#Fantastic Seafood Restaurant in Chania

The title "lligo Krasi Ligo Thalassa" is one of the longest names for the restaurant, but it is a temple worth visiting. It is a restaurant located at the entrance to the old port of Heraklion, at the center of the city.

The dishes are traditional Greek meals, with high quality and fair prices. Try the excellent sardines on the grill and the great oyster dishes.

All these are accompanied by the everchanging service, which some complain of its sluggish pace and others indicate its effectiveness. This changes depending on the crowds. This can be avoided if one comes at a less stressful hour.

Alongside the food,one can enjoy the pleasant atmosphere of the tasty restaurant. After a delicious meal, when not too crowded, it is customary to indulge in a barbecue or dessert on the house. However, if you did not receive it, order the famous loukoumades. This is a kind of donut, a ball of dough, dipped in syrup. Many people on the island say that the loukoumades of lligo Krasi Ligo Thalassa are the most delicious in all of Greece.

#Great Restaurant in the City of Chania

The restaurant To Maridaki is a modern styled place, but still very warm and welcoming.

The unique combination here between a seafood restaurant, with the menu changing daily based on what is caught that day, to a cultural and popular Mediterranean restaurant, with a Turkish atmosphere. This place offers food that fills the soul like a warm family embrace, with local foods, fresh, cultural, from a row of pots that sit on the counter.

Next to the seafood options, there are excellent dishes that are slow cooked, like beans in tomato sauce, onion burekas from filo dough stuffed with various meats and chesses, zucchini and mint. A great dish here is the cooked octopus, the lamb and greens dish, meat patties with potatoes and okra.

Staring here is the Crete salad, a local twist on the Greek salad. It includes Myzithra cheese instead of feta, and croutons. Many like the scordia, which goes great with the fish, and at the end of the meal try the local dessert, raki, delicious but not too sweet, with dollops of homemade jam.

This is a great place to enjoy the sunset, with the gentle breeze and the local atmosphere, in one of the most spectacular and special locations on the island. An even better bonus is the great food here.

It starts with the excellent mezes here, including the typical
Tzatziki, the Greek salad and skordalia, which is a wonderful garlic spread. The great zucchini chips are also a great pick. Fish patties are served on the table, with potatoes spiced with dill, calamari with a crispy crust, tiny shrimp and sea fish reminiscent of nuts, fish eggs and more.

Since this is a port, seafood is the main attraction on the menu. One can go and pick the groupers, the barbounia , sardines, grilled octopus, barracuda, swordfish, sepiida, calamari and everything caught in the net that day.

Do not let the dizzying selection confuse you. The food is excellent. Grilled fish, or fried in pieces or whole - each dish is properly tended to.

Desserts such as homemade semolina or cold watermelon and a cold, sharp raki is a great close to a wonderful meal. From the very first moment, the experience here is really special!
