Description: The Michalis Restaurant, the most famous old harbour restaurant,is unique in offering the best of both local traditional and international cusine. Relax and enjoy lovingly prepared delicious dishes are waiting to be tasted.A terrific place to stop off for a tasty bite and a chance to enjoy first-class dishes in extremely good prices. There is a wonterful, friendly, easy-going atmosphere, becoming quite romantic at sunset as purple and orange colors surround the splendid old venetian harbor of Chania. The attitude of the staff and their quick, warm and friendly service will create the ideal ambience. Besides the food an extensive list of excellent local wines is waiting for your choice. You just found the ideal place to enjoy your lunch or dinner!!!!

Went because I wanted pizza and someone said it did good pizza. Not many pizzas on offer and ended up going for local sausage and grilled fresh cuttlefish - excellent. Plus service/hospitality good.

Typical Greek taverna. Very satisfied with the food. It is often full, and many Greek customers. Much better value than those in the inner part of the harbour.

This harbour-side taverna is in a great spot. The views of the lighthouse and harbour are quite lovely. We visited this place twice during our week-long stay in Chania because of its location and the friendliness of the staff. On both occasions we enjoyed our meals and the food was OK, but nothing special. The dessert of ice cream and chocolate cake was a nice touch. If you want the harbour view this place would be a fair choice.
