Glossitses is a eating establishment in the old port harbor area. The restaurant has a nice view of the harbor. This place is frequented by locals. Clean and comfortable environment. The food is average. I would of gave 4 stars but because the establishment allows smoking, I dropped the rating to 3 stars. Smoking is so not in fashion nowadays.... More

We had an excellent late lunch outside in the sun in february, just a few meters from the sea. The food was delicious, the staff was very helpful and the service was very good. I would recommend the black rice with squids,sardines wrapped in vine leaves and grilled octopus.

Definitely the best fava I've eaten in Greece. The service is excellent, the food is very tasty and fresh, although the salmon salad wasn't that great. But I would visited again for sure. The location in the old venetian port is very nice and you can see the sunset from the tavern.

The only reason I'm not giving this restaurant a 5 is because the portions are small (served in small entre plates) even though it's the main course! The taste is fantastic, you can't go wrong with anything you order, presentation is nice, good service, great wine, on the pricey side though! Will definitely go back!

We had a wonderful meal here our first night in Chania. The book had warned us off of waterfront tavernas, but it didn't apply to this place. This is on the quieter side of the harbor. We shared a bunch of mezes and they were all spectacular. The grilled mushrooms in lemon are amazing. Fried cheese kabob is to die... More
