The owner of the hotel and the owners of the restaurant make you feel like you are in paradise. The hotel is a hidden gem: amazing location, wonderful, quiet and roomy apartments. The view is hard to beat!
The restaurant, with new management and an incredible chef, really has the best food, offering outstanding traditional and fine cuisine. We tried other restaurants around Chania but kept returning to the Emerald Cafe, as the food is exceptional. Also, the fine wine selection and excellent recommendations of the trained sommelier and restaurant manager are a delight. We love Crete and its incredibly lovely, lovely people, and the Emerald Hotel and restaurant are an amazing additional treat to your holiday. We will return for sure! In fact there is no other place we'd stay or eat. We were treated like royalty here, and the owners add a wonderful, caring touch to this amazing place.
