A lovely spot with staff that don't really listen. Food was lovely, but totally overpriced. Such a shame seven of us out for a light lunch and 25 euros each, total rip off. Disappointed

Great quality food, inexpensive, amazing customer service. We had two dinners in our three days stay in Chania. Try the pasticio and leave room for house ice-cream :) Also make sure you visit the bathroom and try the lotions!
