“Would go back here again”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 August 2014

I really like the character of this restaurant. Yummy Gramboussa salad.Well food presentation but the pieces of pork dish, the meat was too dry. otherwise it would be perfect. We went there for lunch so it's not crowded and got a nice view from the table.

“Fantastic place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 August 2014

We went directly from Kissamos to Grambousa restaurant, a typical restaurant in the middle of a small village, a bit difficult to find but, when you there, you have: nice people welcoming you, great place, great view, great cretan food, i don't know what to suggest, everything is really good. We came back there 2 times and during the lunch it's possible to have a seaview, i admit, i loved to eat there. Price is fantastic, compared with quality and quantity. Trust me, go there. at the end they offer you fruit, raki and all you want. Great Place

“The best tavern west of Chania!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 August 2014 via mobile

A must try! Excellent quality, authentic tastes, fantastic surroundings. Worth every penny! And the trouble to get there. One of the best restaurants in the area!

“Great food -poor service”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 August 2014

The food was fantastic - very tasty esp the lamb pie with honey-but on both of our visits to this restaurant , once we had been given our main meals it was very hard to get any attention. Had we received the service we got on our second meal , at the first , then we wouldn't have returned. Far too long a wait to have our plates taken away- we weren't asked if we wanted anything else- only knew about the fruit because we saw people taking it. 2 double Greek coffees ordered , hadn't arrived after 35 mins , so I asked again- 10 mins later got 1 espresso. Asked for bill- that took 10 mins and then stood waiting to pay- was v tempted to leave . A great shame - clearly a very popular restaurant - have to queue after 7.30 pm - but to be honest the fab food is spoilt by the service- this needs to improve.

“Fantastic food, shame about the peak time service”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 August 2014

Tonight on our 4th visit we left disappointed and cross! On arriving we noted a blond lady at the entry who promptly turned her back and walked away to chat with her colleagues-we then waited 10 minutes-literally waving to at least be acknowledged -once seated the maître'd was his usual professional best, welcoming and helpful-the food was fantastic but service let down-"May we please have some more water" was responded to by "What" and did not come anyway !
I fear this is a classic example of tourists being valued and welcome other then when there are a majority of Greek visitors at which stage we are less valued and can be ignored-altogether a very dissapointing experience
