Amazing food and friendly service. Meal ends with complimentary shot of raki, which is a nice touch. Free wifi, works pretty well.

What is it that makes a restaurant memorable? When so many restaurants provide excellent but similar Greek dishes, what is it that makes a difference so you go back many times? For us and we are 6 family members, the reason we choose to regularly eat lunch and dinner at Volakas is not because the food is always delicious but... More

Visited with my wife 18 june 2016 and found the food service and view fabulous. Went back again today. Georgie and the other young guy on the floor are amazing. Such passion and speed. We had chicken souvlaki which was great and the pork steak was also delicious. Complementary raki and water melon follows and guests are invited to use... More

Located just along the beach the food is good, with good price, but the service is amazing! That's the major reason to go back over and over again! Highly recommended.

We ordered one of each from their Greek specialties. Moussaka was good, but octopus was not acceptable. House white wine was better than the red.

Have been visiting this taverna for many years and always get a warm welcome. Nothing is too much to ask of head waitress Georgia! Freshly cooked local dishes available every day. In the summer sunbeds are available with waiter service for a very reasonable charge. Great value for money! On the beach so seafood is great. Free WiFi and bottled... More

Yolanda and her crew find the freshest products and cook everything in the traditional Greek way giving you the best meal you will have in the Chania area. They also run the beach across the street so if you want to get some sun and have a great lunch, look no further. If you are looking for pizza or some... More

We ate here 2 weeks ago and we enjoyed it a lot. It is a small and quite restaurant next to the beach offering and amazing view. Despite the size , it is a very good restaurant with very good dishes ,service and prices. I definitely highly recommend you to pay a visit here , you will love it !
