Friendly greeting and quick service. Drinks was on the table the moment we had ordered. Greek salad and tzatziki as starters and chicken souvlaki was a sure winner.

To round it off we were offered complimentary fruits and a drink.

Highly recommended.

At first everything looked so perfect. The restaurant was nicely situated right on the beach. It had some kind of classy atmosphere and the first course the Dakos were just great. The main dishes were pork file wrapped in Parma ham for my wife. It turned out to be delicious. BUT my ribs which also looked fantastic from outside, were raw inside. Can you imagine that the cornerstone of all Low and Slow Cooking, The Ribs can be left raw? When I showed the raw ribs to the waiter he suggested that he will take the ribs back to the kitchen and they will give some more heat on them on the grill. Which he then did. After a while the ribs came back and now they were definitely well done. Dry as Sahara desert.
This is somehow amazing. We saw that these guys can do some delicious cooking and at the same time they can mess some dishes like this. Left us with extremely mixed feelings.

Dear Guest,

First of all, we would like to thank you for taking time to share your impressions about your experience in Waves Restaurant. It was really kind of you to share about our beautiful atmosphere and that you find it classy.

However, we are really disappointed that the cooking, partly, was not to your taste. Our Chef and his team every time prepare their dishes with respect and professionalism.

We hope that you will give us another chance of proving you that we do deserve our rating and can be up to your expectations.

Warm regards,
The Management

Excellent Greek Cretan Cuisine is only at the Waves Restaurant of Platanias at Chania. Many choices for everyone – meat, seafood, pastas, pizza, salads. Casual atmosphere, friendly and professional staff. Portions are hearty and prices very reasonable. Awesome and clean swimming pool. Perfect playground for the children. Hope to be back soon.
