Great food, lovely staff

We went to this restaurant on our first night,as it was near our accommodation, and we were not disappointed! we had the seafood pasta which was more than generous, and delicious too, and they only bring bread if you ask for it (didn't realise this until our second visit) We visited this... read more

I visited this place with my boyfriend for dinner during our stay in Chania town, unfortunately the experience was average. It didn't match the high expectations I had from reading the reviews on trip advisor. The service was quite inattentive, the food was mediocre. The waiter broke the cork trying to open the wine, I guess that can happen but... More

With websites like Tripadvisor, there is a tendency (by me anyway!) to search in some detail for the best restaurants & places, to ensure that your holiday is as great as possible. On this occasion, we stumbled across this one by chance after a day at the beach. The welcome we received was a wonderfully friendly one, & the food... More

I don't get all the fuss about this restaurant. The plates were so small compared to other restaurant near by. The taste was ok, nothing special. Would not recommend.

A typical greek restaurant in the seaside. We have been sent here by the boat tour and it was definitely worth it. I particularly appreciated the marinated anchovies, very fresh and with not too much vinegar (I could hardly feel it) exactly as it is supposed to be. Fried zucchinis were simply good. As a main course we had spaghetti... More

Very good small taverna just at few meters from the blue sea..excellent service, large choice of cretan dishes..fresh fish a bit expensive like in all cretan tavernas..You need a car to get there..or a scooter.

This restaurant was recommended by our hotel host and we ordered the dishes he suggested. One calamari stuffed with cheese and zucchini balls. It was delicious! If you are in the region, don't think twice and come try this restaurant with great food! The service is also good, that is why I gave it 5 points!

This is a great restaurant. The food was good. It was easy to find. If you go for dinner there is a wonderful sunset. The food is fresh and really yummy. It is also very affordable. The owner insists on taking your order and serving you himself. They are super nice and really accommodating. We got the seafood platter and... More
