This Gem of a pub is worth the time taken to find it.
Located behind Nea Chora beach among the back streets away from the hustle and bussle of the old town it's a perfect place to wind down.
Ronnie the owner makes you feel at home from the moment you sit down and the service is first class.
We had seen the reviews on Trip Advisor and found they were right in what they said. We called in most days and met lots of UK and European expats as well as locals and tourists and were able to chat with everyone in a really relaxed atmosphere.
A must when you visit Chania. We'll definitely be back.

That's what holidays are all about we stayed at a cheap and cheerful hotel (though a bit dodgy) along Nea Chora beach front. Athough the location was suberb it was finding the Hideaway cafe English bar that sealed the deal and has prompted us to return to Hania (though different hotel next time). The bar owner was an English girl name Ronnie and an absolute delight to be with. There was free live music courtesy of a great band name Blue Spirit, and tasty snacks available to soak up the atmosphere (alcohol)! Best family cafe/bar in the area.

If you want to have a nice evening with nice people in Chania this is an exellent pub for a chat. . One of the best and popular beaches in Nea Chora, walkable distance from the old port.
You get a nice drink and atmosphere and rest your legs before going to eat or whatever you are up to, maybe a walkabout in the old harbour (limani) or a visit to one of the oldest pubs El Mondo ? over 30 years old? Great place, great people, no wind super.

hideaway by nature.
We stumbled across the Hideaway whilst walking the back streets from the beach at Nea Chora to the Old Town. It's an excellent watering hole and there is always a warm welcome from Roxy, the new owner. Although we didn't eat there the food that we saw looked good.

John and Gloria, owners of Cafe Vafe in Xania (Chania) is where the hub of excellent food, entertainment and hospitality greets you with every visit.
My favourites are the Friday night curry nights, acoustic jamming sessions, film nights and sportsnight on Sky.
Great hosts in a great location!
