“Yum!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2014

We found this restaurant on trip advisor and it was great. The calamari stuffed with feta is amazing and location with a light breeze was terrific too

“Try this restaurant first”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2014

We arrived at the restaurant at half past midnight.
They had no problem to welcome us. People kept on arriving and sitting at the restaurant after us, then they had dinner too.
Our dishes were delicious, in particular shrimps wrapped with potatoes, and fried, topped with a terrific sauce: although we knew shrimps were not fresh, we decided to take the risk, and we were very happy for the choice.
The other dish was a seafood salad, with wonderful yogurt sauce topping and crispy bread slices.
I first decided to go to this restaurant because it is far from the area that is overpopulated by tourists.
They offered four baklava honey cakes (we were two) and perhaps best Greek yogurt I have ever had, topped with homemade sweet carrots.
Very good value.
Excellent service.
Nice location

“Wonderful end to our trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2014

We went to Akrogiali for some drinks and a meal on our last afternoon in Chania, sat overlooking Nea Hora beach. The staff were welcoming and friendly, the service was excellent and the house wine the best we had during our trip. To add to this the food was amazing - the eggplant dip was again the best we'd tasted and there were great choices for vegetarians. Complimentary drinks and dessert added to the experience and made our last few hours in Chania really memorable. Highly recommended.

“Mixed feelings...good and bad”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2014

This was one of my most difficult reviews ever.

We went there with my gf and we had heard good things from a local friend and from tripadvisor.

The location is a minus because it is away from the local town.

The food was ok but not as good as i had hoped.

Also it turned me off that i found myself in an island at a sea tavern without fresh octopus..
My gf really liked the place though.

On the positive side was the service, fast polite and efficient..
