This is the restaurant where you need to go and eat your fish when visiting Chania. Always fresh fish and wild greens, feta is real feta and the most important the owner and personnel will make you to remember your evening. Food with this quality is low-priced.

I think most reviews on here rave about the seafood... unfortunately, we are not seafood fans (unless is California fish tacos lol!). So keep that in mind as you read the review... we didn't try what they are most famous for. We ordered fava bean dip, vine leaves, carbonara pasta, chicken schnitzel and house red wine. All were tasty, but... More

The location is great along the Nea Chora beach. Went there because of the excellent reviews in the Tripadvisor, but left with disbelief..

What a wonderful location along the Sea. The seafood was fresh and delicious. The menu indicates by asterisk which foods are frozen vs fresh, very few were frozen. My swordfish was wonderful, and my mate's stuffed calamari were fantastic. The English speaking staff was friendly and very helpful.

Not being very hungry, I just chose a nice crisp pizza with my usual quarter litre of red wine, in addition to which I got a huge bottle of ice-cold water and, at the end, a tasty dessert of coconut ice and something chocolaty.
