Excellent seared sea bass with mashed three veggies and spinach, mussels, stuffed pork tenderloin and mushroom rissotto washed down with the local white wine. The complementary tart and Rakhi should also be mentioned!!

Once again back in Chania for a week we hardly had dinner any other place. Susanna's oldest son is now in charge and manages to keep up the high standards both on food and friendlyness&hospitality. We are impressed, and will be back.
