Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We went on the hunt for vegan food and were so pleased we found this restaurant - the best food we had in agia marina. Beautiful setting, the staff were super friendly and the food was absolutely delicious. The vegan options were limited however the...stuffed peppers were the best I've ever eaten, its a shame we discovered this on the last day or we'd definitely have gone back.More

This was a treat of a restaurant. Extremely cosy with excellent food (I had a mixed grill that was enough for two). And after the meal we were offered one of best desserts I've ever had, a Baklava, made by one of the waitresses. It...was to die for. We also got some really, really good Raki (made by the same waitress)More

First ever visit to Chania, 4 visits to Arhondiko agia marina, my new favorite restaurant in all the European countries I have been to, and that is quite a few. My inlaws have taken Rikke and I to so many local restaurants over the last...2 weeks, but only one really stood out. Arhondiko has amazing, authentic, exceptionally well made food. The kindest people; Christos, his wife Anna and their team, serve food with that cretan spark in the eye while Christos' mother, also Anna, cooks up a storm with her team in the kitchen. If you come to Crete, you HAVE to come meet Christos and his family at Arhondiko, but be warned, it is extremely addictive, the setting, the food and the people make it the perfect evening, every evening, except when it is raining😀 The last thing I want to say is, if you don't go WOW at least once during your meal, you brought the wrong tastebuds υγειά σαςMore

We visited this restaurant on our second night in Agia Marina, and the owner made us so welcome. We asked for a vegetarian mezze and it was fantastic. The food, hospitality, price, and service were so great that we went back again on our last...night. It is just up the road from the Rustic Garden. We visited both. This, for us, is more authentic that's its the only restaurant we went twice. Well worth a visit.More

We stumbled on this little gem looking for an authentic Cretan family restaurant and we were not disappointed. As soon as we entered we were greeted with a big smile and welcomed to a table of our choice. Thereafter we had a wonderful evening the...food, service and ambiance was first class with traditional family food all freshly made and delicious with a good wine selection as well. We will definitely be visiting again before we leave. Off the beaten track but a must if you enjoy the real Cretan dining experience especially when you have to book several days in advance for its neighbouring more well know venue !! (Rustic Garden) Highly recommended 😋👍More

If you want to enjoy genuine Greek food in Agia Marina, Arhondiko is most certainly worth a visit. This was our absolute favorite restaurant in the area. The taverna is located a short walk from the most busy tourist street, looking quite unpretentious when you...pass it. When you enter it is like coming into a beautiful garden full of olive trees, a little fountain and lights hanging from the trees. The chairs and tables are genuinely charming and rustic. We went there twice during our stay in Agia Marina, but I wish we would have went there even more. We ordered the Meze for two, which was an excellent mix of Greek delicacies. We were treated with a delicious baklava and raki after dinner. The taverna is run by a very sweet and attentive family and the staff are caring and hospitable in a genuine way. The prices are very reasonable and you will definitely not leave hungry.More

A fantastic authentic taverna, with great food and amazing atmosphere!! When we arrived we were received as family, and treated like one. The staff were attentive and accommodating. We ordered two grill platters, which was a lot of food. The platter only costs 17 euros...and is a bargain if you would like to try a lot of different meats, cooked to perfection (great job, chef). If i ever go back to Agia Marina i would eat here every night!More

It's a place where you'll feel like home. Wonderful hospitality and delicious food. Everything is fresh and homemade and the service is amazing - including the lovely owners. It's definitely the best tavern im Agia Marina, I'm sure you'll leave with your stomach full and...very, very happy. Least to say that it's our second time on Crete and our first-choice place for dinner.More
