We tried the Greek Salad and the Botanical Park Salad. Gorgeous and enough to feed an army. Such good value too - €5 for the Greek salad and €7 for the Botanical Park Salad. Really good quality food, huge portions and well priced.

We drove to Chania. It was fine but I recommend driving to less crowded places. We decided to drive south from Chania and we found some signs to a botanical gardens. Following the signs, we finally reached the place. There's a restaurant there. We enjoyed the restaurant a lot. It began to rain slightly, and it was magical. We didn't... More

This is the entry and exit point to the walk. The staff are brilliant, the fresh oranges very sweet and the coffee excellent. Useful little shop/book area.

What an amazing place! We visited as part of a tour and seeing this place in the morning have it a real sense of calm. The owners have curated an amazing collection of plants, fruits and trees from all over the world. It's not an easy walk as it's very steep in places but worth the effort. Walking sticks were...

The gardens themselves provide a great introduction to the plants of Crete and also contain a good number of foreign species, plus a small lake with geese, donkeys, deer and other animals. It's worth a visit for the gardens alone but I must mention the restaurant, where we had the best food we ate during our entire stay in Crete.... More

We were recommended a trip to the botanical gardens. We weren't sure as we are a family with teenagers. How wrong we were. Everyone had a great time. Despite the area being subject to a fire some years before, the dedicated team have performed a miracle to bring such a beautiful valley back to life. Do arrive early to avoid... More
