Recomended Akrogiali taverna in Nea Chora, Chania by an Australian friend of mine, was an unforgettable experience. Situated in a perfect spot in front of the beach, combines unique gourmet recipes at very good prices. Fantastic food, clean, friendly, affordable to everybody in a perfect location, you can't really ask for more!!

This is the restaurant where you need to go and eat your fish when visiting Chania. Always fresh fish and wild greens, feta is real feta and the most important the owner and personnel will make you to remember your evening. Food with this quality is low-priced.

I think most reviews on here rave about the seafood... unfortunately, we are not seafood fans (unless is California fish tacos lol!). So keep that in mind as you read the review... we didn't try what they are most famous for. We ordered fava bean dip, vine leaves, carbonara pasta, chicken schnitzel and house red wine. All were tasty, but... More
