This place was recommended to us by our friend. The food is really nice and good price. The seafood risotto is really good and some starters are really nice. The only problem is that the service is pretty slow and u have to wait for a while to get a drink. Otherwise its a nice place, i would recommend this... More

We chose this restaurant for our first dinner in Chania - and it turned out to be the best of choices. It is a little bit outside of the main touristic area, which is only a plus. A nice walk on the seashore brings you to the kingdom of awesome and fresh fish and seafood. Calamari and cuttlefish stuffed with... More

It was our first day in crete, we went there after we read all the good ratings, but unfortunately was bad... Staff were freindly but food was expensive and not a big deal.. The fish was undercooked and with so little meat..the octopus burned.. The cheese on greek salad wasnt not feta... I wont recommend it to anyone...

We found this restaurant on trip advisor and it was great. The calamari stuffed with feta is amazing and location with a light breeze was terrific too

We arrived at the restaurant at half past midnight. They had no problem to welcome us. People kept on arriving and sitting at the restaurant after us, then they had dinner too. Our dishes were delicious, in particular shrimps wrapped with potatoes, and fried, topped with a terrific sauce: although we knew shrimps were not fresh, we decided to take... More

We went to Akrogiali for some drinks and a meal on our last afternoon in Chania, sat overlooking Nea Hora beach. The staff were welcoming and friendly, the service was excellent and the house wine the best we had during our trip. To add to this the food was amazing - the eggplant dip was again the best we'd tasted... More

This was one of my most difficult reviews ever. We went there with my gf and we had heard good things from a local friend and from tripadvisor. The location is a minus because it is away from the local town. The food was ok but not as good as i had hoped. Also it turned me off that i... More

Very disappointed in the quality of food. Ordered Greek keftedakia and was served IKEA meatballs minus the sauce. The rest of the seafood ordered was bland and not noteworthy. It's a shame as this establishment was one of the best seafood places in Chania in the past.
