We found the food to be so fresh and delicious that we went back again for more and tried different dishes. The seafood was perfectly prepared, our meals included fresh mussels in tomato sauce, grilled fresh calamari, seafood risotto and moussaka. Portions were generous and the complimentary sweets delicious. On the beach, the sea view and cool breeze made for... More

We went for a late lunch and had a delicious meal. Beautiful location right up against the beach. Since it wasn't crowded because of the off time, the waiter brought us some samples to taste and critique for him. The food was very fresh and brought out quickly. Service was very good and free fruit and dessert was an added... More

Excellent tavern with great staff. They made us very welcome. Since this was our first meal in Chania, they explained everything about the food, what to order, what is good etc. Don't be shy asking questions, they will be very happy to explain how to drink to ouzo and what's the difference between raki and tsikoudia. Greek salad was excellent... More

I wanted seafood in Chania and read some great reviews about this restaurant. I walked a lovely 15 minutes along the ocean from Old Town to Akrogiali Taverna. BEST decision I made in Greece. This place is not only set in a gorgeous location over the ocean, but it's as much local as tourist. The amazing service is only upstaged... More

Akrogiali tavern was recommended as a place to get nice seafood. After going last night I can say that the seafood was fantastic, however the steamed muscles was potentially the best seafood dish I have ever tried. I highly recommend them for anyone who visits chania
