Chania Restaurant Irene

The family tavern Irene was founded in 1979 and is probably the oldest restaurant in the area of Akrotiri. It was Grandmas Irene idea, which initially started as a small cafe - where she cooked and served traditional Cretan recipes she learned from her mother. With love and devotion to tradition, Grandma Irene, although without any knowledge of English, was able to make friends from all over the world and the restaurant to be recommended in every guidebook of Chania.
Nowadays our restaurant continues to serve traditional Cretan dishes prepared with extra virgin olive oil and fresh ingredients of our own production.
Enjoy your meal!
