Chania Food & Drink
Kavouras Tavern in Chania Harbour
Excellent food in a waterfront harbour setting .
Kavouras taverna holds a key waterfront position in Chania harbour and is a perfect place to sit and watch passers-by as you enjoy just a drink, a snack, or a proper meal.
Open from early morning until late at night, Kavouras serves breakfast, lunch and dinner as well as snacks throughout the day. Food is fresh and tasty, service is fast, and the staff are always efficient, helpful and friendly. It is very popular with locals too, especially the older men who gather in the mornings for their daily coffee and friendly chat.
Cuisine is Greek/Mediterranean and fresh fish is a specialty as is the ‘picilia’ or ‘variety’, as it translates. The ‘picilia’ for 4 persons (also can be ordered for 2 persons) is huge and is served on a large platter. You can have it with mixed meat or fish, or better still the mixed ‘picilia’ which gives you a taste of everything – small portions of many things, and there will be something to suit everyone in the family. This, washed down with house wine, especially in the early evening as you watch the changing colours of the harbour as the sun sets, is an experience not to forget.
Just a few metres from Kavouras is a little platform from where locals sometimes sit and fish with a hand line – why not let the kids have some fun and do the same while you sit and enjoy the view – not to mention the ‘picilia’ and wine, of course!
