We were taken here by our Greek friend and perhaps that was why everything was perfect. The waiter was super friendly, the view over the harbour at sunset was beautiful and the food was plentiful and very tasty. We were a table of 3 women and were treated with the utmost respect. We found the prices reasonable and do not understand the negative comments from other customers.

The title of this review really sums up the restaurant and my entire experience in one short sentence.

I went her on a recommendation and was very disappointed. The food was the worst I have had in Crete, service terrible even when I complained to the waiter.

Basically don't even waste your time going to to the Monastiri Taverna! There are much nicer restaurant serving good and fresh food in Chania.

We visited here at 11pm. When the food was served we were surprised by the quantity and quality ( We ordered two seafood dishes, the portion is bigger than the pic on the manual).

Their service was great and bread/ice cream/raki were on house. We felt the bread is more tasty than others.

We have been living in the Chania area for almost 3 years. Monastiri was one of the first taverna's we went to and have never been disappointed. Great food, prices, staff and location on the old harbor. We have close Greek friends that eat here often and trust us that if they eat here...it is the place to be. I will caution that not all of the taverna's on the old harbor are of the same value and best food...but I will comfirm and recommend Monastiri...a really great place...enjoy!!!!

One of the most delicious food i have ever ate. The view in compination with the quality food is the reason why this restaurant is really popular in Chania.. But one very important reason for me is that in this place you can relax and enjoy the view and the sound of the sea. Keep dreaming!!
