It was hard to choose from the many harbour-side restaurants but what a great choice this proved to be. Wonderful, friendly service from the off, beer served thoughtfully in chilled glasses, an amazing mixed seafood platter to share including prawns, fresh swordfish, calamari, octopus and sardines (we couldn't manage it all!) and a generous-sized Cretan salad as the ideal accompaniment. Then the typical free raki and dessert afterwards to round it all off.
Would definitely recommend this place to visitors of all ages and tastes due to its fantastic view, wide choice of menu and wines and first-rate smiling service

We have lived near Hania for 10 years and consider this the best place to go to eat or just have a drink in Hania. Located right on the harbour, the staff are always very friendly and welcoming, and the food is terrific. Tasty, plentiful and good value for money. Don't bother going anywhere else when in Hania - we don't..............

I have been eating here every summer for years, and the waiters know me as the girl who always orders more than she can eat. I simply LOVE this place - for the view, for the banter with the staff, for the extensive menu and delicious mezedes. Whatever you choose, you can't go wrong. The portions are huge, so go with an empty stomach and some friends. Either for lunch or dinner, this is the place to go.
I particularly like the courgette balls and the cheese and spinach pies, and the Greek salad is hug and wonderful. If there are two of you, try the medium or small mixed meze plate. There are three types, and they allow you to try a iwde variety of dishes without spending a fortune. The small meze plate with a salad is more than enough to stuff two people.
The beer is served from iced glasses. The perfect place to be on a summer's day.
My thanks to the team who always make my meal so special.

My partner and i couldnt get enough of this place after Angelo stopped us convincing us to eat where the locals do ! We were convinced, and it was wonderful! The view was perfect, first time we went we tried the garlic shrimps with rice which became a favourite and a must with every visit to the point that on our last day we decided to order it as a main. Their mix meat plate, gayros and moussaka is devine. Lucky for me i also got to try the red mullet which was extremely appetising and if you feel stuck in order just go for the calamari which is the freshest one i ate in crete. Honestly hats off to Angelo and the team for giving us a wonderful culinary experience . And wish you all the best .
