We stopped here for lunch. Nice, quiet open courtyard (further down the lane than depicted on the google map). A nice respite from all the crowds. Service was very slow, only two wait staff, but the food was freshly prepared and tasty. A couple of...More

Worst meal we had whilst in Chania!! Moussaka was luke warm and a rubbery stodgy square slapped on a plate with nothing else to go with it! Brown paper 'table mats' placed on top of a wet dirty table. Service was indifferent. We were lured...More

The food was absolutely excellent and service pleasant, so called "porter" was discreet and didn't press anyhow, thanks for that! Atmosphere was also very homey. We will certainly come back next time.

The inner courtyard is very pretty. That's the reason I ate there. I went for lunch and ordered stuffed vegetables (gemista). They were very nice, full of flavor. Unfortunately, the service was veeerryyyy slow... Maybe it was a one off.

A unique place, almost untouched from the period that was built, located in the heart of Old Town, in a yard ( covered ). Delicious food, a little bit more expensive than the other restaurants. It has live traditional music, a point that differentiates it...More
