Deliciously different

Not usually greek fare but oh so good. The mussels were divine, that beautiful white wine sauce sopped up in bread. The squid ink risotto was a definite stand out, & shrimp risotto aldi lovely. Complimentary dessert & fantastic staff, lovely to eat here

Great restaurant. Mainly sea food but with a very nice twist to them. The owners are very helpful and the staff fantastic. Best variety of ouzo in town.

Try the grilled octopus and the fava bean salad if you can. Lovely harbour situation away from the more touristy restaurants, very good service and excellent quality white wine for only 5 euros per half litre! Worth trying.

Excellent experience...from the very friendly and attentive staff to the delicious seafood (try the paella) and plentiful wine, we loved our meal. Plus the view of the sun setting over the harbor...perfection. Price was very reasonable. I would definitely eat here again and wholeheartedly recommend this restaurant.

We enjoyed our experience at Glossitses. The service was great and food was great. Compared to other restaurants in Crete, I found Glossitses to be a bit pricier, but probably one of the best seafood options in Chania.

Having been a regular visitor to this restaurant over the past five years, I can honestly say that the high standards of food, menu and staff friendliness has never fallen, and remains excellent. Definitely worth a visit if you are at Chania old harbour.

Friendly staff. Everything was cooked perfectly. Regret that we didn't go there for our second night, and went for something different. Definitely coming back next time in Chania
