The location is great along the Nea Chora beach. Went there because of the excellent reviews in the Tripadvisor, but left with disbelief..

What a wonderful location along the Sea. The seafood was fresh and delicious. The menu indicates by asterisk which foods are frozen vs fresh, very few were frozen. My swordfish was wonderful, and my mate's stuffed calamari were fantastic. The English speaking staff was friendly and very helpful.

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.

Visited here on our last night in Chania, wish we had tried sooner, as it was the best we had, service and fresh sea food was second to none, well deserved good reviews .

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
