The one thing we have learned in Chania is to only go to the restaurants that are busy. The ones that are empty are like that for a reason. Amphora is busy in fact at times people are waiting for a table. The food is...More

The restaurant is located just by the water in the Chania harbor. One reason tho choose this restaurant is that they seem to have a policy of not trying to pull people in like almost all the other restaurants in the harbor do. We really...More
