DINING OUT WESTERN CRETE

Restaurants, Tavernas and Cafes

Dining Out

Another thing the Cretans are well known for is their hospitality. They should be better known for their food. Greek food is not just souvlaki, meatballs, stifado and dalmades ! There are many fine restaurants and tavernas ( grills ) on Crete offering a huge variety of food. This is just a few of them around the Apokoronas area.

REVIEW

Glossitses Restaurant


If not the best, certainly one of the best restaurants at the harbour in Chania. Food is Mediterranean, heavily on the side of Greek seafood. Great food, great service, great atmosphere throughout the whole day and the drinks are pretty good too. The view

Mixalis Restaurant


A favourite lunchtime restaurant alongside the old port in Chania. There are many eateries to choose from around the port but having sampled all of them at one time or another, I would regard Mixalis as first choice for service, food and atmosphere. I've

Semiramis Restaurant


The Semiramis is a restaurant with a great and somewhat romantic atmosphere. The food is excellent but the service can be a little patchy in the very high season, mainly due to the very large amount of covers in this beautiful area of Chania. Style is Gre

Arismari Restaurant


A particular local favourite of our family. This small very traditional Greek style bistro cafe serves excellent food within a great atmosphere. The owners are passionate about good Greek music which can be heard live on many evenings through the summer.

Wonderful home cooked food and a welcome second to none in this very popular village just above the coastal resort of Almyrida. Fotini and Pantelis will even remember you year after year. The restaurant is also popular with expats as the price is more tha
