As a food lover, I’m always asking around about the best places to dine when visiting a new place. Greek food is one of my favorites – I just love the fresh vegetables, olive oil and cheeses used in many of their dishes! Since Greece is large country, the food can vary greatly by region. When we arrived in Crete, our host recommended some restaurants in Chania, close to where we were staying. One of the restaurants recommended was Salis…
Read all about our experience at Salis below!
– The Location –
Situated directly on the harbor in downtown Chania, the location truly cannot be beat. Along with its beautiful and modern interior, Salis has plenty of outdoor seating where you can watch the boats go in and out of the harbor and people strolling along the wharf.
It’s the perfect place to dine for lunch or dinner with stunning harbor views!
– The Food –
Salis prides itself on exclusively using locally sourced ingredients from farms on Crete and updating traditional recipes with a modern flair.
As soon as we sat down and looked over the menu, we knew that this would not be similar to the experiences we’d had at many of the traditional tavernas around Greece.
While there were items like the traditional Cretan salad and chicken souvlaki, we noticed items like the ‘grilled lamb chops from Kalathas Beach’ and the ‘deconstructed pastitsio with wild truffle with Agios Nikolaos’ and knew we were in for a special meal.
– Know Before You Go –
- Salis is open every day from 9am to 1am
- Reservations are accepted
- Parking can be tricky near the harbor so expect do a bit of walking (bonus: you’ll get to see more of beautiful old town Chania!)
