“Bio delight.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 1, 2013

Our son recommended this place from a visit he made last year with his girlfriend. Set by the harbourside in Chania with great views we were welcomed by Chris, who guided us through the menu and gave some great advice (do try the Amber award Retsina - delicious). The restaurant promotes organic produce and the quality stood out. We had hummus (rarely seen in Crete) which was the only dish lacking a bit of flavour (more garlic please!), mussels in wine, cheese pies and Cretan sala. All were excellent.
Background music takes a bit of getting used to (jazzy), but once you relax it fits the atmosphere.
Free raki followed (a bit early at lunch, but hey, we're on holiday!) and lemon/coconut pudding - very nice.

“Lovely location and even better food!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 30, 2013

Food is mostly nice around Crete, but restaurants like Glossitses make it so special with their care and taste they are giving in. Add this a very lovely location at the harbor, the result is that there is a very nice place over there, which you should never miss!

“A nice surprise in Chania”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 28, 2013

We’ve chosen the restaurant because of the excellent view in front of the Venetian Port in the Old town of Chania. The cuisine is Greek and bio oriented. The food was delicious, made of fresh fine products and prepared with big caution. I loved the marinated salmon from Peloponnese, accompanied by lemon curd, the fresh tuna and wild greens, the typical Greek delights with scent of orange. The owner helped us to choose really nice wines. I’ve decided to write about the restaurant because in my opinion that is a nice exception in such a touristic place. Excellent Mediterranean meal with refine and pure taste!

“Food heaven”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 26, 2013

Wow this is just an amazing place. Service really personal, every mouthful a dream. We asked for recommendation. The owner recommended a salad of cabbage in beetroot. We weren't sure but decided to trust him. Amazing. Just like everything else. Go here. Just go. Views service food all out of this world.
