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. Fabulous view.
A favourite lunchtime restaurant alongside the old port in Chania. There are many fine restaurants lining the old port but Mixalis would be one of the best. Great view.
Other Chania restaurants to consider :
THE WELL OF THE TURK. Style Turkish, hot and cold mezes.
Address: Kallinikou Sarpaki Street 1 - 3, Splantzia, Chania. Tel: +30 28210 54547. Best to book in season as very popular.
CHRYSOSTOMOS. Style Greek meat and vegetarean.
Address: Deukaliona and Ikarou, Chania Town. The restaurant deserves a better position as food and service are both excellent.
COOK PORN. Style Mediterranean.
Address: Potie 48, Old Town, Chania. Tel: +30 28216 00843. Included here as the position is bustling and the burgers excellent.
Very nice restaurant with an excellent chef. Sits at the back of a secluded beach but in the heart of the town. Can be regarded as fine dining with an excellent menu and cellar.
Very Greek taverna tucked away on a backstreet of the village. Great atmosphere and often very good music accompanies an excellent meal. Try the barbequed beef steak or the lamb.
O XAROKOPOS Plaka
Possibly the best welcome anywhere on Crete. A great favourite of everyone due to the home cooking style of Greek food and the hosts mingling with their guests. They will always get you seated.
Other Apokoronas restaurants to consider:
TAKIS in Plaka village square.
Very popular in high season with many returning guests.
DOSISTALIA just past the square in Armenoi on the Nea Chorio road.
Great atmosphere and a restaurant for people with a big appetite.
PSARIS at the east end of Beach Road in Almyrida
Excellent food and service. Competition is very high in Almyrida.
ELIA & THYME in front of the new hotel at the east end of Beach Road.
First class fine dining a la fresco but they also feed the needy next door. Excellent chef who also cooks a great burger.
