We ordered stuffed vine leaves, stuffed peppers, saganaki, bread, and giant beans. Every item was good and we would order again! At first we were leery of this place....afraid it was "tourist" food. However, it was all delicious. Of course the location is prime, right on the harbor :) also, they are dog friendly.

If you want to combine excellent sea food, terrific view and good service this is one more fantastic restaurant at the Harbour. Take into account that the W,C is upstairs so it might be a difficulty for old people with some skeleton problem.

We tried a range of hors d'oeuvres sharing plates among ten people. We ordered mixed grill platters and fried vegetables. The service was good, the food was tasty, and presented very nicely, and the desserts with ice crream were also a nice ending for the meal. If you can get a seat by the footpath, you will have the best... More

If you are on the harbour front in Chania, trying to choose one of the many restaurants, give this one a try. We were impressed enough to return twice! We first stopped here for a beer during the day, then returned later because the atmosphere was so relaxed and friendly. It was early evening - happy hour - so the... More

Chania plainly is your normal tourist trap. Every place alleges it is the best. So how do you pick a good one? Kavouras is one. Tanja, Vladimir and Dina are superb as hosts. The BEST fresh Kalamari and fish in Crete. Interestingly they state on a menu if anything is frozen?!?! They do not overdo it on the tourist pressure.... More

Amazing service and fresh sea food. Extremely recommended!!! We ordered this sea food platter, which cost €34 and could feed at least 4 hungry lads. At the end Dina gave us this shots and desert (delicious sponge ginger cake with ice cream) on the house. Very satisfied with the experience!!!

We order sea bass, lamb shop and bolognese pasta, the fish is really fresh and we do enjoy the food. They give us free desert and small wine, and we do appreciate their service.
