We went twice to this welcoming place serving delicious fresh food: once for lunch and once for dinner. I strongly recommend lunch as by dinner time some dishes might no longer be available. I had a truly lovely beef soup, and very good grilled cuttle-...fish, octopus in red wine, grilled calamari etc .More

Having read such good reviews we were looking forward to visiting this restaurant. Maybe we chose badly but the mini burgers were dry and tasteless , and the salt cod had a distinctive whiff about it as it arrived at the table - we are...used to this dish in other restaurants so knew it was not right. We offered a bit to the cat sitting underneath the table and it walked away without tasting it so enough said. The waitress cleared our table full of uneaten food and nobody was interested in asking us if everything was ok so we paid and left. Compared with other restaurants in Crete which served delicious food and were friendly and welcoming we found this restaurant a complete contrast. Maybe we were just unlucky but I would not recommend it.More

Found this little gem of a restaurant away from the hustle and bustle of the main drag. We were lucky getting a table the first time we went because we were arrived early. Wanting a table after 7pm you have to book so as not...to be disappointed as we did for our second visit of a 5 day stay. We were food watching. The aromas were tantalising and we were so undecided as everything looked and smelled amazing. They have something for everyone and are really friendly and patient in explaining the dishes we didn’t know. Well worth a visit.More

Owner who is efficient without making you feel dumb or out of place. This is important for a solo traveler. With no reservation you will need to stand in line and when I asked him about a table he told me to go to the...line, but in communicative way where I still wanted to wait in line. And I waited quite a while and as the reviews say, it was worth it. I was seated around 9:45 and was able to watch the restaurant go from touristy-busy to local-busy. Fish soup was excellent! Zucchini fritters would be good appetizer to share. So rich and good! Great environment! Super staff who have worked there for years. Come after 10 PM on a weekday if you want to get a table more quickly. Make a reservation if you don’t want to wait. Don’t let the wait deter you. Turnover was about 40-70 minutes per table. Also, if there are people waiting for a table, it would be kind to not linger for a long time chatting after your dessert. There are other places to do this. Or come later in the evening when there is no line. Be nice😊More

For me this is the best place to eat seafood in Chania! My family agrees and my son says: "Maridakis is a really good restaurant 9.8/10! It is the best place to eat cuttlefish and squid. The sweet treat at the end may vary. I...recommend it and definitely will visit again!" I would also add the words of my wife who loved the fish soup but it was so good that she was speechless.More

We visited To Maridaki after some research and were so grateful to have gotten a taste. A bite in, and our eyes widened with excitement. The palate never lies, and with food this unpretentious and tasty, there was only one thing to do - go...back a second time before we drove off to Rethymnon! To have been acquainted with Kostis was icing on the cake - he was warm and swift in demeanor, peppering our conversations with humor and knowledge of Chania. Thank you for the lovely meals, we are so grateful to have left our Singapore currency with the owner to be placed on his wall of fame. Can't wait to be back!!! **calamari, spaghetti, sea bream, mussels are all to die for.*More

In this restaurant, the owner worked side by side with the kitchen staff and the waiters. He would collect the plates from the vacated tables, maintain the atmosphere with the customers, make sure you feel good. That means having your own business, taking care of...your customers, but above all, being with your employees. All respect to him, his staff & the fantastic food. A setting that I will definitely not forget🤍💙 PS: the products - excellent, the taste - there's no point in talking about itMore
