Thalassino Ageri information
This solitary fish taverna in a tiny port 2km east of the centre among the ruins of Hania’s old tanneries is one of Crete’s top eateries. Take in the sunset from the superb setting and peruse the changing menu, dictated by the day’s catch. Most dishes, like the fisherman’s salad, hum with creativity, or transcendent simplicity like melt-in-your-mouth calamari.
Take a taxi or follow El Venizelou, turning left at Noel St as soon as you veer away from the coast. The owners also operate excellent To Maridaki , in the Splantzia quarter of Hania.
