Tonight we stumbled upon this small, cosy welcoming restaurant just along from the Kalliston Hotel where we are staying.
We were offered a choice of tables and picked one out the front. Although alongside a busy road, it was lovely to watch the world go by and experience what turned out to be the best Greek meal I have ever eaten. We choose a mixed selection. A fabulous aubergine dish, Greek salad, meatballs, tzatziki and pitta bread. Everything was hot, fresh and delicious. Very reasonably priced too and we really appreciated the complimentary chocolate cake (also delicious) and liquor to finish. I would highly recommend this restaurant. You will not be disappointed. Fabulous.

This was the best restaurant we visited during our stay in Crete. I was searching for some fish place and we ordered sea bass and dorada. I can't say which one was better! I needed to come again and eat fish, I didn't wanted to try some other meal. You must order home made french fries, they are really good, they are like the ones that your mother would prepare at home. We didn't like saganaki cheese from some reason (maybe because of the breadcrumbs, there were more than we expected), but halloumi was great. My boyfriend ordered lamb chops second time and it was fine, nothing special, just fine. But again about the fish, crunchy delicious crust and juicy in the middle, just perfect.
Also, I really liked this place, because it is family place and they are really polite. You feel like you are in someone's backyard.
At the end you get raki and small pice of cake (everyday is different cake) and this is nice touch.

At evening nurished with meatballs and house wine. Wine was good and meatballs in tomato souce and with french fries ok. Maybe other dish would wake some feelings and passion. Service was excellent though. I think it's worth of check the place.

We went to Orexi three times during our 10 day stay in Chania. The food was fantastic, during our visits we enjoyed three of the different salads they had offered, all of them had a great mix of fresh vegetables, seeds, and either dried fruit, cheese and/or chicken with great balsamic vinegar based dressings. In all cases they were fantastic. We also had fish one time with our salad, another time we had a pork kebab, and the final time a pork gyro platter. In all cases, the meat off the grill was perfectly cooked and seasoned. In all cases, we had plenty of food. Also we really enjoyed the various house wines with our dinners. And the service was great, we really enjoyed our conversations with Maria during our several visits. Would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone who is in the area.

Visited last night. Restaurant was reasonably quite but still had atmosphere. The quantity & quality of the food was very good. Our only criticism is that the main course arrived before we had finished our starters. As this is a new venture for the owners we wish them all the best!
