Great location, and excellent service

Came for an early dinner (7pm) and had no issues with getting a great seat. Please note that if you want a front row seat you need to book and it gets busy from about 8pm onwards. For dinner we had Cabbage with beetroot juice and garlic (I thought was ok), the Eggplant dip with pita bread (nice... read more

Without a doubt the best restaurant we have eaten in during our stay in Chania. The service was friendly and helpful. The views of the sunset from the harbour were spectacular. The food was delicious- we recommend the mussels in wine!

Great food, friendly staff, nice experience. I would recommend this place to everyone! The restaurant is small, so it is better to make reservation beforehand.

Fun place for dinner. service is excellent and food is yummy. Great view as well with the restaurant located on the port. Suggest going right before sunset so that you can enjoy the sun and then watch the sunset from your table.

Causy place, great service, great sea food. It's by the old port so the view really creates an urge to try sea food. If you like oysters, do not forget to try them. Everything we ordered was tasty but that oyster recipe really stood out.

The staff were happy to accommodate a mixed seafood platter as we were keen to try all the days fresh catch. It was all delicious. I've eaten seafood all over the world and this place had the best octopus, swordfish and second best sardines i've ever had.

This has become a favourite over the past couple of years. Slightly more interesting menu than a standard taverna. Food is fresh, service is good. Brought friends for the last visit and they loved it all.

I asked to hear about local products used in their offerings, and was not disappointed. The tuna steak, mussels and octopus were recommended, and I chose the mussels. They were wonderful! Walk just a little bit farther down the harbor to this lovely place and enjoy the best of Crete and the beautiful sunset.
