We had our last dinner at Akrogiali Taverna after a week of traveling around Crete. By far, this was the best seafood we had during our entire stay on the island.

Great restaurant if you fancy fresh fish/ seafood. The food was awesome and the cretan pies a delight. We tried the house wine which was good. Very affordable. Now the pudding was offered and it was the best i had in Greece! Loved it!

Long story short, nice place to eat in Chania, food is fresh and really delicious. Big variety of meats and seafood, but vegetarians will surely also find something tasty. Found it really nice, that we was given (totally free) farewell Raki shot and amazing homemade coconut cake Solid 9/10 from me, great place!
