables with customers. It may be due... More

We approached this meal full of hope and expectation after a lovely walk along the seafront from the old town. I should perhaps emphasise that this was in April, and there were few tourists around. When we sat down, only one other couple were eating.For all that, the service throughout our meal was questionable. First off, the waiter, who never... More

Large fresh Greek or seafood salad perfect for lunch with Christos as a helpful host. Good seafront location staggering distance from the beach.
