We had fresh fish and salad for lunch and at the end we had some coffee, as they offered to...us fresh fruit and the famous Cretan drink (raki) I'd to visit it again, I recommend to everyone try the delicious plates of this restaurantMore

We ended up here by chance and glad we did. Great authentic Greek dishes at a good price. Nice little quiet corner of Chania near the harbour. Would recommend!

A really nice ambience and delicious lunch here, thank you. The Greek Salad was very good and the Moussaka was probably the best I've had. Highly recommend.

The waiters were very rude and they refuse to ask the chef about the ingredients of the foods that we ask about because of some allergies that I have the food was good tho.

Two of the waiters were very unpolite. I am allergic to basilisk and they don’t even know if the food had some in. The were make jokes and stuff and they were very rude ! So it’s better not to go there !

We ended up here by chance. The slow coocked lamb was first class, succulent and immersed with fresh Cretan spices. The cheese cake is the best my wife and I have ever had, and we do have some experience. Outstanding. Friendly and very efficient service.

Terrible, terrible restaurant. Do NOT visit this restaurant. We ordered a few dishes last night and said we had an allergy so we asked to make sure nothing we ordered had this ingredient in it. The waiter stressed it was fine. After 2 bites we...started to feel ill so asked the waiter to double check before continuing. He came back and said “actually no, your right. It does have it in.” He apologised but it was too late. He then went on to charge us for all the food we couldn’t eat! We said we wouldn’t pay for the one dish we couldn’t touch and although he said it was fine, through gritted teeth, who we could imagine was the owner of the restaurant made a fuss behind us to the waiter presumably asking why we didn’t pay for it, as if he was going to come to us and ask us to pay for it himself! What a joke. Don’t go here.More
