“Very good food on the Chania harbour side”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 August 2014

Although food on harbour side tourist restaurants isn't always great, the food at Glossitses is very good and reasonably priced (just under 20 euros each for 2 courses and a cocktail/glass of wine/a beer). Five of us ate here a couple of times and we found that if you arrive before 8pm you can get a very good table without having to make a reservation, as long as you are willing to leave by 10pm. We had a variety of dishes - salad, Octopus, chicken, pork - and all were very good. The puddings were enormous - big enough to share - and in any case there is complementary raki and watermelon to finish. The location is great - looking straight out to the lighthouse and the harbour opening - with beautiful sunsets. The staff were friendly and the service unhurried. Recommended.

“Wonderful worth the visit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 August 2014

The food was excellent, and the service was great. The location is great right at the harbour although away from the most touristic streets. Reserve in advance if you dont want to wait.

We ordered mussels, octopus and Cretan salad.Everything was delicious and the prices were reasonable. At the end of our meal they offered us the traditional raki and sweets. I highly recommend it.

“Consistently outstanding!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 August 2014

Glossitses is an absolute gem. It sets itself apart from the usual waterfront tavernas through the use of excellent fresh ingredients (especially seafood), and some genuinely inventive cooking. The very friendly and professional service is always a delight. On a blisteringly hot August afternoon, it was the only place that was even remotely full. Highly recommended!
