Restaurant details
Reviewed 27 October 2017 via mobile

It's the oldest fish taverna in the area. Their specialities are omelette with shrimps and fish dishes. What is hard to get is parking space which is available 100 metres away. The place is very well known to locals as the place to get fresh quality fish.

We went to this tavern while on a port call to Crete. We had a delicious meal of shrimp omelet, potatoes, calamari, plus other delicious items. The owners are sweet, and very attentive. If you are looking for a traditional meal with no fuss, nothing fancy, then this is your stop.

We have been coming to Crete for 17 years and have been to this restaurant on several occasions and never has it failed to impress. This is not a FANCY restaurant so if that is what you are after, do not come here. As has been written elsewhere, the location is not its strongest point! However, if you have become a little "tired" of the same style of taverna, this is for you. You will be greeted by the very friendly owner who speaks good English (having lived in Australia) and will just "take care of everything" as if you were his house guest. You will be served freshly prepared food from a fresh salad (yes, no feta!), shrimp omelette (delicious), whitebait or octopus, grilled fish (perfect!) and fried sliced potatoes & zucchini. Washed down with the local vino! A charming family experience. Souda is NOT Chania with its busy streets and hordes of tourists so if you are looking for a change of scene at a "local Cretan" pace, stop by this restaurant for some good food and friendly atmosphere.

The owners were nice enough. Gentle old lovely Cretan man and his wife.

But... 65 euro for five of us - three kids, Three bottles of water and two soft drinks... and not enough food?

Took the three daughters here - paid 12 euro a head for a couple of very small grilled fish, round fries (not cooked uniformly), oily calamari, and a Greek salad with no Feta. The food came at all different times, they forgot our order for wine, and we were still hungry when we left.

There's no menu so no pricing and it was all a big surprise at the end what we would pay. I don't expect to pay adult rates for kids but was charged that way.

Location was not all that pleasant - on an intersection well off the water. Some say authentic experience here on Tripadvisor, I say it was the worst value of any meal on our three week vacation.
