Delicious!

Had dinner here our first night in Crete. This is my first time eating traditional Greek food, and they left an amazing first impression. I LOVE the fact that the majority of their menu is meat (for us non-fish eating people out there) even though its located on the harbor. The interior of the... read more

Visiting this traditional taverna for the second time a few days ago, I expected a truly great lunch, not only based on my exceptional previous experience, but also based on the consistently great reviews. However, although the freshly baked bread, olives and salad won us over, the main dishes were disappointing. Overall, an average dining experience

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
