Wonderful staff, especially Michael who was our personal waiter for the night. Kostas is also the most amazing person who look s after guests. The staff are all friends and happy and I feel like I just found a long lost friend when I go there, especially since I am nearly always alone. they look after me

We were impressed that the place was quite busy and particularly with local people, so they should know what's good. Mrs O day Dakos for starter a combination of a garlic & yoghurt sauce over minced tomato and... More

Wonderful staff and great food! I've been in Chania for a few weeks now and if there's anywhere I can name along the cute Venetian harbor that one should visit it's the Monastiri Taverna. The menu is diverse and the staff is very kind and helpful (they also speak English for those who are worried), always a pleasure chatting with... More

In our opinion the best restaurant in Xania. We recommend the fish plate and please try the steamed mussels.

This was one of the recommendations from our hotel. We were not disappointed. Good food promptly served, warm welcoming service, generous portions and ice cream/raki added by the restaurant at no charge. It did not hurt that our waterfront situation have us the most gorgeous sunset over the lighthouse. Strongly recommend!

We were recommended to eat at this restaurant by a local. The service was great, the food was excellent and you couldn't find a better view anywhere. I was pleasantly surprised at how reasonable the food cost and quality was. I would highly recommend this place!

This is probably the best value for views, ambience and food. The choice is pretty cosmopolitan but I usually stick to the local choices and have never been disappointed. The staff have a good sense of humour and are always quick to join in on a joke or two. Saturday and Sunday evenings are usually full because of the live... More
