Whilst walking around a very hot Chania old town, it was time to put our feet up
Not in the main touristy part of the harbour, ( near the old mosque)Platia, still has an excellent view over the harbour and very cold cheap beer!
Having had a couple of them ( rude not to) we looked at the menu, mainly fish but did see someone trying to eat an enormous burger!
Anyway we elected for fish, and it was excellent. Considering the location, it was also all very reasonable, it seems 'happy hour' is more like ' happy day'
Would recommend

Thank pleassy

Visiting the Chania Old Venetian Harbour, whic is a must for the views.
But we decided to have lunch on the front, although slightly pessimistic on food quality and price. These places usually try to pursaude you into their restaurants, the Plateia didnt. We had decided we wanted Gyros and Plateia offered this along with other options for those who didnt want Gyros.
We viewed the menu and the guy didnt push us to come in, we decided to though on our own.

We ordered the gyros, pizzas and greek salad, the food was very good, and not overly priced either. Views are great overlooking the harbour.

We went looking for a grilled platter. It was 24.50 euro but did not include salad so we ordered a Creatan Salad. It is like a Greek salad but had soft cheese and capers. Very good. The Meat platter had lamb chops, burgers, pork and chicken kebabs. the sweet with raki was a chocolate mousse to die for. The service was excellent and so was the food. And we got to see sunset

Walking round the harbour looking for a shrimp saganaki for lunch. Guy out front immediately showed us a photo and described the dish, shrimp mushroom cheese and cream. It was absolutely fantastic. I love the traditional way of cooking this dish but this version was even better. Restaurant was busy but all staff were really friendly and helpful. View of harbour idyllic .
