Great Restaurant in the City of ChaniaThe 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 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.
