Tel: 30 28210 96080's insider take:

Plenty of restaurants in Chania will take you to the cleaners, but in only one, Tamam, can you eat, quite reasonably, in what was once a Turkish bathhouse. The menu is eclectic Mediterranean, but a favorite dish is the Meat Pie Tamam, a mix of chopped lamb, cheese, and spices, cinnamon and spearmint notable among them, baked in a thin crust of the handmade phyllo dough for which Crete is known. Perhaps reminiscent of its origins, Tamam's interior can get steamy on the hottest of summer days, so on those occasions opt for one of the few outside tables, against the stone wall bordering Zambeliou, a narrow, busy alleyway where you must be prepared to protect your wine bottle from the extended elbows of pedestrians.

Open daily noon to midnight, January through November.
