Overpriced and not fresh fish or food! We went there as near our hotel and were very hungry. I barely ate the mixed fish grill we ordered - all clearly frozen and not fresh - fried. Expensive for the 25 euros we paid. Don't go here - worst food we had in crete - by far!

It was the first time that we eat there. 1- salad was not fresh and had bad smell, when we asked, they told us that the salad was on the fridge. 2- We ordered a fish for 2 persons, it was not so fresh, then without any tast. 3- they delayed about 55 min the fish

This restaurant although it's located in old harbor it's very amazing. Best seafood in harbor. I loved every dish. Friendly staff, quick service and with a very generous treat (1 bottle of tsikoudia, 2 portions of loukoumades (greek sweet), 2 portions of chalvas (greek sweet) and 1 big plate of fresh fruits). You should definitely try this amazing restaurant.

We stopped in for just a drink, and were gently lured for a long afternoon of indulgence and relaxation. It was 38 degrees but the sea breeze made everything very pleasant. Though we didn't try them, apparently it has a great reputation for desserts. Well placed for a walk out to the lighthouse.

Very friendly service and no pressure to eat at the restaurant unlike most others in this town. Great location in the quieter section of the harbour, with seating outside. Starters and desserts were good, but slightly let down by the main course. I think fish might be the best option. Some good elements but disappointing overall.

We live in the region and enjoy many good and very good restaurants. This one was recommended by a hotel keeper. We trusted the reference and were terribly dissapointed. Non of the 4 of us was happy by the selection we made. The moussaka was not good at all. They promissed grilled fisch for 10 euro and brought a tasteless... More

A lot of restaurants in the old city will compete for your business and they can be in your face about it. This restaurant has great customer service and you'll enjoy the dining experience without having to watch employees hustle tourists for business. This restaurant is on the edge of the harbor with still a very nice atmosphere and great... More

We had lunch at Antigone during our stay in Chania. We ordered "Chicken a la creme" and some other dish I don't remember. :) The service was helpful and friendly and suggested us a very tasty local beer. Also we got some delicious dessert with Raki. The Chania harbour view is also amazing if you sit outside. Recommended!

We just arrived in Chania and this fish tavern was recommended by our travel agent. We paused to look at the menu before strolling around the outer harbour. Anthony greeted us and seemed pleasantly surprised when we returned for dinner after our stroll. Alas a hot day had turned cool after sunset do we were among but a few couples... More

When my husband and I walked into the restaurant and asked what fresh fish they had, the waiter took us to the kitchen area, opened the cooler and asked us to pick a fish we wanted. We chose a red snapper, and then they weighed it since prices for fresh fish are by weight. It's amazing how good fresh fish... More
