“More than great!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2013

A relative who is a frequent traveller to Chania recommended us to pay a visit to Kouzina e.p.e. We actually paid 2 visits, as after the first one we wanted to come back! The restaurant serves a great variety of home-made food, but it also has a menu with food that can be prepared for you to order. The food tasted great, the staff was very friendly and helpful both times we went there and the atmosphere in the restaurant was very modern and cozy. While there, we realised that the locals prefer it. At the end of the meal they treat you with fruit or dessert and the local cretan alcoholic drink called "tsikoudia" or "raki". One tip for you: don't go to the restaurant too late, as the ready-made food may have been consumed. The restaurant opens around lunch time and closes at 19.30 (at least over the summer) and when, the second time, we went around 17.30 there was only 3 different ready-made dishes left (which were really good) and we also had to order from the menu. If you want to taste their whole variety, then go by 16.00ish. All in all, I would recommend a visit there!

“Excellent, excellent, excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2013 via mobile

We were advised to visit the place by a student that lives in Chania. The atmosphere was ideal for eating. There is mostly already cooked food and we tried three dishes: octopus with pasta, lasagne with chicken, spinach and graviera cheese, and zucchini flowers stuffed with rice. Everything was fantastic and very tasty. Personally I loved the lasagne, then octopus and then the flowers where the rice was undone. Try the food here, it is rhe place locals prefer.

“Inadequate Service& Rude Behaviour”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2013 via mobile

As soon as we sat in the table, we were aproached by the waiter, who was in the border between being rude and arrogant. When we asked if all dishes included in the menu are available he said " make a choice and i will let you know if is available or not". Apparently half of the menu was not available- something unacceptable for the bussiest season of the year. I would definetely recommend to the owener to better educate his staff on how to properly serve clients. A "non go" for me!
