We went here thanks to all the excellent reviews we had already read, and we were not disappointed. The restaurant is situated in the heart of the old Turkish quarter - a warren of narrow streets and alleys, full of plants - very picturesque and atmospheric. There are two seating areas, one in front of the restaurant on a small... More

The Well of the Turk is an excellent choice for eating well in downtown, Chania. The kitchen is turkish-mediterranean, very very good! It is located in Old Town and the tables are set outside the restaurant, on the street, very nice!

We loved the excellent food, the organic, cretan wine, the sweets and drinks that were offered at the end of our dinner as well as the ... guided tour of the restaurant and the stories about this place. A very good address for Chania!

In a lovely spot awat from the crowded harbour area, this place is worth tracking down. The food was quite simply wonderful. I hestiated beacuse my partner ordered the starter of dips which seemed a bit samey to be-until they arrived! Beautifully presented and now I am never going to buy humous, beetroot dip, taziki or melazania ever again because... More

We love the food, the setting, the flowers, and the happy smiling people! It is a treasure - you arrive and its beautiful- you eat and its delicious , you pass the moment in a romantic calm setting with friendly people and you leave feeling healthy and happy. A must in Crete! We dream of going back!

This restaurant used to be impossible to eat at - you only ever seemed to find it by accident and it always seemed to be fully booked. GPS will help with the former (seriously, you'll need it) and I think there are more tables which helps the latter. Either way, the reason it was always fully booked is that it... More

We loved this restaurant. The food was amazing (unforgettable octopus salad!), the service was great, and the atmosphere was lovely. We were staying nearby, which was how we knew about it, but it is definitely worth making the effort to find it if you are in Chania.

Just away from the hustle and bustle but still in the old town, it is worth tracking down this restaurant in the evening. Setting, food and service all just right.

Very good food in general, we had meze style and we almost ordered the whole menu excellent sardines, kebab, meatballs, i would expect a more spicy lehmajoun. The wine list is small but covers the needs of a good meal and the prices are fair. The service at... More
