The Venetian engineers spent two millenniums building and maintaining the beautiful harbour of Chania. They would calculate the air and the sun's position and build the harbour piece by piece always knowing its potential.
The Monastiri is a taverna which has adjusted to the heart of this tradition. The traditional cuisine in conjunction with a charming sunset, good wine accompanied by the soft sound of the waves, and the friendly service, make Taverna Monastiri one of Chania's top choices of dining - both in the afternoon and in the evening.
It is a must to try all the house specialties and the very original cakes.
The people at Taverna Monastiri have given much attention to their exquisite traditional cuisine, the very carefully chosen wines, their excellent hospitable staff and all this in a unique atmosphere.
Our tavern offers its guests a wide range of Cretan wines and wines from all parts of Greece, as well as local draft wine.
Our range also offers exquisite wines from smaller wine producers.
