Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Smashing as always when I visit my favorite restaurant in my favorite town in Mediterranean. I’m surprised that they are able to maintain their high standards year after year! The only problem is that it is harder and harder to get a table here because...of all the good reviews. Stay away when I’m here!😉🤤More

Outstanding service and the food flavor was wonderful. I had the octopus which would strongly recommend - even if it is out of your comfort zone.

The food was ok ish but nothing special, I had the slow cooked lamb and it was very nice and tender and there was lots of it, my wife had the mushroom ravioli which although tasted reasonably the dough had somewhat congealed . My starter...of baked potatoes was just that, potatoes with bacon in a white sauce, fine for someone who wanted a filling breakfast but not really a culinary experience. Unforgivably they served the main dishes whilst we were still eating our starters and we thought that was amateurish and unprofessional. The house red was poor.More

Everything was perfect: the food, the atmosphere and above all the service. Don't miss it if you're visiting Chania. The complimentary mastic liqueur and dessert were sublime.

After visiting Colombo restaurant on previous visits to Chania, we decided to pay a visit one again this year. The waiters recognised us and had a quick chat. They managed to fit us in that evening and as per usual the service and food was...great. They serve a blonde ale similar to Leffe which is lovely and wines are very good. We've booked again for this holiday so I would suggest you give it a try. You won't be disappointed.More

Colombo Kitchen & Bar was another restaurant that we visited 4 years ago and also gave us an excellent dinner experience. so of course we had to come back. We also learned a lesson since we did not had a reservation (recommend strongly that you...do). Luckily we came just before 7 PM and was able to have a dinner as long as we finished before 8 PM. Colombo has a cosy location in the old back streets. A little hidden, but although easy to find. They had improved the menu. Their tzatziki has also carrot in it that makes it fresher. Very good. My wife had fish as main course. Since she likes fish as filet, they prepared the fish at the table. I had lamb that also was delicious. Unfortunately we had short time for our dinner, but again Colombo delivered, and we left very happy. Of course we will come back. Will strongly recommend a visit here, but make reservation in advance.More

Best restaurant in Chania. The food is so fine, the cocktails are a bit crazy and the staff is the best in town. Don't forget to make a reservation, because it's always full.

Not worth the hype. We chose this restaurant because of the reviews. When we arrived and wanted to sit at the table the waiter claimed it was reserved, which later on was revealed untrue. Also the waiters just sit around looking bored as hell and...they were smoking near the tables. No recommendations were given though those were asked. The food was ok, but the appetizer portion sizes were so large you could feed an half army with those. Ofcourse nobody force you to eat everything, but a little heads up would have been nice. Also the prizes got up when ordered. Dont get your hopes up so you wont be disappointed. Averege at the best when it comes to the food and atmosphere.More

We came here for dinner after spotting the restaurant whilst walking past earlier in the day. I am so glad that we did! The food was incredible. Our waiter was super knowledgeable about the menu. We had a cheese pie topped with honey appetiser, tabbouleh...to share, and a slow roasted pork main which melted in the mouth. The restaurant is very popular and you can see why. I would recommend reserving a table so you don’t miss out!More

The food was simply fantastic. All four had different appetizers and main courses and everything was absolutely delicious. Especially the grilled local cheese and chutney, the garlic bread, the kebab dish and the moussaka were mouth-watering.

In our opinion Colombo is the best restaurant in Chania (old town). We loved everything about it: Food, service, atmosphere. The owners do a great job and the food is Gourmet worthy. We liked it most out of all restaurants we been to (Tamam, Salis,...Palas, Pallazo etc.). Although some of them have a "better location" (ocean view), Colombo beats them all! If you can, you should do your stomach a favor and go to Colombo :)More
