Cretan cuisine is distinguished and traditional. Local cheese, famous olive oil and punchy liqueurs are just three of the treats we offer… Crete stands free of mainland Greece, complex and proud with wild, mountainous terrain and a strong traditional culture. Cretan cuisine is renowned both in Greece and internationally for its unique ingredients and flavours.
Based on simple techniques, it’s the variety of local produce that distinguishes the dishes: mountain herbs and greens, bulbs, unique cheeses, fresh fish, the famous Cretan olive oil, and raki, a bracing grape brandy. The good health and longevity of the Cretan people is owned to the traditional Cretan diet.

In Greek we have three words that we use almost indiscriminately: aroma, smell and odor. It’s about the sense perceived by the smell sensor as well certain molecules that have the ability to be perceived by the sensor. When a substance contains such molecules close enough to our nose, this is perceived by the smell. We smell aromatic ingredients that are out of us as well as fragrances found in the mouth during chewing. Also, the science of chemistry and physiology has not provided safe answers for the relationship between chemical odor and aesthetic perception.
Greeks, like other people of the world, do love to drink coffee. Local coffee is usually brewed and filtered, before they are served to visitors, and can be taken with or without sweeteners.
Guests can choose to use their phones for table bookings at the restaurant, order from the menu, access to activities, make special requests and order a room service that will be specially packaged and delivered directly to the door.
Also, popular brands of coffee are served hot, cold, or warm, depending on the desire of each. Many people also like to drink iced coffee, which is usually served in the morning, afternoon, and evenings. Greeks have a different culture from other Europeans in the habit of drinking coffee. They prefer iced coffee, which is made only in Greece, and it is something worth drinking because the taste is amazing and you can’t find it anywhere else in the world. Locals spend a lot of their time drinking coffee in the cafeterias.
