Description: Corinna Star Restaurant's cuisine cruises the sea of taste following the route of simplicity and authenticity, piloted by Mr. Yannis and his son Vassilis. We renewed our cuisine by simplifying its menu to pure Mediterranean style cooking while, on the other hand, we enriched our seafood dishes with fish from the very same nets of Mr. Yannis. You should definitely consider tasting the seafood pasta with mussels and lobster (if the catch the night before was good...in the end, life's a game of chance). In case you are lucky, don't miss out on this opportunity. And a tip from the house: Accompany this quality dish with Moschofilero or Savatiano (varieties of Greek white wine). In case luck doesn't favour you and the seafood pasta is not available, the "Corinna pasta" is always on the menu, and it's a dish you are guaranteed to enjoy. Achieving superb taste is not easy. It's a secret recipe in itself, one that's multidimensional and with many requisites: Honesty, quality, natural ingredients, passion and authentic atmosphere. In our case, all these originate from the magical scenery surrounding you and from the friendly disposition of the people cooking for you as well as those waiting on you.

The restaurant of Yannis and Vassilis was one of the best around Chania. During our stay we visited other restaurants as well but nothing was like this one. Great value for money, luxurious ambiance, A'Star meals and golden heart personnel. These people almost made us cry of gratitude. They were always calm and smiling and ready to have a talk even if there were many people eating at the restaurant. No tension at all, only relaxing tunes and the sea, no cheating with prices, everything was just worth it, clean, calm and genuine personnel.

Prices were super ok for the quality of the food we ate. And the price for the breakfast (6 eu) was ridiculously low considering other hotels or even cafeterias in the port of Chania. We could choose from a full buffet with everything one might need. Omelettes, bacon, eggs, sausages, hams, salami, cheese, salad, yoghurts, special sweets handmade everyday, milk with A'quality cereals, marmalades, hot bread, fresh juice, coffee (AND espresso in the same price). For us it was HEAVEN. And as if this was not enough, one morning we woke up late and the breakfast was over. But Vassilis prepared for us a buffet of our own you can see the size of half the treats he made in the photos. And this costed the same price as the normal breakfast, no extra charge!!

We tasted some of their plates, corinna salad was delicious and their meats too. All of them presented in beautiful plates. The last day the had some fresh tuna which they prepared as a special meal, with tuna sushi for the beginning along with salad, grilled tuna for main plate, sweet for the end, all with just 12 euros. This is ridiculously low price for the food we ate, for the quality of the preparation, the look of the plates and for the attitude of the stuff.

We really didn't want to leave..

We wen there for dinner after seeing reviews on Tripadvisor.
Salad is great, the tuna was sadly a little dry, the mixed grill is not bad. The food is all right but not impressive.
Staffs are very friendly.
I love most is the sunset view, the restaurant is right at sea, spectacular view. They have tables right facing the sea.
It definitely worth going, maybe not for food but for the view.

My family and I are just back from a week in Chania, we ate in the Corinna Star Restaurant many times for breakfast, lunch and dinner, where there is lovely freshly cooked food on offer, and every meal we had was fantastic.
We also tried other restaurants in Kalamaki and Chania Town but the Corinna Star came up top every time, and was by far the best, in terms of quality, service, taste and of course the setting at the sea front.
Yannis and family were extremely welcoming and nothing was too much trouble, we arrived late after 11pm on Easter Saturday night, and even though they were just closing, we were greeted into the restaurant and enjoyed a superb meal, a big thank you for this, as I know Easter Saturday night is normally a night spent with your family.

Try this restaurant if you are in the area as you will not be disappointed!!
