Not what we were used to in Greece. Place is big with plenty of waiters, but yet service was slow and they were neither friendly nor attentive. Live music was a plus, with a buzuki and guitar. Food was not really tasty, just normal, had better meals at lower prices on all other occasions during my many trips to Greece.

A beautiful and romantic ambience. There was live music (a person playing guitar and singing) which was nice and not at all obtrusive. Food is very good and service good as well.

Good is good like in most of Greek restaurants. We wanted home wine and were given with some in the bottle - waiter changed it with no issue after our request. The place was full of people. But waiters did good job running around quickly.

My other half and I travelled to Crete this year for our summer holiday. We had eaten in chania old town a couple of times and decided to give Semiramis a go as it looked lovely from the outside. Service was slow, the food was average. Just as we had spent 40 minutes trying to get someone's attention for the... More

Neither bad, nor outstandingly good. A dinner at "Semiramis" is not a remarkable experience, though there nothing to complain.

We stayed in Chania for a week and ate here at least three times. They have live Greek music performed throughout the evening to accompany your meal adding to the Greek Taverna ambience. The crispy deep fried battered calamares was amazing...so fresh and cooked to perfection. The other amazing tasty dish was the Lamb Kleftico cooked 'en papillote' served with... More

We had a lovely meal here under the bougainvillea which was in full bloom. The staff were friendly and the food was good.
