The atmosphere of this place is just magic!!! The ruins, the outdoor seating, candlelight in the darknes of the night!!! Amazing!!! The food is really delicious and the manu gives bigger choice than the other places in the area. The prices are a bit higher than the other tavernas (i.e. no set menu offers), but the quality of the food and the location is worth to pay a few euro more, just once. Visit it after sunset, when the candles are lightened.

My boyfriend and I had dinner here one night because of the magnificent location and building.
We had a table upstairs in the open air and the atmosphere was amazing.
My partner had the stifado which was nice enough, but a tiny portion and I had the lamb baked with lemons and olive oil, which had a great flavour but was all bone and no meat, disappointingly.
The waiter was trying to be friendly, but came over as a bit cocky and pulled Crete to pieces and said he wanted to live in the uk!!
Kind of spoiled the perfect old town experience, but I would go there again, and choose something different from the menu.

The building was amazing - suggest going at night to get the full impact when all lit up!

Service was attentive but fun as our waiter knew everything about UK however never been.

Food was one of the best meals we have had in Chania and that is saying something as the majority have been excellent!

This place is an outside restaurant with plenty of character. They have a good variety of food and the two nights we ate here it was delicious. The waiters were amazingly friendly.
