This Taverna was great, very friendly and good looking waiters, they are brothers and were very polite and efficient. The food was fabulous and well presented. It is situated around the old walls so to get to it you travel down narrow streets, so very quaint and ancient which set the scene for the evening, Brilliant.

My husband and I were very glad we tried this place - the food was wonderful and the service was excellent: incredibly friendly and kind to our three small children! My picky 6 year old doesn't like red sauce so they went to the trouble of making him a carbonara. The ambience is delightful - I'd even like to come... More

Ate here twice during my stay in Chania. Both times the food was top notch, and the waiters attentive, quick and very nice. They made good recommendations and seemed very geniune in their hospitality. I especially liked the lamb baked with feta, tomatoes and potato (can't remember the name of the dish) ans the moussaka. And the house wine was... More

Family owned and run operation, food second to none in Crete, which is saying quite a bit. Our second year here and will be returning again soon. Greek salad and all roasted meats are wonderful.

We loved dinner here. The brothers who run the place are outgoing and hilarious, you are welcomed with complimentary ouzo and farewelled with complimentary dessert and raki, and there is an extensive menu of absolutely delicious dishes. It's very busy but all guests are served with charm and aplomb. Try to get one of the tables in the lovely lane... More

A really recommendable restaurant close to the old Harbour in Chania. The servings were extremely plentiful, the food was delicious, the waiters welcoming and helpful (we were traveling with a baby) and the atmosphere and price level were all good. The restaurant is located in a narrow historical street which was calm and relaxing compared to the harbor itself. It... More
