We were a family of 6 visiting the restaurant for dinner. Food was very good however serving personel seemed to be non-interested in the guests and non-smiling

Good Cretan food, with a nice twist. Also,make the best curry in Crete. However, the service staff should be trained in waitering. It's like being served by prisoners, just imagine. The atmosphere is dead, due to the staff. It's amazing how this place continues, with these Neanderthals. AND, we didn't get into any confrontation. Just honest.

We have eaten here in each of the last 3 years and the food has always been excellent. This time I brought my brother and his fiancé and we were all blown away. We shared the Seafood Special and it was all incredible. The Grilled Octopus was the highlight. Every dish we had was superb and the kids said the... More

We followed other good reviews on this lovely restaurant , all correct and we had good lunch. Located in a small street with old city atmosphere. Family of five and each found his dish. Fresh Greek salad, Amizing Tzatziki, hot and tasty stuffed Vine leaves, good Moussakas and more!. We could not chose better for our lunch.

Whatever we ordered was nicely prepared and tasty, the environment cosy and the staff friendly. On top of that a nice local band playing laika and rembetika songs keeping us entertained! Overall I can comfortably recommend kalnterimi!

Decided to return to this restaurant after having lunch a couple of days before and we were not disappointed. The staff are very friendly and accommodating, finding us a table inside on a windy evening. Both the lamb, which could have fed two, and the salmon dishes were cooked to perfection. No need to order dessert as it comes as... More

We enjoyed this restaurant very much. Not only was the service very good, but everything we ordered for dinner on 3 different nights was fabulous. We are only sorry that we discovered it so late in our stay.

We have eaten here a few times in the last few years and we all agree that it is the best restaurant in Chania town. Everything is great and they clearly put a lot more thought into the food than most places that just churn out the same old dishes. Salads are excellent as well.

We liked everything. We took our table outside, it was dark and not too hot like it was during the day. The atmosphere was fantastic, totally relaxing. We enjoyed the food and service. Next time we're in Hania, will definitely come back, and of course we would recommend this restaurant to our friends.

Thank Zakhar K
