THE place for wine tasting and delicatessen products

Friendly stuff with good knowledge in wines. You have to get a salad along (they have wonderful recipes) and maybe a plateau of cheeses and cold cuts. The main courses are not as satisfying (one star minus there) so I would suggest you stick to variety. The area around the restaurant is magical and... read more

My friend and I stumbled upon this gem in Chania's old town. We stopped because the restaurant was full of locals and smelled great. Vineria 36 sources its products from Crete and the local flavors (olive oil, honey, citrus) shined through in our meal. The chef greeted us at our table and, after we informed him about our wine preferences,... More

An odd staff saving concept: One guy in the small open kitchen and another guy is doing the rest. If You think that is hard to run a restaurant like this You know why the the food is not better. The dishes are chosen not to be time consuming, as a lot can be prepared in advance. My starter was... More

Found this little gem of a wine restaurant whilst walking around some of the small narrow streets in Chania. What a find. Food was cooked to perfection and was of a higher standard compared to some of the original tavernas out and about. I had a smoked salmon starter and my partner had a Greek salad. For main I had...

Very nice location at the old town but away from the noise of the busy port. Excellent selection of Greek and Cretan wines, the food menu is not very large but every dish is made with attention to detail. Don't miss out, a must place to visit, make sure to reserve during August

We visited this restaurant looking for good wine & food & found both easily. We ate the drunken fig salad & were advised by the couple next to us that they has eaten caprese which they recommended. We followed it with mussels which were wonderfully cooked and a chicken in orange dish which was also lovely. The day who served... More

Delightful service from an enthusiastic waitress, who recommended the perfect Rose wine to go with our meal. Also things on the menu that were a bit different menu from the usual Greek fare.

The food is basic, the customer service terrible and the owner of the place is completely mental. When we approached her to express our complains about the wrong dishes we received, the fact that we ate separately as the main courses were delayed; she started screaming at us trying to convince us we were wrong. The only bad experience we... More
