I would definitely recommend this restaurant as a great place to have delicious Greek food. We had the swordfish, grilled octopus, dorade and mixed grilled meat. We agreed that it was all really good. I would also recommend the homemade lemonade with ginger. 70€ for 4 meals, drinks and coffee.

Had a lovely visit to this stunning setting. The starters were excellent, very simple, very tasty and all served very hot. Had fresh fish of the day which was cooked to perfection. Mama's cooking dishes were also very good. All served with a smile and a joke. Recommended

This small restaurant located near old town in Chania, offers a nice environment to enjoy some food, away from the hectic tourist streets. The grilled fresh fish and moussaka were both nice, and the pasta bolognese were alright, but not great.

Beautiful restaurant, fantastic food and very nice family serving. Tasteful background music gave the grates last touch. This is the greatest place to eat and have an unforgettable time.

Set back from the hustle and bustle of the main harbour, we discovered this gem of a restaurant whilst wandering around the small side streets of the old town. The setting was beautiful. In what seemed like the ruins of an old castle, this restaurant would make for a perfect romantic dinner. Like others have said, the music played is... More

Most delicious dishes I've ever had in Chania. Not touristic since the restaurant finds itself in a small side-street. Very friendly staff and they're always to reinvent traditional greek dishes.

This place has one of the best designed yards I ever see. Food is great and portions are big. Try for sure Ofti patata (baked potato)

Set back from the harbour, down a tiny street, Ellotia gave us a superb evening. Lovely atmosphere in a Cretan courtyard, the food, wine and service were very good and all at a very fair price ! Would definitely recommend it !
