We have been there two times in 15 days.
The first time we had to wait 20 minutes to place our order and further 30 minutes to receive the food.
There were only two waiters to serve all the tables in the restaurant. And the waiter told us that he was at the toilet when we arrived, that's why he did not see us (unbelievable). The food was good, so we decided to give them a second chance.
The second time, we had to wait only 25 minutes but the food was awful.The bad surprise was the bill, we had been charged 10% more than the price on the list. So... watch out!

We've visited this restaurant after other top-rated places in Chania and Kato Stalos, and we totally agree with its ranking at the top.
Lovely, special design: tables are widely spread in a large garden with many green "islands" - sunflowers, grapes, rosemary. Romantic illumination.
Tzatziki was delicious, stuffes vine leaves were very tasty, Cretan salad - nothing special, but very good also.
The ranking for value is not excellent, since we needed to pay for fresh water and bread, unlike in other places, where they were on the house. The prices for other dishes were also a bit higher than our previous restaurants.

We tried this restaurant after visiting others that were supposedly higher rated by other trip advisors although i must disagree as this was definately a better choice.
Many other restaurants "Fill" their tables from the front so that they look busy whereas this restaurant was generally quiet at the front as the dining area is in the lovely gardens at the rear.
The staff are very helpful and we tried a good selection of starters as a meze although this hardly left much room for our mains as the portions are quite adequate.
The homemade local cheese pies are wonderful - drizzled with local honey.
Between six of us in our party we probably tried quite a selection of dishes from the menu and we were not disappointed.

Not only has this restaurant exceptional food, but it is also stylishly designed. Beautifully landscaped outside dining area at the back of the restaurant. A must for those who appreciate modern, stylish surroundings and plants. Safe playground for the kids is an added bonus.

Don't be fooled if the place looks empty from the street, the dining area is in the back, away from the street noise.
