Amazing experience

We've been here twice in a week during our stay in Chania and can absolutely confirm this is one of the best restaurants in Chania, for sure in the area of the Venetian port. We had the cuttlefish palafi the first time and the Shrimps risotto the second time and my girlfriend and I loved both... read more

A friend from Crete had recommended this restaurant to us, and we were not disappointed. Even my never pleased tween actually loved the octopus there, and that says A LOT. We also had a great risotto with shrimps and cream (don't expect many shrimps though!), a beer, water and Cretan salad and paid around 46 euro. Some people had told... More

A little restaurant at the harbour, nothing sophisticated. The menu is simple, not much variety. The food was ok, nothing special. Same as the service. The only difference it has from other restaurants is it’s BIO menu.

As a group of 5 people (and it was hard to please us all), we went there two nights in a row. Everything we ordered was really really good! Their mussels were wonderful and cuttlefish pilafi was out of this world! Some other people in the group loved the sardines wrapped in vine leaves. Very nice and friendly staff as... More
