“Amazing extravagant tastes”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 10, 2013

Fantastic tasting food!!! And nice environment! My favourite dishes are mushroom risotto with trouffle oil and something else that is meaty but cannot remember it's name! The catalogue is long and sooo tasty!!! I wish I would be able to try everything!!! The treat in the end is also something very different!

“Small and Friendly with Good Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 28, 2012

Without doubt Manolis, the chef/owner serves some of the best initiative food in Chania, and we've visited quite a few..
Many Cretan standards are given a creative international twist and there are new specials each day. Our favourites are Steamed Mussels, Chicken in Prosciutto or Mushroom Risotto.
The décor in simple, but stylish and contrary to a previous reviewer we’ve always found the service efficient and friendly.
Even more important Mesogiako is full with locals every night, even in winter.
Praise enough and many are regulars like us.
With Onirodromio next door, Stis Annas opposite and Oinopoieio (Apostalakis) a few doors down, you’re spoilt for choice in Daliani. So if you’re lucky enough to have a few days in Chania try them all.
But if you’re a foodie don’t miss Mesogiako.

“Food is great but someone has to put these waitresses in place!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 12, 2012

The food in Mesogiako is very good and the variety is large! The service though ruins the whole picture, unfortunately. Those girls look tough, they are rude, don't not care for the customer.. THere was one time that I asked for a glass of water and waited for 30 mins, another time they picked some customers up from a table thaey were sitting for 20 mins already (without being served, of course) and t they said the table was booked from someone else!!
Not even once have they brought us a little something on the house, even though we were regular customers, and the ambience due to them is not pleasant. I will not go back there again, unless the service is replaced.. Too bad!

“Nice little restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 15, 2012

Its a nice little restaurant in the old city .
Romantic atmosphere in the tiny street and in the shadow of an old minaret.
Mesogiako offers honest food and its value for money.
Excellent mussels and pork with honey.
excellent desert for free.
We will be back.

“An excellent Mediteranean fusion”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 5, 2012

Mesogiako is a small restaurant located in a back street near the large minaret tower.
I am usually very sceptical about fusion food. But, they manage to cook excellent Greek food with some surprising twists.
I had a wonderful traditional Ntakos (bread crust with tomatos, cheese, olive oil and herbs) and a chicken fileto with dried tomatos and feta. At the end of the meal I had a free pana-cota flavoured with masticha and covered with cherry glyko koutaliou.
