A traditional fish tavern recommended by locals and they were right. Excellent food, fresh, very good price and the house wine equally good. Be patient when you go since it takes a while to get served as everything is prepared upon ordering but it is worth it. Not a tourist trap so it makes sense that this is where local... More

The restaurant looks simple and so was the food. But that's the way seafood should be I think. I had the saganaki and the calamari. The saganaki was okay, usually big piece of cheese. However the calamari was very fresh and very well cooked and seasoned. So 5/5 for the calamari. The service was good, the place was on the... More

We are expats living in Crete and we eat out often. I have to say that this is place for fresh food with excellent service. The view is awesome...just like eating on the beach without the sand!!!!! I have to say that everything I have ever ordered has been wonderful. If you love calamari try the grilled stuffed calamari with... More

We walked a very far way to go to this fish restaurant and it was worth it. Though I wouldn't order the olives. We had a nice fresh caught fish and some really good calamari. All and all the waiter was very friendly and it was a great experience

During one week holiday our family ( 2 adults and 1,5y child) ate four times in this tavern close to our accommodation. We are easily voting by our feet, so eating so many times in one place is really something special. We would easily consider this tavern the best fish tavern we were in Chania. And we were in quite... More

My son chose the seafood mixed grill platter and I had the meat mixed grill platter, they were both fantastic... More
