Nykterida, Chania

Talk about having a history! This venerable eatery, in the same family since 1922, is where Anthony Quinn learned the sirtaki, the dance that produced one of the most memorable scenes in the 1964 film Zorba the Greek. And the food, said to be good in Quinn's day, remains so. Chef George Leontaras's menu selections range across the Mediterranean and beyond, but most interesting are the traditional Cretan dishes, such as snails in tomato sauce, or phyllo pockets stuffed with fennel and wild greens. Nykterida is in Korakies, a few miles outside of Chania, but nobody seems to mind the drive, especially because the view from the dining room, overlooking Souda Bay, is so romantic at night that you just want to get up and dance…the sirtaki.

Opens Mondays through Saturdays at 6 pm.
