We ordered the "Pink Panther" spaghetti, rye pita bread, and the potato/cod/garlic dip. Delicious! We will be back for the pasta for sure!!

One of the best fish restaurants I 've been to. Everything is freshly made and the menu includes all the dishes you can find at a fish restaurant but cooked in a very unique way. We loved all the dishes we tried but the rizoto with mastic oil was truly divine! Also really liked the desert wine that they bring... More

I think this is on of the best restaurants in the city to eat fish. It features a lot of recopies from all around Greece and spirits from various places in Greece. It has great dishes and service. It also offers a great view of the old port. Hint: if you order a lot of food, do ask the waiter... More

This is for sure the best place in Chania for our trip. There are so many restaurants in the small town, and we came to here twice. We love the risotto with octopus/shrimp. We also try the pork which is stewed and taste very good. It is so delicious. The place is next to the harbor and it should be... More

Thoroughly enjoyed Glossitses, many thanks. This taverna is set in the Old Port rather than the more touristy (sic) harbour, in an area more popular with discerning locals as well as tourists not afraid to wander a little further. Setting is great - boats right in front of you and a backdrop of the lighthouse and harbour walls. The place... More

We ate here as a family of 4. The view of the harbour and lighthouse was glorious. The host, Chris was very welcoming and was on hand to offer suggestions on the menu. The food was delicious! The muscles and prawns were some of the best I've had and were cooked to perfection. We also tried the cheese pie, which... More

We used to eat here years ago when it was vasilli's fish taverna so thought we'd try it again, Its certainly changed! Modern greek food beautifully cooked and presented using very good ingredients, Its still a bit cramped but definitely worth a visit plus you get a good view of the inner harbour
