Yammi food with real cretan products in big portions. The service is excellent. Mostly local people visit the place because they know how real Creta cuisine is. Prices are fair enough. We are very happy and I m going to visit it that place again. I feell proud that there is a so nice place in my area where I... More

We reserved and then enjoyed a very nice traditional meal in this restaurant. The restaurant notes its strength as being a traditional Greek food establishment, and in this regard I would agree that it is. Would definitely recommend reserving a table because the restaurant does get pretty full, even in the low season. First off, as a wheelchair user I... More

We went at 7 and had a simple meal of their magical wood-oven bread and cheesey spread, olives, and salt., followed simply by the best moussaka I have esten for years...and I speak as old Greek hand as I have been visiting very regularly for the last 58 years. There was not a trace of potato: the bechamel was not... More

Local Cretan food here was some of the best we sampled in Chania and service was brisk, professional and not overly/fake friendly. Recommend you book in peak season because it's always packed with locals. Prices were average for better than average food. Don't expect a great view!

This restaurant is an absolute gem ! You will find Chrisostmos round the corner from the Arsenal and just at the corner of the 2nd/smaller harbor. We discovered the restaurant by accident - looked amazing from the outside and was full so knew that it must be popular and you could also see that it was visited by the locals... More

Was cold out but found the restaurant bust and cosy. Were were seated without a booking at a cosy little table for two and were served promptly. A selection of starters which included the famous Staka cheese which was gorgeous. We were recommended a lovely Cretian wine, we had Moussaka as our main and was the best I've ever tasted... More

We went "by the book" and considered reviews and blog suggestions and chose this place, farther away from the main port, where all the tourists gather. Even so, there were many tables occupied by tourists. Service is ok, quite impersonal. We had dakos, some lamb with creamy cheese, fennel pies, home-made bread. Everything good, can't complain. Bill a bit on... More
