We had been here on our previous trips to Chania and while we drank here every day, we only ate lunch here once. Well, not this time. We had a few lunches here and drank here every day during our stay. A few reasons why: They keep a good bottle of Stella Artois, crisp & ice cold, perfect on those hot days. The food is so tasty and fresh, there's moreish chilli with nachos, amazing quesadillas, fabulous granny's potatoes, really tasty (and not at all boring) salads, yummy pancakes with fruit, and lots more. The atmosphere is great, it's really chilled and laid back, again perfect on hot days. The location, it's just far enough away from the hustle and bustle of the harbour front and has a gentle breeze that is perfect to cool you down on those hot days. Finally the staff, they are so friendly and helpful, always there, but they never bother you to order something else, they're never in a rush to get you away once you've eaten. Simply put, our holiday wouldn't be as relaxed and chilled without this place. It's like a sanctuary from the crowds and the heat. You can relax, eat, drink and just chill. One day we'd been there nearly 3 hours without even realising it. We go back to Chania in September and can't wait to get there, kick back, relax and enjoy the food, drink and he whole experience.

Dropped in to this weird little bar for lunch and we were really impressed. The food was 'street-foody' with the weirdest names in the menu you've ever seen. They also have a massive range of beers that I wasn't able to get through but the one I did have was nice. The look of the bar is also worth the visit. It's like an artist threw up all over the place with bright colours, and really makes it stand out. I also spotted a pretty beefy turntable set up inside and assume things go off on weekends. Definitely drop in here if you want something a little different - it's well worth it.

Plaka Bar is a funny and small hippie style bar with no sign outside. But with the address you will find it. They have quite decent selection of beers. Excellent music. I like.

Funny area with extraordinary dishes. Great food, good quality, good prices and colourful location with a lot of lovely details. Some steps away from the main tourist attractions. Perfect to relax. We'll come back.
