Just 5 meters from the old port, is ideal for very tasty fish plates. Try the red tuna on the grill. Its Amazing. Octopus, kalamari and pork chop are very tasty too. The prices are seasonal and the staff is friendly.

Lovely restaurant overlooking the interesting harbor of Chania Town. Our first meal in Greece. Recommended for its delicious fresh seafood and traditional Greek cuisine. It was lunchtime, so we were interested in something light. The Greek salad turned out to be the best we had on any of the islands. We particularly liked the manouri cheese, like feta but nicely...

Good location, pleasant staff. Not a fully 'fish restaurant' but has several fish dishes. Tzatziki and pitta for starters. Tuna steak, cod and 2 black Angus rib eye steaks washed down with local white wine and draft charma beer. Good enough to warrant 2 visits.

We found this place on Tripadvisor and walked all the way to the end of the inner harbour to get to it. When we arrived the owner didn't think he was that highly rated in Tripadvisor but I assured him he was! The service was first rate. The food amazing, the hot peppers were tear inducing! They were great with... More

Our hotel recommended this restaurant and we were not dissappointed. The food was cooked to perfection, we had grilled octopus, small fish, cretan salad, potato and a lovely dip called fava which we enjoyed very much. This place gets very busy with locals especially on the weekend so best to book a table. The waiters are extremely friendly and funny... More

After sampling the food at numerous restaurants during our stay in Chania, I would say that the quality and presentation of the food was excellent. I would recommend the mussels in white wine as a really tasty meal. This restaurant was busy most nights and was used a lot by the locals , which says everything .
