Fine classical restaurant

A typical cretan restaurant. Frendly personel. We were first on terasse but it began to rain. Very quickly the personel helped us inside. The lamb we had were tasty and the price was not high.

We visited here for dinner with our friends who have relocated to Crete. It was a recommendation from the Greek side of their family and it was everything and more than we could have expected.

Table booked in advance for us by nice people at Mamaras when on our walking trip - The Chrisostomos restaurant service, ambience and more importantly food and wine first class. I chose goat in feta sauce, not something I see on menu in UK, it was really delicious. Hope to revisit on future.

Nice restaurant and a very friendly and helpful staff. The oven baked bread was wonderful and served hot. We had rabbit and chicken and were very pleased with both. You could easily share the salad and entrée. We also enjoyed their house wine.

Last winter we visited on multiple occasions this gourmet cretan restautant. The excellent quality of meat, the great wooden oven baked bread, the friendly staff sets very high standards for traditional food in Chania. The prices are very reasonable. It is a must visit during your stay.

We liked the anchovies serve with greens and tomatoes. Good service. Bread oven a big selling point but our bread not as fresh tasting as other places.
