“The best in Chania!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 June 2014

Truly great food! Cheapest and freshest we found in the Harbour! Angelo will make you feel at home, and the service from his staff is second to none! P.S. The Raki really hurts!

“Great meals with a great view.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 June 2014

This restaurant was recommended to us by our travel rep as she was acutely aware that some tourists were ripped off by other restaurants especially on the harbour. This was one of 2 restaurants she recommended as one to trust and we are eternally thankful.

It is situated on the waterfront in the old harbour a couple of bars/restaurants from the old mosque. The view was great both during the day and at night. The staff are welcoming, knowledgable, friendly and can't do enough for you. The food is excellent, well cooked and tasty. The raki is great. It was definitely good value for money. We went back 3 times during our holiday and was never disappointed.

Well worth trying!

“attentive hosts, great food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 June 2014

Strolling along the waterfront in Chania Town, there are many, many choices of places to eat. We were drawn in to this one by our personable host, Angelo, partly from the attractive setting as well as his infectious excitement at having just gotten word Kavouras had earned the Trip Advisor certificate of excellence for 2014. Service was fantastic, Angelo was very welcoming and the wait staff was helpful. The meat dish for two was HUGE, we couldn't eat it all, but it was fun to have a sampling of several dishes. I would put a vote in for a sampler like this that includes some salads or vegetables too :) Thanks Angelo and the rest of the staff for a wonderful meal!
