Not being very hungry, I just chose a nice crisp pizza with my usual quarter litre of red wine, in addition to which I got a huge bottle of ice-cold water and, at the end, a tasty dessert of coconut ice and something chocolaty.

secluded spot facing the Lybian see in south west Crete. the place is 40 minutes walk from LUTRO . it's worth a visit for the excellent welcoming and food . Pavlos the young son of Georgeos will make you feel at home and after that you willbe yearning to be back again.

Came here as we wanted sea food and seen that it had good reviews and it did not disappoint. The lady that owns the restaurant is lovely and very attentive, she explained dishes and it was no trouble to chat with us if we wanted to know anything. I had the seafood risotto and it was gorgeous, best risotto I... More

We went to akrogiali Restaurant several times. The fish meze was excellent. The Cretan salad and eggplant/aubergine dip was great. The owner (Ioli) was very pleasant and helpful in explaining the choices. Other staff were also nice and everyone was able to speak in english too. Good ambience. Eva & Matt

One of several fish tavernas along Nea Chora beach (an easy 1k walk from the center of Chania), this one has the BEST eggplant dip I've ever tasted. Smooth, super garlicky. Fish is fresh. Tables inside or on the sidewalk. Be aware that sometimes they don't take credit cards.

Happened to drop in to this restaurant on return from swim.....didn't intend eating so much.....but menu was so good we decided on starters and mains. The food and service was excellent...grilled feta cheese...grilled prawns and calamari...all to die for. Complimentaey panacotta and truffles with coffee. Highly recommended!

Thank dee2ur
