Lovely place to eat in a derelict bombed building great atmosphere and authentic Greek food. The staff are helpful and friendly. Even with the poor value of the pound the meal with wine didn't work out too expensive.

Our hotel recommended this place to us and we were not disappointed. The place is like nothing else in the UK as it appears as if the place is a half derelict building with no front wall and only half a floor to make up the first floor. However that is the whole charm and selling point.

Service was very good to start with, but then became a little Greek towards the end with us having to ask to see the dessert menu after having sat for ten minutes after they had cleared away our mains.

The main meals themselves were very tasty and not one of the oversized portions that you seem to get elsewhere. My chicken wrapped in vine leaves came stuffed with cheese and meat and a lovely pesto sauce.

We had apple pie and baklava to finish and both were excellent.

Although it's not overlooking the harbour or anywhere scenic,it is worth searching for and trying.

Probably the prettiest restaurant in Chania! You can't help but stop and admire the front of this restaurant as you walk past, we were fortunate to have booked a table on the second floor overlooking the street. The service we received is without doubt the best of all the restaurants we visited on our 10 night stay in Chania. The waiters are very attentive without disturbing you ensuring your wine is always topped up etc. The food is beautiful and me and my girlfriend enjoyed all our courses and she commented that the steak she had was probably one of the most tender she has ever had! I highly recommend this restaurant for anybody visiting Chania especially for the level of service you will receive.
