Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Overall a nice experience. Our sitting was on the terrace. Went on 7.30pm so also caught the sunset. Service is very nice and polite. We had the spinach and strawberry salad, the seabass and the burger. All three were very nice. Nice crispy skin on the seabass. Prices are above what you can get elsewhere. I was surprised not to see any "local" dishes on the menu (for example cretan salad with their own twist). Also no raki is offered at the end of the meal and dessert is just a piece of ion chocolate (whereas in most restaurants they offer free raki and proper dessert). To conclude, service is good, food is good (but not mind blowing), I just feel like you should be getting something extra for the price you are paying, compared to other restaurants.

Wow this had set a really high bar for the rest of our holiday... Firstly customer service was excellent.. Secondly the food was amazing I had the scallop's for starters, Tiger prawns for main's and chocolate mousse for pudding - well wow to all of it!! Thirdly the wine, I was pointed in the direction of a wonderful Cretan white wine that matched the meal perfectly..forthly we had the beautiful sunset!! Also went with our 16 and 19 year olds kids and am reliably informed that the burger was in their words "Peng" and finally we had just the loveliest desert wine as complimentary drink - I recall something about rose petals!! Well worth it any you'll not be disappointed!

Such an amazing culinary experience at Oinoa, get your taste buds ready you will end up going more than once like I did. It has been also a delightful journey through the different wine regions of Greece following the recommendations of the staff who is very knowledgeable and passionate to combine their amazing food menu with the right wine. The service is outstanding. I can’t wait to go back to Crete to visit them again. Thank you !

We visited the restaurant on one of our first nights in Crete. It was absolutely amazing. The food was delicious, the recommended rose wine was one of the best we ever had and our waitress Christine was super friendly. Definitely going back later this week!

A late October evening, with rain pouring days outside the windows of Wine Restaurant Oinoa in Chania-Crete, we had a perfect dinner with excellent service from the pleasant staff and owners! The old, and I must say, the majestic building, with it’s original details from the golden days of the past, gives you the feeling of travel back to those days. Yet the minimal, modern and cool interior, takes you right back to the present day. And it all is coming together in a perfect symbiosis! Enjoying the atmosphere from the echoes of the past, wondering what these old walls have witnessed, the soothing music from back then and from our time, playing in the background, made our stay both magic and solemnly! Thanks to all of Oinoas people, who brought back to life this amazing house, and filled it with delicious food, excellent wines and a very pleasant atmosphere!! With love from Magni and Anita.

We keep coming back to this splendid restaurant. We love the historic building, the new view from the terrace, the friendly staff and the knowledgeable owner who make it such a pleasure to spend an evening here. Oh and the food. The food is simply sublime, just enjoy with a glass or two of wine. Bravo!

We had a nice table in the garden as per my request when I book.When the restaurant respect what they tell at the booking time this is already a good start. To the welcome until the good night the service was impeccable. Our waitress was knowledgeable of the menu and wine pairing, kind and attentive. The food, everything we tried was excellent. As they offer two service at the evening you don’t feel pushed or stressed as you have plenty of time to enjoy a great dinner. They definitely deserve a 5*.

My wife selected this restaurant for us to try from research on Trip Advisor. They do two sittings for dinner, 7.30 or 9.30. As we were staying 20 min bus ride outside Chania, and had our 11 year old daughter with us, we opted for the earlier sitting. When we arrived at what we thought was the restaurant it looked very unassuming. However, on telling the gentleman there that we had a reservation, he smiled and led us along to a separate entrance advising that we had a table on the first floor terrace. We were greeted on the by a lady (who we assumed to be the owner) and she led us to the terrace. It is a beautiful setting for dinner, with a sea view, and it feels very exclusive. Our waiter was a shy and softly spoken young man but was clearly knowledgeable when we asked for advice regarding the wine. He initially suggested a bottle of red we felt was out of our price range, so he asked for a moment and then returned with another recommendation (not on the wine list) which turned out to be delicious. We were brought bread and salmon mousse (very nice) as an amuse bouche and ordered a salad to start which we shared. My daughter had the chicken, my wife had the pork, and I had the lamb. We were blown away by every dish. Really high end food with bags of flavour. There were three clear plates by the end! We shared a dessert which was also delicious and used the full 2hr dining slot. To be clear, this is an expensive restaurant, but in our view it was worth every Euro. Not a place we could afford to eat often but definitely not overpriced and somewhere we will look forward to revisiting.

