We stayed in Greece for a week. During our stay we went to The Olive tree at least 5-6 times. Loved all food, everything was really fresh, service was really good, prices very affordable and obviously the best views in Chania!

Excellent food, friendly service and beautiful ocean view. Nice place for families, the kids could play on the beach while waiting for the food. Recommend the olive tree pasta and the olive tree salat.
