We ended up going here three times during our stay in chania. The staff were so friendly, funny and accommodating. They always made sure we had a great table with a view across the harbour and were always nearby for more drinks etc. Would definitely go back here!

I was disappointed with my meal here and surprised at how expensive it was. I had the chicken in mustard sauce which was €17.50. The mustard sauce was cold and the dish was bland. We only had diet cokes, again they seemed overpriced at €3.10.

Walking through the old harbour in Chania is a minefield. Every other restaurant has someone outside pressuring you into eating there. Not Zepos. The open front layout means you can look inside and get a feel for the place, menus are, of course, displayed outside, but you are not pestered into entering. We ate here three times during our nine... More

We decided to pick this restaurant out of all the others as they weren't out the front trying to push you in and it seemed quite busy. The waiter was very friendly and took our order of chicken wings and Greek meat pie. Two other tables came in after us and ordered and got their food before us. It seemed... More

These guys are extremely rude and they just don't need you!! While all the other restaurants at the old harbor are welcoming and the waiters invite you, these people take a great pride in ignoring you! Well, one can agree on the decision of the management not to press a walking guest to have lunch/dinner. But when we chose to... More

We tried this restaurant one evening in the summer. It was busy but with some space. The menu certainly enticed us in but when the food arrived it was a little bland and disappointing. The staff were friendly and service was good. The restaurant is comfy and spacious but sadly the food doesn't live up to expectations

My partner and I ate at zepos twice during our recent visit to Crete and both times the food was delicious. We wanted something Greek, which the menu is packed with. We opted for Gyros and they were incredible. The meat was so tender and there was a lot of flavours. The service was great and the staff were really... More

After a day of snorkelling we were looking for a nice meal & a drink to finish off the day. After walking past a few restaurants where they were hassling for business with the normal harbour view inflated prices we came across Zepos Restaurant with a big sign saying hassle free. They didn't need to hassle people as the food... More

Tried the restaurant on my first night in Chania, I wasn't excited, the food was bland and kind of boring. On the good part, and was firstly drew me in, was the lovely lack of annoying waiters trying to stop you at every restaurant.

Perfect location on the venetian harbour with possibly the best food on harbour front. The veal rib was slow cooked for hours and unbeatable. Service was excellent they were so friendly and not at all pushy, like some of the many restaurants in the old town. Certainly one for dinner on your visit.

Thank Tom L
