“Consistently outstanding!”
Reviewed August 13, 2014

Glossitses is an absolute gem. It sets itself apart from the usual waterfront tavernas through the use of excellent fresh ingredients (especially seafood), and some genuinely inventive cooking. The very friendly and professional service is always a delight. On a blisteringly hot August afternoon, it was the only place that was even remotely full. Highly recommended!

“Best place in Chania”
Reviewed August 11, 2014 via mobile

The food was superb. We recommend the sardines wrapped in vine leaves, the fava, the aliada dip (potato and cod--WOW) and the grilled octopus. But no matter what you order, it's all delicious. The house wine is incredible. After dinner, request the sweet wine in lieu of raki--it's amazing. The service is spectacular. We visited Glossitses twice while in Chania, and our server, Manos, was the best. He sat and visited with us both times (his English is flawless). He recommended good places to go afterwards. We will be back!
