The restaurant is a good place to eat. Especially the view in the evening when the sun sets after the mountain and the view is spectacular. Food is good, service is fairly speedy. The regular portion of mixed grill/seafood is very good and large and will cost a bit more than the menu version.

We had an enjoyable dinner at a great price. The baked feta was marvellous. My husband and I both had the grilled sea bream. They filleted the fish so there were very few bones. The lemon sauce was light and added a nice taste to the fish.

There are so many restaurants to choose from in chania that you are spoilt for choice. We chose this one as it offered some great fish dishes and also some vegetarian choices. The menu was extensive and there was something for everyone. It was a mid range choice price wise. We arrived at 7:30pm and there were a few people... More

Stopped in by the Monastiri while walking around the harbour in Chania, lots of places to choose from but when we looked at the menu outside the waiter was helpful and not pushy with good English, so we decided to rest our legs and enjoy some lunch. The prices were reasonable and around the same as the other places nearby.... More

This restaurant lies along the waterfront promenade, Akti Tompazi, between the Chania and Old Venetian harbors. It caught my attention, as I walked in front of it. Once inside, I sat in the winterized, outdoor area, looking out toward Chania's lighthouse. The view was gorgeous, and the atmosphere of the restaurant was pleasant and relaxing. There were beautiful, big, fresh-cut... More

We had a few really good meals at Taverna Monastiri Really friendly staff, and tasty food at a reasonable price. We tried a few of the competitors on the seafront, but this is the restaurant we settled on during on visit.

This restaurant is located right between the old port and the Venetian Harbour. Nice touch to have heaters in the "outdoor" area on a overcast and windy day in February. The service was excellent. The dishes were presented very well. However, both the Cretan salad and the feta-stuffed pork souvlaki were bland in taste. I would have expected more from... More

We ordered chicken fillet with mushroom, saganaki, vine leaves, avacado salad, and red wine. This restaurant is right on the harbor with a lovely view, it is open all winter (one of just a few), fully winterized outdoor space with heaters and wind barrier, and also pet friendly. The food was average but the menu was very large so we... More
