Away from the rings and bells of tourist spots this taverna provides most authentic Greek food at Chania town and probably further. Their cheese, meat and salads are authentic and of the highest quality, they have several excellent vegetarian and seafood options too. Perfectly clean...More

Sitting in a beautiful location in the oldest - what used to be - cafeteria of Perivolia, on the little square of Kastrochori, also known to the locals and the oldest of folks as Katsistrochori, where the walls, rocks and trees hum stories of countless gatherings with good food and drinking since 1950, we have tried to bring together our love for the Cretan tradition, our birthplace - Crete and its cuisine. Looking forward to welcome you and treat you to a unique experience.
