Wonderfully welcoming and pleasant eatery. Would not say average but not as good as other tavernas in Chania and Greece at which we ate imho. Wide menu in clean bright surroundings.

There is always a friendly welcome at Diktina. They are only open Friday, Saturday and Sunday during winter but they will be open every day from late March. Good value with tasty food; choose from fresh fish; I would recommend the fish plate or tasty grills or the pasta.

Great quality fresh seafood, simply but well cooked. We visited a number of times over the week and all enjoyed consistently good food. Friendly & welcoming host who seemed to genuinely care. Lovely views over the harbour.
