Chania is a delightful tourist town. The harbor is the focus of tourist activity. The waterfront around the harbor is lined with what seems like 100's of restaurants. Walking from one end of this array to the other end is somewhat of a challenge. There...More

Faka for sure! We walked past and heard some traditional Greek music. Stoped and asked if we could sit and order some wine and dessert . The waiter reluctantly said yes and then was super rude! The band seemed equally put off by our presence...More

The concert that took place on May 27th was amazing and the atmosphere itself was magical! The staff was very friendly to us and great company, despite the fact we didn't order any meals since all our focus was grabbed by the fantastic concert. We...More

Very nice place, with warm people and great traditional dishes, under the sounds of Cretan live music!

Aivan uskomattomat ruoat, palasimme viikon aikana tänne usein. Erittäin ystävällinen henkilökunta ja tunnelmallinen ilmapiiri. Suuri plussa rauhallisesta sijainnista hieman syrjässä, musiikinpauke ei häirinnyt ruokailua. Ruoka-annokset selvästi kotiruokaa, moussaka, paistettu feta...

We came across Faka by chance. Had a bit of good banter with Akis, took the restaurant’s card and continued on to the harbour. Then we had second thoughts and decided that having lunch in the sun in a quiet spot might be a good...More

Faka is one of the well known restaurants in the harbor of Chania. Very nice, quiet but still on a very good location. Food is always fresh and tasty.

Went looking for a place to eat on a Holiday, many options were limited in the old Harbor area. We came across Faka and decided it was a good choice. My wife and I split the grilled sausages (4), followed by a very nice Greek...More

We'd eaten here on previous visits but this time the service let it down badly, we were on a table at the end of the terrace and while the waiter took our order quickly and the food didn't take too long we were ignored afterwards,...More

It is a family style taverna locatred off the old harbour back left side of the Venetian Armory. Outside patio is shaded by large trees giving it a wonderful atmosphere. Live music performed by authenic Cretan muscians every evening. Patronized by many locals which is a testimony to its quality and value. We travel quite a bit and enjoy good food and service at a good value.
