Very good place with delicious food. The hostess is very friendly. We've got a warm reception. Together with the food we've got an advice for evening and next days stay. Recommend to visit for lunch or dinner. And taste shrimps with potato fried, stuffed calamary and grilled octopus. For desert we got wonderful cakes - and free.

We had lunch here during a day at the beach - which is a great beach, by the way! A cut above other tavernas we'd visited, with toasted garlic bread to accompany yummy taramasalata, chicken souvlaki, and a tasty seafood variety plate. And I actually liked the complimentary baklava. It's usually too icky sweet for me. Great service on the... More

We ate here on our first evening in Chania and were very impressed. Started with the mezze and Cretan pies and were pretty full after. This meant that we did not do justice to the seafood platter which had a fantastic variety. Everything was delicious, topped off by the (free) ouzo and baclava which we of course managed to squeeze... More

Wonderful restaurant just outside the centre of Chania. If you like calamari then you must try here it stuffed with feta and herbs. Very tasty and great value too. Good spot for watching the sun going down too!

The best food and very friendly staff! We ate there an absolutely delicious grilled seafood plate, octopus in olive oil and vinegar dressing, baked aubergine with seafood, cuttlefish stuffed with feta and herbs with house white wine. All finger-licking good! Restaurant has a great sea view and the owner is very friendly. Highly recommend this restaurant! :)

As last year, we spent a week in Chania. And as last year we ate a lot of our meals at Akrogiali. The food is very good, service is personal and very friendly, everything is clean and nice. When staying on the beach bathing and sunning, they serve you drinks and food, and you may use their clean and modern... More
