We ve been twice in Semiramis for food. The service is very good, the place wonderful and the food simply.. Perfect. Big variety of traditional Cretan and Greek dishes, nice wine and tasteful salads!

Reliably good food in a lovely outdoors setting ( with a roof for chillier nights) full of rustic charm in the backstreets of Chania. Whilst the food will be pleasant - and indeed good enough to go back again to - it isn't the best available in Chania. However the overall experience is totally enhanced by excellent authentic live greek... More

We've been here only a few days, but have generally been really impressed with the restaurants and much else about Chania (which is not the usual state of affairs for me) and we made a particular effort to try Semiramisas we had walked past it a few days ago and thought the food looked good....... The food was. Great PomegranateSalad,... More

The menu is vast, and we've been here many times, and every time the food has been excellent, and portions good. The waiters attentive, and evening ambience, lovely. Live music every night

I thought the Moussaka portion was a bit mean. Definitely had better food at better prices here in Chania. The dining area looks nice though.

We loved the small plates - hot and cold, great to share. Salads also very good. Portions are big so don't over-order!

We stumbled onto this place a few streets back from the crowds of the Venetian harbor. Lovely garden patio with a peaceful table under the trees. It was lunchtime and we were looking for something light. My salad ('Pomegranate') was a lovely fresh combination and a nice change from the usual offerings - although my husband had the Greek salad... More

We stumbled across this gem of a restaurant while in search of another and came back to it the following night... SOOOO worth it!! This beautiful garden setting restaurant will make you want to stay in Crete forever. It felt like we were on a movie set... a romantic setting with Bougainvillea, candlelight, and the most amazing live Greek music.... More
