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

We dined here on a number of occasions during a two week stay in Chania. We were actually staying in Nea Hora to avoid the tourist bustle of the Venetian harbour and old town. We enjoyed good food and friendly and efficient service on each occasion. The staff all share a sense of humour and are happy to advice anyone... More

We've been there today. The food was excellent - steamed mussels, variety of seafood, greek salad, some appetizers. Very tasty and of perfect quality. The staff extremely friendly and nice. I recommend it ;)

But this is the second time we've been disappointed in Chania by glowing reviews that bear little resemblance to the reality. This taverna is really nothing special and certainly not worth going out of your way to try. Beachside location considerably outside of... More

Luckily we picked this restaurant by chance on the first night we arrived in Chania guided by the lovely smell of fresh grilled fish. We never regretted it as we ate there several times during our stay. Whatever we chose, the food was always excellent, from the stuffed grilled squid and cattlefish to the octopus and everything else, not to... More

After a month in Greece, my husband and I wanted to try something different. On our last night in Chania, we headed to Akrogiali. It is about a 15 minute walk from the Venetian harbor but was easy to find ONLY because I had made a note not only of the name but what their sign looked like. There are... More

Food was good enough (sea variety dish is worth it). Decent rose wine. Like in many other tavernas you get something sweet with raki after you've finished, for free.

Great fresh fish, very good service in a very nice location, in the authentic district of Nea Chora and just off the beach.
