Good food and great service

I am always skeptical of restaurants located in tourist areas. That being said, I was very pleased that we stopped at the Cellar for dinner one evening. They have a prime location on the waterfront with beautiful views. The owner is charming and speaks excellent English. The food was... read more

You can eat there only food made for tourists. Not real greek dishes, but only pretends crete food. If you want to try greek dishes, don't go there.

We were after a traditional, small and authentic place to try our first mousaka. We end up choosing for the plater for 2, the meat balls were well seasoned, mousaka was delicious and the local wine recommended by the very friendly waiter was perfect for the chill afternoon. Definitely would recommend to anyone staying in the area! P.s - baklava... More

We went there a number of times during our stay as did some other visitors.

Lovely views to go with a varied menu in a number of languages with good local dishes and wines. Well worth a... More

We have recived vouchers from our hotel: 9.99eur/per. I am usually sceptic about such solutions but this time it was a great idea. Food is really nice and its impossible to leave this place hungry. Starter, main dish and dessert was delicious:) highly recommended! Service is perfect too:-)

The best food place amongst others. fish and meat were very fresh and prepared while we waited. The menu was excellent with lots of choices and as usual we were given a free pudding and fruit and a small bottle of Raki. the local wines sold there were amazing.
