My sister and I first spotted this restaurant when exploring the back streets of the old port of Chania, and determined to come back for a meal. It's fairly close to all the touristy places on the waterfront, but couldn't be more different in terms of atmosphere; it's quiet, unhurried, simple yet picturesque. There's a small outdoor area for seating and a small indoor restaurant. The food was wonderfully fresh, and the menu more eclectic than the typical Greek taverna. All the food we tried was excellently prepared and delicious. The people at the table next to us had the same experience, and they had different selections.

We were there on a Wednesday evening, which for years has been the regular night for a large group of French expatriates to reserve a big table inside. It was a little hectic for the staff, but made for a lively time. For an even more relaxing experience, another evening might be a better choice.

We stopped here for lunch with our three picky children. They loved it. We had chicken salad with a mustard dressing (OK but not great), fennel pie (kids loved it, like a quesadilla with veggies), octopus, and the best sweet pumpkin ravioli filled ravioli you could imagine. The service was attentive and friendly.

We stayed a stones throw from this restaurant and almost found it by mistake on our first day in Chania. Th staff are really friendly and the food is fresh and excellent we had swordfish kebabs as a snack one afternoon and they were superb, the apaki (local smoked pork) was the best we had in Crete. The area around the restaurant in very quiet and is a great place to sit and watch the world go by. Worth seeking out.
