Heard a lot of good things about this place on trip advisor so I was a little disappointed with the first two dishes we had as they were average. The last dish we had was the meatballs though and that's why I gave this place 4 stars, they were amazing and so was the setting. The service was good as... More

This is a little tricky to find, but well worth it - this lovely little place, with outside seating, served some of the best food we had all week in Crete - not strictly Greek, but Mediterranean in the larger sense. Creative, flavorful, great service, fun atmosphere - a delightful evening. We were there as part of a group, and... More

Very nice and quiet restaurant with excellent food and excellent service. Nice music while eating. Nice to sit outside and interesting with the actual well inside the building. Really great to sit there and enjoy the good food!

Situated in part of the old town called Splanzia, this can be a little tricky to find as it is down a small laneway off a main street. We went there at 10pm on a Friday evening and the place was still full. Didn't have to wait long though before a table came up. We ordered lamb with preserved lemons,... More

I travel a lot but I write a little, this time I had to share the experience of a great food and an unforgettable place! Had to find the road first but the wonderful scene and the restauranr were the best payback.

Amazing place! Friendly staff, great service, such delicious food, innovative menu and plating, romantic setting in the old town in the evening, great value and wonderful mix of Cretan, Turkish and Moroccan flavours. Also loved that it was not on the loud busy streets. I discovered this on my only night in Chania (and last night) but wish I could... More

I visit the site a lot but is the first time I do a review. The reason is simple, I had best time in Chania and one of the most tasteful dinners in the Well of the Turk. Small inconvenience the delay but it is quite reasonable since it was full!

Highly recommended. Food was fantastic, the service was quick, efficient and friendly. They also do not try to sting you with "free" extras. Lovely atmosphere and fantastic food. Even the house wine was good!

A friend from Chania suggested this restaurant telling us its one of the best in town. And she was right! We were a group of 12 people and we ordered lots of different appetisers and main dishes. Everything was tasty! Some of the people had house wine and they said it was warm and not very nice. We sat outside... More
