We were absolutely satisfied from the food quality, the service and the prices. It is really different from other restaurants in Chania. Highly recommended for its dishes

A bit off the main road so no ocean view but worth it. Less commercial than the ones on the strip. Many local ate here too. Great value and all our dishes were great. The lamb with potatoes and staka with eggs stood out. Laid back atmosphere and typical local Greek taverna with traditional Cretan music and local specialties. Would... More

This is a deservedly popular place, with locals and tourists alike. Instead overlooking the sea, the view is on a car park, but the food is worth it! They specialize in meat and veggies instead of fish. We had lamb and moussaka, both excellent. Concerning the starters, portions are huge and the snails were a bit sandy. They have a... More

We had the goat and lamb, both of which were superbly cooked. The bread was fresh and warm, baked in their wood oven. Lots of locals go here. Most things in the menu involve meat and are quite heavy dishes though so bear that in mind. Yummy doughnut dessert!

We ate here 3 times during our 10 night stay in Chania as we thought it was the best food we had eaten by far. They use a wood-fired oven to bake their bread and cook the food and it really is outstanding, just be careful not to fill up on the delicious bread too much as the portions are... More

The best meal we've had in Chania so far! Excellent food, extremely friendly and patient service and a lovely atmosphere. The giant beans are a standout! Husband said the dolmades were the best he's had in Greece (we've been traveling through a few islands for the past two weeks and he's had dolmades nearly every day!). If you're a fan... More
