Old doors: a taverna that understands its market (or shares its passion)

These colorful old doors, paint peeling from them beautifully, lean against the stone walls in a charming cobbled backstreet in the Old Town of Chania, Crete. They aren't there by accident. As you can see they're positioned artfully. They belong to the little taverna across the lane, closed for the winter when we visited, sadly. But the taverna is called 'Les Portes' - The Doors! I wonder if they understand a traveller's fascination with the things? Or whether they simply share our passion?

eeek, I totally want to go that taverna!!! How about you and I make a date for when it's open:)

You're on! (as we say in Australia) But don't you hate the possibility that it may be disappointing? I like the element of mystery that surrounds a closed restaurant that you may never get to try... especially one so creative with their exterior decor!

Wonderful DOORS!!!
Sorry not to have seen this in time for the recent doors extravaganza.
These are so beautiful.
All best wishes.

Oh, I'd love to know more about this 'door extravaganza' - I've gone to your site but it's not working...?
