The atmosphere was amazing, and so was the service. We sat at a table under the trees by a beautiful water stream. The waiters were very kind and friendly, and everything was cooked to perfection... The portions are HUGE, and of high quality. One of the best grilled pork I have ever had in my life... The staff were kind... More

We went here with another party of 4 for lunch in January. Bonus #1 THEY ARE OPEN! ... pretty hard to find a good place for lunch in the off season. The group ordered 2 pork chops, mixed fried vegetables, a stewed meat plate, and salad. Everything was perfect. The salad is like a cabbage slaw that was large enough... More

Excellent home cooked food, large portions. Warm atmosphere in summer and winter. Armenni is about five minutes drive from Kalyves and 30 minutes east of Chania, just off the main National Road.

Everything is fresh homemade with local ingredients. Service is customer oriented and helped us order (trying to protect us from ordering to many courses...instead of trying to upsell). Fries, tzatziki, dakos, fried vegetables, two main courses, one salad, wine for 37,5€

Had Sunday lunch here with many locals. The restaurant is in three parts: inside the building, a terrace by the road and an outdoor area under a huge walnut tree. We opted for the latter. There must have been hundreds of people dining there that afternoon , mostly it seemed in extended families sitting at long tables, creating a happy... More

The Cretan salad , small portion, is huge and delicious, enough for 2 or more to share. Lamb chops... Mmmmm delicious too. Not too keen on the beef stifado, have had more flavoursome even in the UK, but huge volume of meat. Great service, and the little complimentary deserts served with the Raki, just perfect. Would visit again and again....... More

The food was very good, in abundance, the only issue was that some of the dishes requested were not available. The lamb chops were delicious, the house burger was enormous, filled and covered with cheese. The setting was pleasant.
