The location in stunning, overlooking the old harbour. One of the only places that doesn't have people on the street trying to get you into their restaurant. And with reason. People will always be coming here, because it is so good. Looking at the menu makes you really hungry, and the menu advice of the owner is very interesting. This place has only local produce, and you can taste it. It is fantastic. We had the best possible dinner, staff was very welcoming and friendly. If I lived in Chania, this place would see me every week. Because, and that is very important, it is really cheap for what you get. I would have paid double the price. Please don't change :-)

Ate here after recommendation. Beautiful freshly prepared food, waiter was excellent in helping us choose. Would definately recomend if you are looking for dinner in Chania. Had the tuna steak, so fresh and beautifully cooked

Definitely the best food we had in Chania. Everything we had, from the fresh tuna, to the snails, horta and prawn risotto with mastiha was delicious and very fresh. The service was very warm and hospitable, and our waiter took time to chat to us and explain what dishes he recommended that day. Can't wait to go back!

Ate here recently a couple of times, once by choice, once invited. The location in the old port is nice enough and the welcome genuine and warm. The food is said to be bio/eco and sourced locally and may well be, the problem is that the actual cooking on both occasions seemed unconvincing and lacked the interesting depth of flavour that is elsewhere the hallmark of decent Cretan cuisine. It is good that they are prepared to try some twists on Cretan favorites but the skill isn't there. Adding in the fact that the portions are surprisingly small you may do better elsewhere.

This place is just excellent. The staff couldn't be nicer and the food is really very good. All this plus great harbour side ambience for a very reasonable price. I recommend it very highly, we loved it!
