Afterwards we noticed that the place has two locations across the street, so it would have been a good choise to eat outside in the little alley. The place was full but the... More

Two blocks from our hotel on a quaint Venetian street, the food and wine at this adorable restaurant were delightful. Service was also very good.

One of the best restaurant in Chania and also in Crete. All of the cold dishes(apetitizers) were great if you like eastern Mediterranean foods and also as main dish, swordfish was great. I like all the foods and the atmosphere of the tables located outside.

Tamam is real unique restaurant which atmosphere could bring your imagination to times 1700 - 1800 in Crete . Real foodies will appreciate menu of typical Venetian Cretan cousin . Best during winter time . Fantastic owners . Try theirs bio wines recommendations.

A really good restaurant with two rooms -one traditional and the other more modern. Nice staff having respect to the customers and the needs of them. Nice food with normal prices. It is worth to taste it but you do not loose anything if you don't. The only bad thing is that the menu has not been changed for years.... More
