Location of the restaurant is very good- on the old port of Chania, close to sea. However, tables and chairs of the restaurant are not very comfortable and the restaurant gets croweded. Some days of the week they have live Cretan music, and musicians are actually very good. However, you will have to make reservation and be there early if... More

The food was ok but the service very slow. And we didn't even visit the place at its busiest day: when there's live music. Also we noticed that the hospitality in other restaurants is generally better.

Delicious food and nice location of restaurant, especially in the evening time. That night restaurant was really busy, so it took kind of too long time to get a bill, but on the other hand it´s only good sign, if there is many people and for a reason - food was great! Nice place especially for a group of friends... More

We went there our last day in Chania, so we left with an unpleasant taste... The dishes had many salt problems (some needed more, some less), the chicken tigania was chicken with the bones, not fillet, apaki with honey wasn't good enough and the greek salad was small. Sfakiani pita was nice and also the location, but nothing special. I... More

They say the client is always right but in this case the client is never right. We were in the mood of listening to some local live music so we made a reservation at Chalkina and they told us to be there at 20.30.When we arrived there we realised there was no live music and the staff there told us...

Everything in the menu is great! Just ask the waitress for guidance! Great place, location and prices full of food and drinks you will pay around 15euros p/p. Excellent desert free of charge as well with the traditional raki.Good food with traditional music of Crete.

A waterside tavern that offers many seats outside with a myriad of waiters to seat and look after you. They serve genuine Cretan cuisine. The thing to note on all “genuine Cretan cuisine” is that when it’s ready is when you get it, sometimes quickly sometimes not. So you may order something that you believe is a starter only to...

Despite awards and opinions, we did not appreciate. Nice place facing ... the long queue of people waiting for tables. Very slow service, too few (running) waiters, too many people, overcrowded terrace. Food maybe adequate but you get more for less money in many other places. Forget-it.
