I am seriously missing this place already! The Green Eye is the essence of Chania..laid back, relaxed..good company and good food. I was welcomed back on my second visit as a friend and looked after so well. Everything I ate was delicious aswell as brilliant value. I will be going back later this year..and highly recommend it! :-)

Introduced to The Green Eye by a local, I have returned time and again to this excellent taverna. Ideally situated in Chania, it has an extensive menu of both local and international cuisine. The prices are very competitive and the portion sizes are really generous. The staff are very welcoming and polite without being intrusive. You are welcome to dine... More

This was a real find, the food was excellent and the staff were incredibly friendly and polite. We ate the pork fillet and the moussaka, both were very tasty. The atmosphere was relaxed, just what you want when on holiday. Overall a great place that I would thoroughly recommend.

A very friendly bar / restaurant in an excellent position behind the cathedral. It was right by our hotel and we enjoyed a beer and a chat with the staff on most evenings.

If your in Chania, Crete check out The Green Eye, these guys are awesome. It is very inexpensive, tasty and you are treated like family. Every one there was extra nice and when I missed breakfast (which was included at my hotel) they allowed me to redeem my voucher for a dinner meal. They didn't have to do that but... More

Ate lunch here yesterday after all the good reading reviews, and found it a very pleasant experience. The Boureki was delicious, the nicest I've had in so far in Chania, also the salad great, enhanced by the very good Feta used. far nicer than in a lot of the other restaurants. The service was relaxed and polite and although I'm... More

Also I don't want to talk about great position of restaurant, in old, picturesque part of Chania, beside old church. we, me and my wife Hildegaard were eating the breakfast for a few days in restaurant. One morning our... More

Having read the reviews I did want to visit and by chance came across it at lunch time on the last day of our 3day break. It was a good start as there were many locals in. All having very energetic conversations over coffee and drinks. We ordered one starter, not available, tried another, again not on today so we... More

During our 4 nights in Chania we often used TripAdvisor as a general guide for eating out and made a point to visit this place, seeing as it's rated #1 in Chania on here (and turned out it was only a minute walk from our hotel!). We visited for a late lunch on a Monday (about 2.30pm). Easy to find,... More
