Meal took forever to arrive, despite being noon and not many customers around. Prices mid to high. Taste was nothing special either. Wouldn't recommend.

Situated next to the sea on the main road between the fortress and harbour Fanari doesn't look much but the service and food were good. Very reasonable prices make this place well worth visiting.

We had a good lunch here at the sea edge. Good selection of main and small dishes from the kitchen across the busy road which makes the servers job all the more difficult. So lovely to sit by the water and enjoy lunch without paying the huge prices charged at the inner harbour restaurants.

Lovely taverna overlooking the sea near the Fortezza. Local dishes, freshly cooked. Very reasonable prices. A lovely place to sit and watch the sun go down.

Our first night - asked if they knew where nearest supermarket was - taken across the road & thru the kitchen & taken to the road where the ATM & supermarket is - fantastic service. Returned another couple of times, both evening & daytime, off the back of... More

Been there many times. And it's really good... Everything I tried was really nice and I would suggest it to anyone. Try moussaka, stuffed baked potato, or suvlakis...

We are on our last night of 12 nights in Crete. This was our choice for our last night. We loved the setting and thought it was much less touristy. The food - oh the food. I am vegetarian so they subbed out for the meatballs and sausage on the fixed menu for us and wow - every single thing... More
