Small menu for greek restaurant but everything we tried was delicious. Greek food can be a little repetitive so having something different was refreshing 😉 Lovely waiters were really accommodating. Choice between street and garden tables. What not to like?!

Lovely but busy restaurant sat outside in little alleyway. Liked that they have a little bench with cushions in the street for people to consider menu. Food nice enough but what we had unremarkable but I would go back.

Worth the search...and with google maps it wasn't difficult. Ancient courtyard and some of the best food of the trip. The mediteranian chicken, the shish kebab. Went back again just for the shish kebab.

Picturesque setting and excellent backyard, very promising menu list. That’s where the fascination ends. Pricey for what it offers, nice herbs even though a bit too much. But very oily pies using improper pastry. Chicken with safron: dry rice, over cooked chicken and not exactly...More

We’d heard of this restaurant the last time we were in Chania and as it’s off the main drag in a lovely little square it took a little exploration before we found it. What a find ! The menu is short but exceptional food is...More

I doubt you can find Halal butchered meat in Greece. As a muslim, I do not pose myself this question when I travel to a predominantly non-muslim country.