My husband and I visited Oinoa for dinner during our last night in Chania and had a spectacular time!! The view of the sunset from the back patio garden is beautiful. We enjoyed aperol spritzes followed by a long wine-paired multi-course meal with the help of the owner/manager. Every dish and wine that we tried was unique, beautiful, and delicious. We particularly enjoyed the sea bass, the fresh salad with grilled shrimp, the beef carpaccio, and the Cretan bruschetta. The mussels and pork tenderloin were also highlights. We highly recommend this place - come hungry and plan to stay a while to enjoy yourself!

We reserved a table day prior to our dinner because it is a popular place. We saved best for last, our dinner in Oinoa was scheduled on our last night in Chania. And it was fantastic! Although it was very windy, that didn't bother us because everything else was amazing. We ordered lamp filet and beefsteak, meat was perfectly done and side dishes full of flauvor. Our host recommended wines to go with our meals and we finished our meal with dessert - chocolate mousse cake with roasted hazelnuts. Atmosphere is lovely, not to crowdy and we felt like we are visiting friends. It was the best 90 euros spent in our entire trip!

Very attentive owners and staff, made us feel cared for. Greaaat food! We liked all the dishes which is rare - and wine pairing is always suggested by the staff. Great scallops, salad with shrimps and meat dishes! Very romantic setting in a beautiful old renovated building. We followed the good reviews and didn't regret it, so we came back twice in a week ;) Definitely a must in Chania! Thank you once again Oinoa!

The worst hamburger served in Crete.!.. Pity as everything else on the menu seemed to be ok. The hamburgers were overcooked ( when we ordred medium) and the spices in them were mroe than the meat. )And if you make the mistake of asking the waitress to serve the hamburger without the bun you are rudely advised that the Chef does not accept any such intervenrtion in his work .

I am sorry that we didn't manage to please you. What you ordered was a burger, not hamburger and we can't simply remove everything from the burger (potatoes, tomatoes, bread, etc) because then what would be left would be a simple burger in the middle of an otherwise empty plate. We hope you can understand this but once again, we apologize that you didn't enjoy your time spent with us.

My wife and I came here with in August on our holiday as we looking for something more upper class and we were not disappointed!! . I'm not a wine drinker myself but asked the waitress for some recommendations and she did not disappoint. It was beautiful!! I ordered the lamb and my wife got the steak and the flavour and presentation was excellent!! To top it off, we had wine and dinner over the sunset which was beautiful. The staff were very friendly, welcoming and I strongly recommend to pay a visit here on your holidays to Chania. We will visit again next time we come to China. 10/10 The lamb was so fresh, soft and full of flavour topped with a lovely sauce with a side of veg and graten potatoes , flavorful, and chewy. By the end of the meal we were planning our next visit. This place is perfect for groups or a casual date night.

If you are visiting (or living in) Chania, this is a must try out! Food is scrumptious, wine list is very interesting and out of the ordinary. Prices are not cheap but you pay exactly what you get- a very good quality of food and ingredients. My only dissatisfaction was that I didn't get to taste their millefeuille...But I should be revisiting them for a second round of gastronomic indulgence.

The best meal I had during my entire time in Greece was at this place. We went here for lunch, and it was a nice view. The lady who served us seemed knowledgeable about what could be prepared gluten-free on the menu and I was provided with gluten-free bread (without asking and free of charge). I had the best mushroom risotto I've ever had in my life, really delicious. Wine recommendation was good as well. We went for lunch because dinner was booked for the next 2 days! The food is amazing and the place is totally relaxed. Highly recommended.
