“Excellent food a welcome change from the typical Crete food”
Reviewed June 9, 2014

Fine food and excellent advice on wine. Off the main thoroughfare, beautifully decorated and thoughtful presentation. Apparently closing through the.main summer months but if you are visiting later in the season a must to sit inside and enjoy the ambiance and great food. Light, extremely tasty and not Greek.

“Superb!”
Reviewed March 25, 2014

A local told us about this place, actually he was our launderer near the harbor plaza, told us his parent eat there most nights.
Almost no signage, nothing advertising it, truly, all about locals. A truly remarkable meal, I left full, but wanting more. That was our last meal in Chania, and if I were ever to return to Crete, it'll be my first stop.

“Not the cheapest place in Chania but well worth the visit.”
Reviewed September 28, 2013

We visited Skoufos & Oinos twice on this holiday having been here on our last holiday 2 years ago. The quality of the food and especially the wine make it a place to eat. They do not serve portions that might choke a horse as many tavernas do. Their portions are just right for a couple to fully enjoy a proper restaurant meal. The owners philosophy is only to cook meals that they can do well and to a high standard. As a result, the menu is small (compared to the average taverna0 but done well.
The area has become more noisy and the one way traffic system now in place has made the road alongside the restaurant busy. The owners are looking to relocate to a quieter area and if they do, they will be well worth finding. In their present location with the excess noise and traffic, it is better to sit inside. However, the food and wine taste good where ever you choose to sit.

“Quality way ahead of expectations”
Reviewed September 17, 2013

My wife and I just had an really excellent meal. Flambeed prawns and the grilled vegetable starter were exemplary and the sea bream and pork fillet were great main courses. The wine recommendations were out standing- he knows his wines !
