By luck, this was an easy walk from the apartment we rented in old town. Not easy to find, but locals are happy to give directions. Beautiful quiet outdoor setting with lighted candles and old historic buildings. Carafe wine was very good. Food had a Morrocan influence with fresh ingredients. Large portions with reasonable prices. Away from the tourists.

This is definitely one of the best places to eat in Chania! We had the opportunity to eat here twice and I would recommend ordering hot and cold mezzes as you would tapas and just enjoy the beautiful flavours of the dishes.

We just picked a restaurant when we first strolled in the streets of old Chania. The food was tasty and at a fair price.

The Well of the Turk has a lovely setting and served us the best meal we had during our short break in Chania. A simple starter of bread, dip and olives followed by succulent meatballs wrapped with aubergine slices for me and kebab for Sylvi. Carafe wine was good and service excellent. A splendid restaurant we hope to return to.

The food at this restaurant is a but different with less of a Greek feel and more Moroccan. Being in a quiet side alley with lots of candles and old buildings surrounding it, the atmosphere was probably the best of all the restaurants we visited. We had two meals here - first we just had a selection of the appetisers... More

The restaurant was recommended to us by the owner of our b&b as a place locals would go for good food. Her recommendation did not disappoint! The food was outstanding and portion size was great. I had the lamb and couscous, my wife had the aubergine meatballs, my oldest had the Cretan salad, the middle had chicken and bacon kabob,... More

Eventually found this restaurant after a failed first attempt and have to say we were not dissappointed, so much so we ate there again on our last night and on both occasions found the food and atmosphere excellent. The menu had a North African/ Mediteranean feel to it totally different to the average taverna. The service was excellent with for... More

We had a very nice dinner in a nice atmosphere in the old town of Chania. Cretan dishes, with few but very tasty vegetarian and vegan selections. The service was very good and helpful.

We were the first to arrive but the last to get served, the food was unseasoned and the chicken was grisly. Basically the food was tasteless.

Finding a restaurant in Chania (pronounced Hania) is like finding hay in a hay stack; I think everyone in Chania owns a restaurant – that is to say, there are a lot. However, finding a good one is a different matter; there are hundreds of restaurants with plastic paged menus in nine languages with pictures all serving the same food... More
