We ordered tomato balls, vine leaves, garlic bread, saganaki, and wine. We also wanted chicken balls but they didn't have them. Raki and a flan like dessert were complementary. Raki was not good. Acceptable choice for dinner if you are in the area. They are open in the off season so that's a plus! Also, they are dog friendly :)

This taverna is situated at a narrow old-town alleyway. Inside, you will find those typical stone arches that are characteristic for the local architecture and a heritage from osman times. It's a hidden gem and a place t come to if you are trying to avoide the mass tourist spots at the harbour. The food is what you expect in... More

The food and wine were OK, nothing special, but the service was lackadaisical to say the least. The location in the old town (we stayed just up the street) is very good. Perhaps it was towards the end of season and the waiter was looking forward to some time off!

We found this restaurant using Trip Advisor. It was the end of the season and so they were out of a few things: our first choice of both red and white wine as well as the lamb from the oven. So, our second choices were still quite good. The best part was the appetizers! We thoroughly enjoyed the fried mushrooms... More

Situated in one of the many little streets that make up Chania old town, Steki is well worth a visit, not alone for its beautiful setting but also for its excellent food, service and atmosphere. I had the moussaka (one of my favourite Greek dishes) which was delicious. Some of my friends raved about their lamb from the oven. The... More

The atmosphere of this restaurant is so romantic! It is set back in an alley in a beautiful setting. The lighting, the plants, the ruins of an old building, fantastic! The service was good and the food delicious. Great value for money. Highly recommended!

The charm of this restaurant tucked into an alley on a lively Chania evening was hard to resist. My husband and I shared the stuffed squash blossoms, Cretan salad, and an assortment of warm mezedes. This spot is quite popular with the local cats, so expect company by the time your entree arrives!
