Movie backdrop, excellent Fish

This is where Chaniotes (people from Chania) go to impress their foreign friends. The backdrop is breath taking. The old leather rendering district of Chania with its ruined warehouses which are slowly being restored provide the backdrop of a restaurant with tables on an urban pebble beach. You... read more

Overpriced overrated food! Calamari were not cleaned properly (the inside was nog removed) and made my boyfriend poorly, seafood pasta without any fish apart from some prawns' heads and 2 mussels without shells... The octopus was average as well as the wine. We did not touch the pasta and they still asked us 78 euros! Plenty of better alternatives around.

We had dinner here on our last night in Chania. Fresh fish! Great service! Awesome view!! Must visit. Call ahead for reservations as it gets very busy or go really early or after 10:30 in the evening.

Nice for the sunset, food not that great. But will definitely return next time in Chania to see if they have improved. Seems like a nice, local place.

A non touristic place perfect (and only) for fresh fish... The tables are almost over the river with an amazing view to Chania. Difficult to park but a must go place. The fish is very fresh and very well cooked!

We made a reservation the day before for a table of four by the sea. And we really mean by the sea since the tables are arranged along a stretch of sand right in front of the restaurant and next to the sea. An idyllic place to have dinner and relax. Being a fish lover my friend I was simply... More

We ate here three times and the fish was the best we enjoyed on Crete. Amazing beach setting with sunset view of Chania. Take your time ordering and be sure to go into the kitchen to choose your fish. A very pleasurable evening. Looking forward to going again.

This taverna was suggested to us from our hotel manager. He explained that it has very good quality food, especially sea food, but it's like a 50s movie setting. He also suggested we should book a table in advance, which was a good idea. When we called around six, all tables near the shore we already booked! They told us... More
