You approach this taverna either from the main road or the beach. The taverna in virtually a step away from the beach,so you can imagine the view and the ambience this creates whilst you're having your lunch or dinner. The food in this taverna is so good that we visited it four days out of our eight days in Chania.... More

I was so disappointed with this restaurant! TripAdvisor really fooled us here. The only thing this place had going for it was the location at the beach. The view was gorgeous, of course, but the positive feelings stopped there. We thought this was a restaurant where we could get some fresh seafood, but all but one of the fish dishes... More

On our recent visit to Crete we ate in Kimatogi several times. The location on the seafront makes it a great place to watch the sun set. The food was excellent and the service friendly and efficient. Thoroughly recomended!!!

Was surprised this place had gotten so good reviews on trip advisor. I thought it was absolutely terrible. The service was slow and the food was so tasteless. The only thing I would have wanted to pay for was the view to the beach. Would never go back!

A spacious, inviting taverna right next to the beach (away from the noise of the main road). Kimatogi's has a relaxed and welcoming atmosphere and the menu has something for everyone. The waiters are friendly and knowledgeable about the dishes. Each day there is a choice of two or three specials, including many traditional greek dishes such as pastichio, giavetsi,... More

Set on the beach in Kato Stalos this taverna is friendly with very reasonable prices and good food. Try the specials they were always delicious. We tried other places but this place beat them all.

Kimatogi is located on the beach, in Kato Stalos, with great views. The food is very fresh and there is lots of local produce on the menu. Giannis, the owner, is friendly, hospitable and professional and recommends only the best. I had sardines there that almost talked they were so fresh with a fabulous avocado salad. My friends had also... More

Great place, I had the mixed seafood plate. It has fried calamari, grilled octopus, grilled cuttlefish, small deep fried prawns, mussels, small fried fish and a whole fish on top (about 10 cm) easily a meal for 2 if you have a starter. @ €13.50 damn good! To finish the meal you are served a complimentary apple cake (small square... More
