Went there for lunch and afterwards for a dinner. Service and food was nice and I'm glad I stopped there for a meal while walking along the coast. The sign fresh sea food got my attention and I wasn't disappointed. Do not expect anything too fancy, this is fish taverna and its very good.

This is a family run restaurant. The environment is not formal but quite relax and friendly. We enjoyed the fish soup most.

We stopped here a couple of times to have early lunch (try the tuna club sandwiches) and watched the fishermen bringing in in their catch.

We went here as we wanted fresh fish and the position overlooking the fishing harbour showed promise. We asked the waiter what fresh fish he had and he explained that there was no fresh calamari only frozen but they did have Sardines. Now for the disappointment Don't try and pass sprats off as Sardines and then when challenged try to... More

Spicy cheese dip...ok...but enough for four...followed by calamari (very chewy) and grilled prawns...completely dryed out and tough . We have to say...they were the worst... More

Had been meaning to try this taverna on previous visits, when I eventually did I was not disappointed. The fresh calamari was not only plentiful but probably the best calamari I have ever tasted, the chips were also superb. Lovely location and friendly staff, I am sure you will not be dissapoonted.

We have recently spent a lovely 2 weeks staying in Chania Old Town. Most days we went to the local beach and whenever we did we dined at Manos Tavern at lunchtimes which was always a pleasure.
