Dinner last night here was outstanding, service is brilliant. The house wine choices are better than we have found in Crete and the food is high quality, Cretan but with a European touch. Try the pork belly, mussels and the chorizo/cheese starter.... Yummy. Also cool music and nice feeling even when slightly at the edge of main season....

Eat here several times whilst stopping at a hotel not far away. Lovely patio to sit and eat at, excellent food, good local wine by the carafe and very friendly staff. Beware the portions are massive.

I llive & have done so in Crete for nearly 11 years unfortunately this restaurant is too far to visit frequently but on every occasion that I have made the effort it has been so rewarding. Indeed I am seriously considering renting somewhere to stay nearby so that I do not have to drive back to the otherside of Chania... More

Simply you can not beat their wide selection of beers. There is also a good selection of local dishes to choose from and there is always a smile and a good sense of humor from the owners.

Another great place not on any main drag. No question that if you ask any hip local they'll direct you to this place which has a beautiful warm atmosphere and brilliant menu. This isn't the standard 'moussaka and souvlaki' place but rather a hip elevation of foods. Awesome looking burgers and even a great tasting Bratwurst called The Dirty. Had... More
