We stayed at the village where Gramboussa is located and visited this gem twice as the food was beyond expectations. They will always bring a little starter salad and a big bottle of tsikoudia as a treat before you even order. The location is top-notch, overlooking the sea, very carefully decorated, with rustic details and beautiful crockery. The food is... More

Very nice decoration of the restaurant (we were seated out side under the large patio/pergola under lots of beautiful greenery. There was a splendid view over the bay in the soft light from the sunset. Food was traditional but well cooked and well prepared. The kids in particular loved the 'free fruit' bar after dinner. I highly recommend this restaurant.

Nothing much to say. A highlight in Crete. Must visit. All dishes were fantastic, nicely cooked, quality and quantity wise, many choices of traditional cretan cuisine. Fresh ingredients, nicely mixed together.

I have visited Gramboussa restaurant more than one times, the menu offers plenty of local dishes with respect to Cretan tradition, the portions are not so big (the last years they have made them smaller I think) but they are value for money (compared to other touristic places in Chania and given that the restaurant is not located in the...

Location and food were great!We were lucky that there was also live music that night which made the already nice atmosphere even more traditional!

We had a delicious meal at Gramboussa! We were short on time as we had to pick up friends at the airport but had heard many good things and wanted to try this restaurant and they did not disappoint. We asked the server if he could expedite the meal and he suggested ordering from the wood oven menu. The food... More

We had dinner here on the way back from Balos Beach. The terrace is a nice spot to sit and enjoy your dinner. The food was really tasty and there was a good selection of things to share. Staff was friendly and quick.

Great restaurant with authentic Cretan dishes, maybe with some modern twist. Delicious and beautifully presented food! Best freshly squeezed orange juice. Salads are amazingly delicious - especially ones with tomatoes and local cheeses. All you can eat free fruits for deserts is a nice touch too. Very recommended.
