Checked reviews on trip advisor and decided to visit... Glad we did. We were feeling pretty full after having a late (ill-decided lunch) so decided to have a few lighter dishes. The cod/potato dish, Flava and grilled cheese starter to start - all fantastic. Their fantastic whole grain pitta also deserves a special call out - served warm and fantastic!... More

Nice position by harbour. We had 2 very good meals here - both times for starters 2 of us shared marinated salmon with lemon curd, absolutely delicious, and hummus, very nice, not over seasoned or with too much tahini - maybe none? For mains, fish of the day - tasty tender swordfish, next visit I had grilled red tuna, again... More

Excellent little place, a 5 minute walk out of the tourist chaos. The food was amazing and if we stayed longer, we would have dined there every night. We are dying to try the rest of the dishes and hope to do so on our next visit. I highly recommend this place to people who know their food and dine... More

We got the fresh squid, tamaras, creten salad, swordfish and grilled octopus. Fresh, tasty. They are a bio kitchen, which means organic products. Lastly, the music was so fun I almost got up to dance. Oldies like johnny lee lewis, monkees, cher, a really fun mix. Definately recommend.

Great little place on the waterfront. Service was super friendly and the food was delicious - we had a Cretan salad (tomatoes really ripe and cheese brilliant, serving size big for the price), together with pitta bred, grilled sardines wrapped in vine leaves and a plate of fresh grilled octopus. The pitta was incredible (nothing like the dry stuff you... More

We visited this restaurant twice on our weeks holiday, the first evening we arrived at 7pm without booking a table, the restaurant was full and after speaking to the manager he said he would have a table for us in half an hour. We had a short walk around the harbor and returned 40 minutes later to be greeted and... More

Its always plenty of locals visiting this restaurant and this is a bonus. The best judges of Cretan food - are the locals. And they are right. The food and prices were excellent.

I was delighted to find a restaurant in Chaniá who have the same ideas as me, which is regional, organic and fairtrade. And the food was excellent as well. And nice place in the harbour. Well worth a visit!

We ordered beef with rice and chicken with rice. The beef was cooked perfectly and was really tender. However, The yoghurt that the chicken was cooked in was too salty and it was generally just a bit boring. Apparently the chicken was spicy but i couldnt detect a chilli ... Service good - we received fruit and raki at the... More

We were party of six. Service was friendly and profession and we like the atmosphere. First courses were very testy: Pava, octopus in vinegar, hot peppers and Crete salad are recommended. Main courses were average: Sea brim fish and grilled octopus were good but fresh fried calamari was below the average: chewy and no sauce. Toilet were not clean.
