I went to the restaurant with my family, it was an unexpected experience. A nice place with a very pleasant staff. The dishes and the wines were incredible. This restaurant deserves at least one Michelin’s star!

A very pleasant evening at serenissima. We took the Terre and the Mer menus and shared and the first thing you can tell is that all the dishes are made with love and care. We found some a little bit too greasy (what a shame to put brown sauce with lobster !) or too sweet (the romance desert) but the service is so lovely and the présentation so careful that you still spend a délicious moment and forget it. We particularly enjoyed the advice of the very pleasant sommelier and as far as food is concerned : the chocolate club desert and the beetroot appetizer were perfect. À place we recommend if you want a spécial romantic dinner and moment in chania

Fantastic flavours and well thought out dishes - either on sea or land menus.

Wine pairings were suitable and complimented the dishes well, with great context given by staff too.

In terms of value this is actually very good for what you get however this is far and above other restaurant quality in Chania town, more of a fine dining experience than the low quality high quantity provided by the majority along the harbour front.

I would perhaps recommend sitting inside as the constant stream of people and noise walking past can become irritating, but for some that's part of the experience.

I felt the need to post a glowing review of this restaurant not just for the impeccable food and wine pairing but also due to the professional, friendly staff who made our evening so special.

We chose the tasting menu (5 course) with wine pairing. You have the choice of doing 2 or 3 courses as well as al a carte. However due to being in holiday and enjoying the occasional tasting we decided to go all out for around pp €115 (but I may have misremembered the exact price).

It was lovely to see a range of meat,fish or vegan tasting menus. I also have to say the sommelier was probably the most personable one we have come across during wine pairing sessions and it was a pleasure to hear her explanations of why she had chosen the wines.

A MUST visit for any foodies.
