Excellent food, lovely staff. They have a great selection of Cretian wines. I can recommend "Femina"-white wine. The only thing i didn't like that much was the boureki, but everything else was perfect.

Don't know why people don't like sitting inside here - the history of the place is part of its unique charm. We have sat in both times we've been here. Food excellent - gigantes in a garlic sauce, imam bayaldi and roast peppers with yogurt/paprika sauce all excellent. They tend to get very busy and the service can get a... More

We were unlucky to sit inside and it was quite noisy, so better to wait for the table outside! But really good food, the best olives we tried as a starter, great tzatziki, and amazing lamb in aubergine puree! Only the free dessert wasnt that great like in the other places, but is for free, so will not take a... More

We're not sure why people want to sit out in the street (when there are nicer outdoor venues around town) particularly when the inside of the hammam is so full of character! We had a very good meal, the environment was a special treat - no other venue in Chania is like it! Staff were very friendly, helpful, and the... More

This is the first time we have ever been able to get an outdoor table. They are always busy. The stuffed peppers and tomatoes could almost turn me into a vegetarian. Their fava is delightful as is the bottled Cretan wine they have .by the glass. They can sometimes be a victim of their own popularity because at peak time... More

We went to Istanbul this spring and felt in love with turkish food. The tastes are unique and powerful. Therefore it was fun to find a good turkish restaurant in Chaniá. The food was excellent and the place in an old turkish bath was also nice. However, it's a popular place and the waiters had a lot to do and... More

We visited Tamam a warm late summer night for a better meal. We like the food, the charm and the people who work here. Here you will not have the somewhat exaggerated "good" service, but more than enough good service and charm for a great meal. One might say that here it is some-more rock & roll over the service,...

Great location, sat looking on to the harbour and alleys, ordered so much food, the peppers and vine leaves are a must! But all of it was so good!

Not quite sure how this isn't at the top of TripAdvisor's Best of Chania: I've come to this restaurant 4 times now over the past 10 years and it's only gotten better and bigger. Originally set into an old hamam (turkish bath house) it's cool and romantic in the summer, with additional seating along the narrow picturesque alley (sokakia) and... More
