Description: The Michalis Restaurant, the most famous old harbour restaurant,is unique in offering the best of both local traditional and international cusine. Relax and enjoy lovingly prepared delicious dishes are waiting to be tasted.A terrific place to stop off for a tasty bite and a chance to enjoy first-class dishes in extremely good prices. There is a wonterful, friendly, easy-going atmosphere, becoming quite romantic at sunset as purple and orange colors surround the splendid old venetian harbor of Chania. The attitude of the staff and their quick, warm and friendly service will create the ideal ambience. Besides the food an extensive list of excellent local wines is waiting for your choice. You just found the ideal place to enjoy your lunch or dinner!!!!

I just returned from 5 nights in Chania and we ate at Michalis Taverna with a small group on our first night. The port of Chania is surrounded by restaurants, and many of them are touristy with mediocre food. Michalis is definitely one of the better restaurants. Our group had a greek salad and huge platters of fried seafood. The food was very good and a great time was had by all. Also, the view over the harbor is spectacular. if you're going to have an al fresco dining experience on the harbor, look no further than Michalis.

We went in this "restaurant" by accident and we will not visit it again.
They sell overpriced garbage food to the customer.
43 euro for a mixed plate of meat for 2 persons is the most expensive i've ever eat and the quality is very low.
Chicken fillet a'la cream was disappointed.
It's the first time that i've got the Chicken fillet separate from the "cream" and I had to poor it myself over the plate.
Avoid this place and go to somewhere else to eat.

They water down the 'fresh' orange juice and slow service.
They have a great location so don't bother with service or quality.
I will not be rushing back.

Excellent food and wonderful service by the staff at this restaurant. We had a fish platter for just over 22 euros for two of us drinks included. The food was tasty and freshly cooked and plentiful.

We selected this restaurant for the last of 5 evenings of dinner in Chania. Afterwards my wife and I ranked Michalis in the top two for the overall outstanding dining experience. We interacted with at least 4 members of the staff and they were all very cordial. The food arrived promptly and it was delicious with an outstanding presentation. Prices were reasonable and were given dessert of ice cream and chocolate cake. Highly recommended and we would definitely dine here again.
