Great traditional Cretan foor

Great place for traditional Cretan Food, in the old farbor of the city of Chania. Very good prices. Public parking just in front of the restaurant. One of the best choices for food inside the city of Chania, both for tourist and for local residents.

The bread is freshly made. It's like bread porn. Don't know how else to say it. We've dined there several times with friends and have never experienced a bad meal. It is always always always delicious. AND the staff is lovely. It's a Chania favorite- and a Cretan treasure.

Though my Husband and I were there this past Oct, we still think of this restaurant, and wished they had a location in Chicago. One of the best meals we had in Chania. Loved everything, the home made bread, to the dessert. It was simply fantastic. If we ever go back, and I hope we will, this restaurant will see... More

We ate here twice. Better at lunch as with most restaurants. Chefs must get tired. Loved the roast suckling pig, which they only prepare on holidays and Sundays. Their grilled lamb chops were more ordinary though tasty. Good goat dishes; wonderful grilled Cretan sausages. Reservations might be necessary in summer, but not in winter. Avoid lamb livers unless you love... More

Packed with local families, we knew we found the right spot to have traditional Cretan cuisine. The grilled mushrooms was delicious! We were served a complimentary plate of sweets at the end of the meal - which was like a dough fritter with honey and sesame seeds. A nice touch!

All the salads are a 10; we ordered 3 different kinds and loved them all. The fried zucchini was great. The house wine is made by the bartender from the hotel where we stayed, and it's really good too. It has a brandy look and taste, but is really unique to Crete.

Great food with local specialites. More specialised on meat, but also the salad was rich and the wine great. Nice atmosphere, fire place, close to the harbour. Not on the very front of the harbour, you may miss it. We visited it after been reccomended by a local.

Food is excellent. Parking near bye. Sit up stairs for cozy private seating by the kitchen. I believe they are only open during the winter months, they definitely are more of a local hangout than for tourists.
