Stunning setting and tasty food. My mum and I had lunch here while visiting Chania for the day. The food was nice but not the best we have had while in Chania. Wouldn’t visit again for the food but would probably come for a drink and for the lovely setting.

Ela Taverna is wonderful!!

We visit Chania every year and this is the most fantastic place to eat breakfast, brunch, lunch, dinner or just a snack. It is open from early morning to late night and you will recieve a very warm welcome indeed.

The staff are brilliant and very freindly and efficient. Petros is the fastest and hardest working barman you will ever meet. Once you have visited he will remember your order for next time!

The food is always freshly cooked and delicious and you will not be dissapointed and the wine is really lovely and always served chilled.

Thank you again Costas for making us so welcome and enhancing our stay in Chania.

We will see you all again next year!!

We visited for lunch by merely glancing in then going for it. Cleverly making use of a shell of a large old roofless Venetian building, Ela Taverna is spacious and the staff are welcoming.

The zaziki is the tastiest we've had in Crete - many visits over 20 years - and their shrimp and avocado salad is delicious. Not too crowded - we visited on a weekday in late September.
