“Mediocre food at a wonderful location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2012

THe dishes weren't all that great as we hoped they'll be, when we read the menu and they were actually a bit overpriced but the atmosphere was quite lovely. It's placed in a great location at the old harbour and though it was a bit crowded the service was quite fast.

“Average food, especially for what you pay”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2012

We visited Ta Chalkina during our holidays in Chania. The location is great, with a view at the sea and the old harbor. However, the food is very average, with relatively small portions. The prices are a little high too, considering the quality of the food and the quantity. We ate in better restaurants and we saw how delicious the Cretan food can be, so I would prefer to eat somewhere else next time.

“Three Times - Always a Charm!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2012

We have visited Ta Chalkina three times so far and have never been let down. The food is outstanding always, the atmosphere intoxicating, and the prices amazing! Try the stuffed vine leaves, Apaki pork and stuffed mushrooms. I cannot wait to visit Chania again to eat at Ta Chalkina!
