Well, at the Hotel we received a suggestion for this restaurant for the evening as "the best restaurant of Chania", usually that sounds funny... In past when we heard similar presentations we decided to go to the restaurant ready to find some "surprise". We read also here on tripadvisor some reviews (4, too few for a correct evaluation, we thought ) where somebody wrote about good food, great service and cheap prices in this restaurant so... Well, let's go there! Unfortunately we found other: the food is pretty normal. The Boureki seems to be not too genuine, indicated as one of the "dishes of the day", probably they prepared it the day... Before, then warmed it in a (microwave?) oven: the upper side was totally dry and was very hard to slice it with flatware, the rest was really less warm than the upper part... The Moussaka have been served in a dish, like an italian "lasagna" (like in some cretan fast-food chain) and we surely tasted best flavour in other restaurants in Crete... Then we ordered the fish, another dish of the day: roasted squids(?) rings with vegetables: was only 10 (ten) rings of squid with 6 (six) small slices of roasted vegetables... That's really not enough for a dish sold for 12 (twelve) euros! Anyway, we take also one small decanter of house wine (white, not so bad) for two and a small bottle of table water. At the end of the dinner, a complimentary with some (tasteless) watermelon slices and some Raki (no complimentary cakes or sweets, to be precise). Finally the location: they placed us in table placed in a downhill where not only the chairs were in unstable equilibrium but also dishes, glasses and every thing on the table needs to be blocked to prevent falling to the ground (see the pictures!). Consider also that wall pieces have fallen often on the table... Ah! Ah! Ah! How to say... Sincerely, maybe in another table you'll find less troubles, but food is not genuine and the portions are really too small: consider to pay 30€ per person but you'll still have hunger. It's really hard to save this restaurant! There is a lot of better choice in Chania.
