George was more than welcoming. He was the first guy we encountered here in Chania, and he was awesome. Come for the food. Stay for the smiles and friendly atmosphere

I've had an operation on my stomach. It means I can only eat small amounts...plus, I've vegetarian. I don't make point of announcing it. I just ask for things without meat. The waiter absolutely assured me there was no meat in the stuffed tomato. It was full of rice and minced meat. I'm here in Chania for four nights. Such... More

Four of us stopped for lunch here. Somewhat quieter than the narrow nearby alleyways. They serve traditional local cuisine plus more international dishes. Nice setting, good food and good value.

We were suckered in here by the chat, "2nd best restaurant in Chania, 5th best on TripAdvisor" - as I write this it sits at 300 out of 366(?) places. He hovered about constantly til we ordered & ended up taking his recommended mixed platter for 35€. No idea why we got suckered into this, a taster selection of various... More

Nice location, friendly staff. Very good food. Had me a red snapper and grilled octopus. It was certainly worth while.

The food here is very good quality and authentic, the fish fresh and the service and advice excellent from Andreas and Georgos. Definitely give it a try. We went back for more and were not disappointed.

We found this taverna wandering around Chania. We were tired and hungry and the waiter talked us in into staying. The waiter suggested us to take the big fish assorti, but it was expensive for us, so my friend took calmari and I got myself some traditional Greek salad. The salad was very poorly made, pieces were huge and not... More
