We were looking for a nice and quiet place to eat when we found "To Karnagio". It looked like the perfect place for us and at the end it was. We waited for about a quarter to be seated as the restaurant was full. We enjoyed two pork chops and a nice Greek salad! Prices were logical and the service... More

Very beautiful place and good food. The potatoes with cheese and apaki was great. The moussaka was ok, not the best (for my taste) but good. The taramosalata and the dakos pretty tasty. Very good experience overall, with nice and relaxed service. A bit more expensive than other places.

First of all, the location is nice. The food isn't bad, but it is nothing special. And the price is too high for the food served.

I was a few years ago in this great restaurant. I still consider To Karnagio like one of the better places in which I ate great food. Friendly staff. All ten day of our stay in Crete, me and my wife ate here. Every time it was something different and each time was great. Prices are decent. Each time after... More

If you're looking for the tastiest food on the planet go to Karnagio! It's in Chania, Crete in one of the side streets in the old harbour. The restaurant is not fancy in terms of appearance but the food is absolutely delicious. The best I've ever had. I always go there when I go to Crete. I would give them... More

We had a lunch in Karnagio. The location is very good, close the old port. The environment is very pleasant, cosy and surrounded by trees. It's seems like a tavern in a village of Crete. A very cool place to eat even in a very hot day. We ordered psaronefri (tenderloin meat) and burger. It was very well coocked with... More

The place looks nice but the good things stop there. The service was slow, the food was terrible and the wine watered. Also, the ventilations is poor. Although we were sitting outside, we smelled like fried fish after we left. Would definitely avoid!

My husband and I have been to this place twice. When we are sick of all the places where they try to drag people inside, this is the place to take a deep breath and relax. It is located by the sea, but not in the front. First day we had three dips (tzatsiki, avocado, aubergine) and a salad and... More

The setting is really breath- taking, in a pictoresque paved square at the side of the Arsenal with nice wooden tables and chairs. As appetizers,we had octopus marinated in vinegar ( a bit hard) puree'of fava bean and korta (local boiled vegetables). Then Cretan specialities: typical smoked pork on the grill with smashed potatoes, soup of cuttle fish in a... More

I had with my family a typical greek meze style lunch in one of the most beautiful restaurants in the old port! Amazing view, good music, good food, and a smily and super polite waitress that made our experience even better! The baclava treat at the end was a plus since every other restaurants treats are dull halvas.

Thank Argyropet
