The family tavern Irene was founded in 1979 and is probably the oldest one in the area of Akrotiri.
It was Grandma Irene’s idea, which initially started as a small cafe where Irene 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 tavern to be recommended in every guidebook of Chania!
Tavern Irene is located in Chorafakia, a beautiful seaside settlement in the Akrotiri area of Chania, only 12 km from the center of Chania, 14 km from the port of Souda and very close to the airport of Chania. Regular transportation to and from Chania makes the area easily accessible.
The amazing location of the village offers easy access to many unique beaches in Akrotiri, such as Kalathas and Stavros, as well as historical sights such as Agia Triada Monastery.
