“Superb lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2014

As of May 2014 this restaurant has had 470 reviews and has a 4.5 rating. My visit though was not based on these reviews but recommended by a local . All I did was ask him where he goes to eat fish -and he said Akrogiali..end of story!
We had the mixed platter which included octopus, shrimp, fish, squid and kalamari. Every single item was cooked perfectly and most importantly was fresh. The Salad was superb as was the house wine. All in all a great dining experience all for under €40 for two.
I would strongly recommend a visit. Word of advice ..avoid the tourist trap restaurants by the lighthouse, bad food bad service and overpriced.

“Great food at great prices. True Greek hospitality!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2014

I recently stayed in Chania in this quiet part of town. I ended up going to Akrogiali every day at least once. The owner and staff are very courteous, polite and hospitable -- they give a real Greek hospitality. The food is very well priced (many dishes well under 10 euro), and the cooking is very Greek and delicious. There is free WiFi, and a kids menus is also available. A free desert and drink at the end of the meal was always offered. A very well balanced and well run business in these difficult times in Greece giving respectful and excellent value to foreign travellers. I would certainly recommend this restaurant to anyone staying in Chania, and I look forward to coming back.

“Seafood”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2014

We ate at Akpogiali taking a friend who was a visitor to Chania, Crete. The place was spotless, and looked lovely all in blue and white. The owner and staff were very courteous. The food was of a very high standard, the fresh calamari just melted in your mouth, and all the other seafood was excellent.
