Savoring Cretan Cuisine
Tavernas & Restaurants
We can direct you to the most interesting but out of the way tavernas & restaurants. Find yourselves nestling in a cool and tree shaded valley, or high up overlooking the olives and orange groves. You can eat at places specialising in fresh fish, or local cuisine with a modern twist, or the most heavenly barbecued chops. Ones full of local character, or with a retro feel- you can experience a whole range of eating experiences.
Close to home is the Taverna Lemonia, renowned with the locals from Chania, which is only 5 min walk away. In the next village is Aetifolia with simple Cretan cooking by an indomitable lady, Katerina, using fresh produce from the villagers gardens.
There are many local wines, but a few which offer a really special result. We can direct you to producers working on the fusion of modern technology and oeneology, together with their unique vineyard environments found only on Crete. We have links with two of the best, and can set up visits and tastings for you.
