Taverna Monastiri is in the Old Town and overlooks the harbour. It is part of a very old building with high rounded ceilings. The menu is quit extensive and plentiful. The service is very good as is the food. A very enjoyable evening out, lovely...More

Really amazing, fine dine style Cretan Taverna, reasonably priced. For the portions and quality, I'd say inexpensive compared to the wannabees around the old harbor. It's become our favorite Sunday family dinner spot by the sea. Highly recommend it. Ask for the daily special, can't...More

Main attraction here is the setting and view of the harbour. The service was indifferent but the good Calamari and Souvlaki made up for it. Food here expensive compared to better quality and cheaper options a few blocks back from the waterfront.
