Lovely location, good food

On the harbour and great for people watching. I had sardines which were delicious and my husband enjoyed the chicken slouvaki. Reasonably priced. Toilets are oddly right through the kitchen area walking through the middle of it and past the busy chefs.....would never be allowed in UK with health... read more

Toilets are oddly right through the kitchen area walking through the middle of it and past the busy chefs.....would never be allowed in UK with health and safety issues!

Just along the harbour from the hotel, this restaurant boasts an extended outdoor seating area with lovely views. Waitering staff were friendly and helpful and happy to please. The Fish Platter was big and with so much variety. Well worth it, even with the obligatory cats waiting patiently for any left overs or bits you can't eat - like the... More

Very disappointing! Have to agree withJayL 17. When I read his review against all the other glowing reports I thought he/she was just a grumbler! Having abstained from lunch we were looking fwd to a really good meal. We ordered a Greek salad to start. I suppose you could say it had the basic ingredients but we've had nicer presented... More

The family run restaurant offered fresh local fish and well as a wide variety of Cretan dishes. The staff was great and very helpful. The local seafood was outstanding. Highly recommend. The view of the Harbor added to their attraction of this restaurant.

On the less crowded side of the harbour, but where there is also an abundance of restaurants, is the Vasiliko. I chose it by chance as I had already discovered that there seemed little to distinguish one restaurant from another in Chania. I ordered sea bream with a salad. The fish was well cooked, and served with about 8 chips.... More

This restaurant is tucked away to the side, slightly away from the rowdy and standard touristy places. The food quality is excellent here and excellent value for money. Locals come here also and rate it. The owner is friendly and genuinely interested in making your dining experience a memorable one. The fish and seafood is delicious here. We came back... More

in comparison to the other restaurants in this beautiful city they are correct but poor and it is not enough ... their offer is a bit too limited, prices are too high and the quality of the food needs improvement...

We have been coming to Chania for years, and this is usually the first place we head to after checking into our hotel. Granted, I have not had a bad meal in Crete, but Vasiliko is definitely special. The food is stellar. The fish is always fresh and perfectly prepared. Dishes are simple, and traditional. That also means there is... More

We discovered Vasiliko last year Ansgar to return to it this year as well. On both occasions the fish they served us Wa excellent and tasty. We will return again on a later occasion.

A small but really nice fish taverna , owned and run by a family of fishermen . I have visited this taverna several times and I was always a very happy customer . Fresh fish and fresh seafood every day . The fish come from their own fishing boat which is moored right in front of the taverna . Reasonable... More
