I like it. All the fish meal is excellent, like homemade. Great warm athmosfere, good staff. Can recommend great stuffed with feta chease and herbs squids and dolmadakia (stuffed grape leaves).

The restaurant is situated right in front of a beach and it has a beautiful view! The staff treated as, as if we were family and their recommendations on food were excellent! We had a mixed grill plate, a pork chop, a baby kalamari, 2 beers, tsikoudia and desert (4 people) and it only cost 48 euro!). The food was... More

During our holiday in Chania in September 2014, we encountered a great Greek tavern on the beach called Volakas. Fantastic authentic Greek food, terrace with beautiful sea view and very friendly service. After our third visit we were greeted like family, especially by Georgia. We will certainly go back there!

This restaurant is situated on the quiet beach road in Nea Chora - 15 minutes along the sea- front from Chania old town. Located with a grand view of the bay and islands and with tables outside the restaurant, too, along the sea-front. Take your pick depending on the weather and wind! Volakas also hire out sunbeds and parasols on... More

We tried the calamari and it was so nice and tender. Few times that we have visited this place at Nea Chora beach we were very pleased by the service the variety and the price. It defently worth a visit.

The squids here were very fresh and tasty. We had them grilled and deep fried and both options were delicious. It's a nice restaurant with a great view of the sea. Complimentary dessert was very tasty too. Definitely recommend.

Walk west out of the harbour at Chania, follow the road through the car park and along the shoreline and you'll come to a beach and a row of restaurants. The one you want is Taverna Volakas. We so enjoyed eating at this place we returned time and again. The staff are genuinely friendly (they quickly felt like friends), the... More

This tavern is located directly across from the beach so is an excellent option for lunch while beaching. In a highly touristic area full of mediocre dining options, this is probably the best. However, this does not mean that it is great. Just better than the rest. Quality and prices are average, but a satisfactory option for a day at... More
