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 !

Taverna Volakas, in Nea Chora, along the sea side is one of the few places which serves classic and traditional cuisine of high quality. Both food and wine and raki collected from family farm.

Great place where we have eaten for few days while were in Chania. Traditional Greek cuisine as well as the international meals on the menu. Always possible to impact the way the food is prepared, the size of the portion and pick up the day's speciality. Just go to the restaurant kitchen, taste and select the best of the best.

Very nice mussles and grilled squid, and the Cretan salad was good as well. As a cafe at the beachfront, it works very well.
