Good food. Ordered too much. The bill was for €120 for 5 people. The sea food platter was of generous proportions. But delicious. Great location and well worth a visit.

Following the other great reviews for this harbour based restaurant, we thought we would give it a try.

We had dinner at 9.30pm on a Wednesday I.e should not be the busiest night of the week and yet when we went, quite a few of the dishes we wanted to try they didn't have. We ended up having sardines for our main (a very small dish!) and a lamb dish cooked with green vegetables. The lamb was tender and tasted very nice but compared to other slow cooked lamb dishes I have had at other restaurants, this was very over priced. You are certainly paying for the view here.

The service was also not very good. The staff seems too busy joking with each other rather than making sure their customers were happy - very different to the service received at other restaurants.

We did have some nice melon to end the meal. Having eaten at just over 10 restaurants during my stay here at Chania,this is one of my least favourites. Worth doing your research and trying restaurants behind the harbour where some real gems can be found.

Amphora Restaurant is a great choice for food when you are in Chania. The authentic Cretan cuisine is great and all the dishes are made of original products that the island of Crete offers. The staff was quite friendly, the prices are very reasonable and the atmosphere was very cozy. I totally recommend Amphora Restaurant for your dinner or launch if you are in Chania.

We visited Amhora Restaurant on August and we are very satisfied of our choice. The food was great, the staff quite friendly and helpful and the place very beautiful with great atmosphere. The authentic Cretan cuisine was very tasty and all the dishes were made of authentic Cretan products. Not to forget that the prices were very reasonable. Keep up the great job Amphora Restaurant.
