“Great in all aspcts.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2013

Great service will meet u at the door, the only place that doesnt atempt to drag u inn or offer you tons if free crap that you are likely not to get anyways. A person standing next to their menu(which is well made, exiting and with pictures and explanations of what everything is big +) asking if you would like a table. Once you sit down, you will be taken care of by great waiters . The food is exellent and well balanced, something for everyone here. We were a gang of 8 people, after the meal, we got free fresh dessert , 2 daquaries and enough Raki to drown a fullgrown hippo...each :-) great night, thanx to the staff , that arent a stranger to joining you for a Raki if the mood is right .

Cannot recommend this place enough, you will be amazed.

“Zepos Restaurant - the best restaurant in Chania”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2013

In general there are too many restaurants, who offers poor service and bad pricing - with cheap tricks - Avoid these... BUT with ZEPOS - you get the real deal...no doubt about it..!. Nice service, great staff - and large flexibility with items on the menu. There is not enough room to recommend all the good dishes there - but its a restaurant for everybody.. Great play-room also..
Try the Emma´s Special (which is not on the menu) - and try the various mezes... especially the Sautated mushrooms - and great byzantine meatballs..
Worth the money and the visit!!!!

“A memorable appetizer”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2013

There are many tavernas along the old port waterfront. Zeros has has a wonderfully varied menu. I was looking for an evening snack, not a full meal, while a sat and watched the last of the glass bottomed boats head out on their 7:30 one hour run. Amid the usual Greek mezze, I saw something different, avocado and shrimps (sic). The shrimp are warm with a slight grilled flavor. Over all is drizzled a lemon sauce with slight bit of anise added. The first bite was so memorable, I called the waiter over to tell him how delicious it was.
The waiters are friendly and not pushy. You can have a very leisurely time while you enjoy the breeze and view

“Great restaurant in Chania Harbor”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2013

Visiting Zepos restaurant was one of the highlights of our visit to Chania. It is a beautiful restaurant with a great view of the historic Old Harbor. Our dinner was the best we had in Chania: the Hummus and Grandmother's Moussaka that I ordered were both excellent.
Beyond the wonderful food and great location, the friendly service of the owner and staff made our large group feel like we had been invited a friend's house for dinner. The atmosphere was festive and generous, and we enjoyed ourselves so much that we returned for dinner at Zepos two nights in a row! In addition, the gift store is charming and well-stocked with local, artesanal food items. Thank you to the owner, Litsa, for a wonderful experience!

“FASHINATING VIEW COMBINED WITH CRETAN FLAVORS”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2013

ZEPOS restaurant, which is placed in the most beautiful and historical area of Chania, the Old Harbor, combines traditional Cretan flavors with a fascinating view. The staff's not only professional, but also friendly behavior is indicative to the Greek hospitality. I would highly recommend you to visit ZEPOS restaurant for its quality dishes, unique decoration, pleasant and cozy environment, reasonable prices and traditional atmosphere. Last but no least, ZEPOS restaurant offers you the opportunity to buy traditional Cretan products for gifts and souvenirs like local Olive Oil which is internationally known for its beneficial and healing properties.
