Like many others just arrived and had not a chance to research. A total scam joint, after all our great experiences on Crete and the islands this was really a disgusting place. Crass service, overpriced bad food. Avoid completely, just bad luck we happened in, don't make that mistake.

As others have said, we usually use TA but on this occasion didn't, we were drawn in by a pretty setting and a hard salesman who promised the earth. Meal was very poor quality, wine watered down, I complained about the quality of the meat ( just fat and grizzle) but got nothing other than a shrug, bill was extortionate... More

Everywhere we ate in Crete was very good or excellent with the exception of this establishment, which rates as about the worst restaurant I've experienced in my entire life. At least two of our party were served dishes that were different to what they claimed to be. I ordered a pork dish that arrived wrapped in aluminium foil. Upon opening... More

Nice atmosphere and location inside the old town of Chania but the food was nothing special and a bit pricy.

Worst food experience in Chania so far. It is very nice located, they had good musicians but the food was terrible. The prices are ridiculous for the fish they killed on the bbq. Tourist trap, so don't blinded by the guy who's trying to catch you on the street.

Unfortunately, despite the fact that the setting is quite pretty under a blossom tree with hanging lights and a live Cretan singer and guitarist, the food was diabolical. I'm not going to waste time explaining further, but unless this restaurant has a makeover or is taken over, do not go here. It was also our most expensive meal at over... More

Was heading for neighbor restaurant, but ended here by accident. The Chef does not have any love for the food served at this place. Meat overdone with little or nothing spices. Served with almost raw potatoes. Some of the staff smoking, very unprofessional. Overprized menu. So all in all if you want to pay too much for some poorly prepared... More

I decided to give a chance to a "touristic" restaurant to prove all known superstitions about these kind of restaurants wrong. Well... they proved all superstitions right. The food quality was minor to OK. Preheated starters, not to mention that the "famous" dish was just a mockery. Instead of fat pork pieces we got actual snitchels and got overcharged for... More
