This is a nice café/ bar on a little strip 5 minutes from the main harbour area of Chania. It is a bit more relaxed than the centre of town yet still has an atmosphere. The food is a mix of traditional Greek and western....More

At DeFacto they bring you a free bottle of water and ice along with the menus. We had delicious hamburgers and frappes here, but the view is everything.

I've ordered a cup of Americans and strawberry cheesecake. It was awesome, just awesome! Huge portion, lots of strawberry sauce and fresh strawberry on top. Plus they brought some biscuits with the coffee too. And the sea view from the terrace is wonderful!
