We were enticed in by a charming greeting by the owner who thereafter totally ignored us. The staff were disinterested to say the least. The meals, allegedly “fresh” tuna and swordfish were basic and unappetisingly presented. Portion size was small. All in all a very expensive, very disappointing experience. Worst meal we have had in Crete. Avoid

We had a very good, leisurely, simple lunch of sardines, squid and Greek salad all of which were delicious. The staff were friendly, helpful and efficient. This is a super place, with lovely views over the harbour to enjoy a meal without being hurried.

Sort of inconspicuous and unassuming place....but these are often the very best ,and this one proved the fact.
Delicious fresh caught calamari and cuttle fish we had... first rate. Greek salad absolutely at its best with tomatoes sent from heaven and feta with a “ good bite” to it, and the local retsina. On the house was served raki and a icecream of the finest quality. Do not miss this place and ignore all the bad reviews listed here.

We stopped off mid-afternoon for lunch following a walk around Chania's beautiful Venetian Harbour. We must have also lucked-in as it looked like a fresh delivery of fish from the local fisherman was arriving with us - so it was a simple case of point and cook. I can totally recommend the full "Grilled" menu - anything on it. The Octopus, Dory, Sardines, Swordfish and Prawns were incredible. You don't need anyting else; a huge salad and some delicious fresh bread also arrived on the table and was complimentary.

Great hospitality by the waiting staff and away from the tourist trap that is the true old harbour, where you simply outlook onto other pubs and restaurants, nowhere near as nice as the view over the boats parked up

We visited many times again and will be back next year

yammas!

I firmly believe that if you don't have anything good to say, then don't say anything. Well, I am about to break my believe. I am not sure where the people who made some of the recent comments ate, but it must have been a different place. This has been without exception the worst restaurant we have ever eaten in. Food portions were minuscule, barely edible and the service was absolutely none existent. Do yourself a favour and eat somewhere else. Anywhere.
