Fantastic dinner and surroundings. Great service. Not so Great with the wild cats and kitty around the tables. The meatballs are fantastic and so are the bread with spicy sauce, great cretan wine to a thirsty traveller.

Went there with high expectations. Menu is a blend of greek, middle eastern and rather limited. I ordered their version of "vegetarian" moussaka. A total disappointment. A bland mix of unrelated vegetables including chick peas. I passed it around to others in my group to share and try to finish it. Tasteless. They did not even have a "greek salad"... More

After recommendations from friends who live in Chania we booked a table at The Well of the Turk. The location is a pretty garden or on a lovely street and the ambience is great. The food was without a doubt a much higher standard to other restaurants we had eaten at over our week in Chania. The service was as... More

Wow! we had lunch there in our last day in Chania. The place is wonderful, food was amazing! It was difficult to find it in the first place because it's like a hidden treasure :) The cuisine is a mix from greek/moroccan food. I wish I could visit it again!

I had the shish kebab which was quite tasty and also a good portion size, we also had souvlaki and the chicken dish which went down well. Good service, only slight downer was the walking tour groups which passed down... More

This wonderful restaurant is in the back streets of Chania and takes a little finding but you will be glad that you made the effort. What a lovely place. The food was wonderful and staff very helpful and friendly. We expected to be unfamiliar with the menu, and expected to not know what to choose, but it was all very... More
