A nicely located restaurant by Fortezza castle... But fortunately enough its not relied on its good positioning and style. This is a real restaurant. Big variety of dishes (seafood orientated obviously) with a rich and high quality wine menu.
YOU JUST CANT MISS the boiled mussles on wine sauce. Even if you dont eat mussles , you will amazed.

Prices are reasonable and makes you feel that the food deserves every single penny you pay. I will visit them again soon ...actually I cant wait.

Went there twice on our holiday, once for lunch, found the place by chance, and once for dinner. Very good food, moderately priced, and very good and friendly service. When we went back for dinner they did their best to accommodate us even though we were a family of 6, and we only waited 5 minutes. You can see that the owner and Maitre'D run a tight ship.
Only downside in the evening were young girls coming round the tables playing accordions not very well for money, but they did go away if you told them to.
Two very good meals and good and friendly service

Absolutely excellent. They were all very friendly, and the food was good throughout. Great views and a nice cool breeze all added to the atmosphere. Good value as well

We came here on our last night, such a shame as we would have gone back another night if we could. Food was good, view was absolutely breathtaking. Service and atmosphere spot on.

Thalassographia was a cafe we went in by accident rather than by recommendation. Our luck could not be even better. The breath-taking view to the Sea of Crete offered by the place defined our first choice. The delicios food and high-standard service made the experience even more pleasant. From the broad selection of dishes filling in the menu Dakos (dry bread with tomatoes and Greek feta cheese) was an unbeatable winner topping the list of food we tried not only here but in Greece in general. My husband hasn't stopped talking about it every time we remembered this place. The only minor drawback that I found in the menu was a watermelon juice. To my personal taste it was more watery rather than sugar-filled like, different from what I tried in other cafes in Crete.
Despite that, the overall experience was so satisfying that we couldn't help but treating breakfast ourselves at the same place next day as well.
