We arrived there after 1.30am and even though kitchen would be closed in a few mins, staff was very helpful and gave us a good overview of the menu. They started by offering some complementary tomato and myzithra (white soft cheese) sauces with olives, baked bread and dakos (local cretan bread). We tried couple of mezedes and they were all...

My girlfriend and I went there "on the flow" with no expectation and from the first bites we were already convinced: it is one of the best food we had in Chania and I believe strongly it is also one of the best places to eat in Crete. The owner is kind and friendly, the food is fresh, local and... More

Great place for tasty traditional mezedes! Service is excellent and ambience is OK although sometimes it gets a bit noisy, since locals like to get loud while listening to live music. There is a great selection of plates, many of which, although traditional in nature and with local ingredients have a different touch and they all taste good at fairly... More

Everything is really delicious at low prices and is located in an cozy place with live music some days. The staff is also really kind, especially Panayiotis the owner!

It a nice "meze" (small dishes) taverna mostly with young people. The dishes were nice and the prices more than reasonable. The best way to order is to speak with Panagiotis or Nikos and they give you detailed discription of every plate. If like to start a chat talk to Panagiotis about old classic motorbikes ;-)

We had twice dinner at this little tavern: inside the atmosphere is cosy and friendly, different than usual, but we sat outside, at the small tables, as it was mid July. Everything we tasted was amazing: Excellent 'marathopita" (the Cretan pie with some sort of green grass inside), the usual Cretan 'kaltsounia' were gorgeous, excellent 'ntakos' and the typical Cretan...

A family tradition is to have onion rings anywhere we go... these guys have the BEST we've ever had. They're not rings but you won't care- they're even better dipped into their spicy cheese! We've had everything on the menu and it's best to go with friends so you can share. When we have visitors it's first place we take... More
