We have come back to Achilleas from 2 years ago and he doesn’t disappoint. Make sure you order the fresh seafood. A little pricey but good food. If ever in chania will come back.

I wanted so much to try the dried in the sun octopus. They made it with red wine sauce. They also have sea urchin salad. It was fresh and very good. I also strongly recommend the mushrooms! Delicious!

We took the Greek sausages, they were ok, but the wine was not the best, and the complimentary raki was not going smooth. But the most weird was their Greek salad with potatoes and carrots. I was a lot in Greece and was even living...More

Very nice fish restaurant, good seafood and a great view. Fresh grilled squid and octopus in wine are very good. Many locals eat there so it can get quite full on a Friday evening.
