Excellent seafood dishes... More

The staff are friendly and helpful, the food is excellent and the prices are very reasonable.

This local restaurant is situated out of the popular touristic places and definitely one of the best in Chania. Staff is what I'm looking for: Friendly, helpful (esp about recommendations) and polite. You can find various types of Ouzos and fresh seafood here.

The owners of our hotel recommended the Achilleas Fish Tavern to us as they visit it regularly. We discovered later that heir son is a great friend of one of the waiters, Nikos. The bay is quiet and there is no pressure on you to visit the restaurant like with others where you feel 'grabbed' by the street hawker outside.... More

This restaurant was recommended to me by a shop owner in Old Town and I was not disappointed. The seafood was quite fresh and the service was friendly. I received a complimentary bottle of olive oil to take with me and will cherish it. Wonderful authentic Greek meal in my opinion.
