Great place to relax with some drinks or share a mexican dish while listening to chill music and watching the harbour or tv. Also nice cat.

We always try to eat local food when we travel, but sometimes you just need something familiar, and the kids had started missing junk food. So we went here for lunch and had pizza, pasta and mexican, all good food. The service was quick and positive. One drawback was the table....they have these really small, round tables (just a tiny...

Good place. I was there for a conference dinner in June, but it is not exactly a place where to have dinner. It seems more suitable for something to drink (cocktail, beer, etc.). In any case, the personnel is really friendly and the view is lovely.

Nice place for a beer with a good view of the harbour. It is in a quieter end of the town near a museum, on the way to the breakwater and lighthouse.

That's a good place to start your night adventure by having a couple of beers. By the sounds of rock and alternative music you can seat outside, relax and watch the crowd pass by, it's an easy going bar.

The decoration differs from the mainstream cafes. You can cover your apettite with one of the cold and hot dishes they serve and there are quite enough board games to spend the rest 2-3 hours there. Mostly a place for students, slow and happy.

Near the Fortino Boutique Hotel and the Neoria (west side of old port of Chania). As soon you will enter, you will feel immediately part of the Chania youth and everyday life / routine . The guys working there are always cool and friendly, but the best of all is the fact that local people at Chania will buy you... More

Popped in for a simple salad as this place seemed popular with the locals. Loads of young Greeks seemed to be having a laugh over board games and the whole scene looked very relaxed. The salad we had was plentiful and fresh, served with a smile.
