A family run restaurant with excellent food and attentive service. The mousaka, made on the premises by 'Mamma', is to die for.

This is one of these place you'll never forget! Fantastic menu (I had chicken in the oven, lovely lemon sauce), mom had gyros and tzatziki, could't be any better. After meal we'd been server with local raki and orange-grenadine juice, on the house!
Perfectly localized, just on the main road in Agii Apostoli / Kalamaki, 15 min drive from Chania. Worth every penny! We're going there again today and we can't wait. Must try the fish!

We first visited this restaurant, last year, when we were staying at the Kalliston 5* hotel. The food was first class and, in my opinion,. far superior the the food served in the hotel. In defence of the hotel it must be said that they are catering for the whole hotel, not a personal experience as provided at the Piato. The quality, cooking & presentation of the meals, at the Piato, are first class and i can recommend the establishment, without hesitation.

This year we are staying at the Rethymno Beach 5* hotel and decided to drive the 60km to experience the Piato again. It was well worth the visit, as the food was again superior to the hotel. I think we will return again today, before we return home.

Thank you for the hospitality, from all the family at the Piato.

Piato is a family owned restaurant, which is linked to the hotel Jechrina, operated by the same owners. The hotel and the restaurant are a few km distance from Chania, and at a walking distance from the sea. The tables of the restaurant are disposed near a swimming pool, what gives a special atmosphere in the night and the pleasure to refresh during the day. There are also parasols and sun beds for enjoying the sun of Crete. Jana is the cook, a lovely woman who works hard and with passion. Her husband Manolis and her sun Jerry help at the bar and serve at the tables. The atmosphere is familiar, genuine, and very welcoming. The food is house made, and the dishes, most of which traditional, are the result of that way of doing things with passion and love, following what one has learned from the parents and grandparents. The ingredients used are of good quality, well selected. I have been eating at the restaurant during my 10-days stay at the hotel Jechrina. I was there with my wife and our little son, 6 months old, and we had there a fantastic time, enjoying the kitchen of Jana and the warmth of her family. I had the opportunity to discuss with her about cooking, which is also my passion. My wife and I consider Piato a reference place and are looking forward to come back, for meeting experiencing again the warmth and the welcome of Jana, Manolis, Jerry, and tasting the excellent food. Recommended!
