This is a super restaurant serving delicious food, which has regularly visited. The menu is not massive but what is on the menu is very well cooked and delicious. The restaurant on a Sunday is always full mainly locals which is a very good sign. It has a slightly more modern decor suiting the younger generation but don't be put... More

I went here recently with some friends from Chania who had been once before. What a treat. The food is Greek with a twist. We ordered various starters,with ouzo, including Aliada which turns out to be the Ionian name for the classic Greek skordalia (garlic dip). This is usually served with cod but for the starter they put bits of... More

Was just looking for a drink of wine along the Chania Harbour but ended up staying for over 2 hours. We had the house red which was very tasty and since the food that was being served looked so good and the prices were fair we split an order of grilled lamb. It was all very good. Will have to...

Restaurant was warmly recommended me by a Cypriot colleague. It is located aside the old venetian harbor, at 10 meters from Hotel Veneziano, 10/15 minutes of walk from 1866 Square, in a very calm area of the old town. It appears friendly and familiar, and once at the table, you feel as at home. Restaurant personnel is very courteous, always... More

We live quite close to Chania and have visited Glossitses at least five times in the last 18 months, sometimes just my wife and I, sometimes with friends. On every occasion the food has been very good to excellent (sat, 4½stars). Between us we've tried most menu items which have never disappointed. Location is excellent, within a few paces of... More

We ordered the "Pink Panther" spaghetti, rye pita bread, and the potato/cod/garlic dip. Delicious! We will be back for the pasta for sure!!

One of the best fish restaurants I 've been to. Everything is freshly made and the menu includes all the dishes you can find at a fish restaurant but cooked in a very unique way. We loved all the dishes we tried but the rizoto with mastic oil was truly divine! Also really liked the desert wine that they bring... More
