Akrogiali Taverna, Crete - Greece

I have to say that this little tavern in Chania Town in Crete did not only leave me with a good impression, it astounded me. My wife and I were touring Crete with a car and got to this most unusual tavern only to zip 2 late coffee's. The owners without knowing us at all, brought the coffee... read more

We ate late in the evening here and had a really good time. The Restaurant lies at the shore of Chania. In the contrary to the famous Venetian harbor, here you can have a peaceful dinner without the usual buzzing crowd of tourists.

Next to the beach. Do not be put off by the dull exterior. Great menu, friendly staff. Super lunch. Shared Greek salad, filleted sardines (possibly the best we have ever had) with grilled bread and fresh orange. So good we used it for lunch twice. Recommended.

We have a delicious dinner of fresh grilled fish and vegetables. Great service and a charming accordion player. Oh, and sitting next to the beach at dinner, watching the sunset; a delight!

Such a cute, clean little tavern with such timely service. Our choice of the food, greek salad, feta stuffed peppers, zucchini balls, calamari and grilled shrimps was exquisite and the octopus so soft and delicious. Kostas was also a great host.

It is a small restaurant and we were served by the owner. We enjoyed our choices, and enjoyed sitting quietly to watch those on the beach. In addition, the free dessert was of a higher quality than we had received elsewhere (bklava and penne cotta). We walked over from the Old Town and were glad that we did. It was... More
