This is a very busy place with the locals. It has a limited selection of food but heard good comments about the place. Service is as slow as it could get. A good exercise for your patience. I finally ordered kolokithokeftedes (fried zucchini balls) which...More

Away from the busy touristy area. Friendly service, very reasonable prices, shaded under trees and very busy with locals. Our favourite place for a drink.

Very good and authentic food. Local products. Good service. Nice place away from touristic madness. Under a big platanos tree. It s the typical original kafeneio of the central square of a village.

The square 1821 is usually full of young people at summer nights drinking and eating. This place is full of life and Kafeneio gets busy on the weekends. You can also go there for coffee and relax far from the touristic harbor.

This is a place that locals eat. It is next to the famous church with mosque tower. The food is authentic Greek and the service is excellent.

Very typical cretan bar kafeneio, in the Splantzia square, mostly frequented by locals. The mezedes are very good, but the white wine is not the best. Better to choose bottled beer. Experience to try and fare prices!
