This is a typical Greek restaurant with a full menu and everything was delicious. I couldn't manage all my meal and the waiters were concerned and wanted to know if anything was wrong - they made a great deal of effort altogether. Three Albanian children came and sang and played traditional bazouki, drum and accordion and they were very talented, the staff were kind and respectful to them because they were genuine musicians and not begging. Clean loos too, very important.

Situated right on the sea front, Amphora has an ideal location to enjoy a meal looking over the beautiful Chania harbour. No hassle to get you in the taverna is one big plus. The other is the Tripadvisor 'Certificate for Excellence 2013' proudly displayed outside. Service is polite and friendly with the offer of help to decide from an extensive menu. We opted for the Swordfish souvlaki, Apaki (smoked pork) omelette, Greek salad and chips. Everything is freshly prepared in on the premises and arrived quite quickly. The meals were delicious but special praise must go for ....the chips! Crisp on the outside, fluffy in the middle and piping hot. Complementary ice cream and Raki followed. All in all, a very pleasant lunch in a beautiful location that came to much less than 40 Euros including lemonades and water. We shall return!

It is an excellent restaurant with amazing food and great atmosphere. Personally I am in love with cretan tradition food and Mediterranean cuisine. Being in that restaurant I met fantastic people and I was surprised with the tastes. You have to try the lamb with greens and rabbit stew. Also the fish soup was amazing.

Friendly restaurant that does not hassle you--great value, view, and amazing food! We had the Greek plate and not only were the waiters friendly, they were exceptionally hospital able and genuine. Recommend this restaurant compared to the other ones on the harbor that hassle their customers! Definitely worth a great visit!
